Reasons to Have a Roof Inspection

roof inspectionMany homeowners take their roof system for granted. Many homeowners assume that a roof made from durable materials can withstand harsh weather conditions and last as long as possible and ignore the need for a roof inspection.

A roof inspection is essential to ensure that your roof is in good condition. Your roofer will be able to spot minor damage before they become major problems.

Here are four reasons to get a roof inspection if you haven’t thought of it:

1. Roof age

Roofs are usually able to last 50 years. However, this all depends on the type and materials used, how they were installed, as well as the maintenance services provided. Wood roofs can last about 30 years. Fiber cement shingles last 25 years and composition roofs 20 years. It is important to identify the type of roof that you have, and how long it has been in place. It should be inspected if it is past its average life expectancy and if it needs to be replaced by a roofing contractor.

2. Weather

You may believe that roofing materials are made from durable components that can withstand weather and withstand time. It’s normal for roofs to deteriorate. They will also be subject to wear and tear over time. It is important to inspect it after a while to determine if it needs any roof repairs.

3. Extreme weather conditions

Your roofing system is built to withstand all weather conditions. However, over time it can become damaged. It is a good idea for your roof to be inspected regularly if you live in an area that experiences strong winds and torrential downpours.

It’s even more important to inspect your roof after a storm or during the winter season. It is possible that you may not be aware of how badly damaged it has been from the extreme weather conditions. You might need to repair some components.

4. Problems with leaks

Roof leaks shouldn’t be taken lightly. They could get into your attic and seep through the walls. They will not only cause damage to your home and weaken its structural integrity but also can lead to mold growth and other health problems that could affect your entire household. To avoid serious damage, make sure your roof is inspected as soon as possible.


We’ve now covered five reasons why you should have a roof inspection: age, weathering and leak problems. It is best to hire a professional roofing company. They should be able to inspect your roof and also perform repairs, maintenance, or cleaning. They’ll make sure your roof is in good shape for your protection.
