Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, so it’s important it stays healthy and in good shape. One of the best ways to do this is by scheduling a roof inspection after a catastrophic event or just for preventative maintenance. Below are some of the times when you should call in a good Solon roofing company to make sure everything is right with your roof.
- A regular roof check-up
To keep your roof healthy, you should have it inspected by a professional at least once a year. The inspector will check your roof for any damage, and help you understand the condition of your roof at that point in time. You may discover you need a roof replacement, have damage that needs repaired, or may need repairs in the future. This will help you plan for the cost of these future repairs or take care of any current damage before it gets any worse.
- After a storm
Storms can do some of the worst damage to your roof. Loose and ripped shingles, cracks and leaks are all common things that can happen after a storm. The reason why it’s so important to have your roof inspected after a storm is that some of the things listed above can cause water to leak into the interior of your home, causing mold, crumbling plaster and sagging ceilings. Repairing this type of damage is very expensive and can set you back thousands of dollars.
- If you notice damage
If you see any signs of damage on your roof, such as missing shingles, damaged flashing, leaks or cracks it’s best practice to call in a roofing inspector immediately. These things may seem small, but they can turn into big problems if not addressed.
- If you see an increase in your heating or cooling bills
When your roof is in good shape and well insulated, it keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If you start to see your heating or cooling costs going up, it could be a sign that there’s something wrong with your roof or the insulation. Schedule an inspection with a reputable Solon roofing contractor to see if your roof could be the problem and where to go from there.
- Before buying a home
Buying a new home is exciting, but you want to make sure the roof is in good condition before moving in. The roof is your first line of defense against the elements, so it’s essential that it’s in good condition. Plus, there’s the headache of having to deal with thousands of dollars worth of repairs and having your new home turned into a construction zone if you don’t find out the condition immediately.
