When we think of roof repairs, we often think of fixing leaks or broken shingles after a storm. They bring to mind images of placing buckets to catch drips until a roofer can come to fix the roof. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Patriot Roofing offers routine roof inspections in Utah so you can stay ahead of roof repairs. In our last two posts, we went through what we check during a roofing inspection. In this and our next article, we’re going to look at why roofing inspections are good for your roof and your home.
Here are five primary reasons why homeowners benefit from roof inspections in Utah.
Stay Ahead of Roof Repairs
The most obvious reason to get a roof inspection is to identify and stay ahead of necessary repairs. There are often issues with your roof that are not immediately obvious or that you cannot see from the ground. By having a roofing contractor or inspector look at your roof periodically, you can catch small issues before they become major problems.
Prolong the Life of Your Roof
A well-maintained asphalt roof can last 20 to 30 years, but “well-maintained” is the key. By keeping up with routine maintenance and spotting small problems before they expand, you can prolong the life of your roof by years or possibly even a decade.
Find and Fix Leaks
Often, a leak starts long before you notice dripping or water damage inside your home. With regular roof inspections, you can find loose shingles, damp spots in the roof deck, or other minor damage that you can’t see from the ground.
Your roof protects the rest of your home, and by extension, your family, from the elements. The best way to protect your home is to keep your roof in good repair. Water damage from leaks can lead to rot, mold growth, and structural damage, all of which can endanger your home and family.
Keep the Warranty Valid
In some cases, regular roof inspections are required to keep your warranty valid. If there is damage to your roof that isn’t your fault or is covered by the warranty, the repair costs can be greatly reduced. Paying for periodic inspections is much more affordable than paying for major repairs that could have been covered by your warranty.
