Having your roof inspected by professional roofing companies is an important part of your roof’s upkeep, but have you ever wondered why it is so important? Let Barnhouse Exteriors, LLC, explain its importance, and how professional roof inspections and repairs can head off future roofing problems.
Why Are Professional Roofing Inspections Important?
Your roof is constantly exposed to wear and tear, so it needs to be looked after every once in a while. Think of it as the roofing equivalent of annual medical checkups. A medical professional checks you from head to toe, after which you receive advice on preventive measures for the rest of the year: get more exercise, avoid certain kinds of food perhaps even a change in your sleeping habits. All of these are aimed at preventing situations that could otherwise involve costly hospital bills.
The same principle applies to your roof. Regular inspections helps root out potential roofing problems even before they become costly. It could be anything like a miniscule hole in the roof, which, if not addressed, could lead to major roofing problems in a short span of time. At the end of an inspection, you will receive a report on your roof’s condition, including recommendations on needed repairs.
Why Hire Professionals to Inspect Your Roof?
You have probably asked yourself why you should hire professionals at all. One reason is that established roofing companies like ourselves have the advantage of having access to updated installation and repair methods, which means we can recognize the early signs of a roofing problem, can come up with a repair and maintenance plan on the spot and perform these repairs not as band-aid fixes, but as long-term solutions. Our roof inspection process involves not just the outer roofing, but also the attic and insulation within it.
Another reason is that when you hire professionals, you don’t have to risk injury. We have the safety training and equipment that lets us climb any roof, no matter how steep it is. Any savings you’d garner are not worth the risk. Besides, wouldn’t you rather spend that time with your family? As a roofing contractor that also specializes in gutter cleaning, repair and installation, we can check your gutters for potential issues. If both your roof and gutters require repairs, you don’t have to hire two contractors.
