Whether you live in a newer home or your home’s roof has a few seasons under its belt, it’s wise to have a professional roofer examine your roof regularly. Here are 3 great reasons to have your roof assessed this season.
1. Your roof is too valuable to ignore.
Though a great-looking roof undoubtedly adds curb appeal to a property, it is also an essential part of a livable home. A leaking, damaged roof quickly leads to an uninhabitable house and costly repairs. Prevent any potential disasters by becoming as informed as possible about the proper care and maintenance of your roof. A professional roofer can identify potential weak spots, offer advice on best practices for cleaning of gutters and drains, and help you plan for updates at ideal intervals so you can be proactive rather than reactive when dealing with your roof.
2. Severe weather is unpredictable.
Wind and hail can bear down on roofs with surprising fury, and Mother Nature isn’t broadcasting when her next show will occur. Having your roof assessed before the next big storm will put your mind at ease, knowing that you’ve done everything possible to prevent damage. A professional roofer can also help you understand what to look for after a storm so you can be in the best position to recognize and address any resultant damage to keep your roof strong year after year.
3. Ventilation significantly impacts your roof’s lifespan.
Your roof does more than keep inclement weather out; a well-ventilated roof also allows moisture and humidity to escape. Heated air that is continually trapped in attic space can result in a sagging look to shingles, resulting in diminished curb appeal. Worse, all that trapped humid air can prematurely age your roof. Sadly, sometimes even newer homes lack proper ventilation, necessitating roof replacement years ahead of schedule. A professional roofer can assess and address your roof’s ventilation so that you can maximize the life of your roof.
