Why Your Roofers Want You To Do Regular Inspections On Your Roof

by William Gerard

Did you know that you can have a roofing inspection done on your home every few years? It's something your roofing contractors have likely told you about and you know you should have it done even though you don't necessarily find it to be something you need to have done.

If you're one of those people (and lots of people are) who only call the roofing company when there is something wrong with your roof or when you want to have the roof replaced, then it's worth it to you to explore your options regarding having regular roofing inspections done. The best part is that roofing inspections are neither costly or time-consuming and you can get them done less frequently than you'd think. They come with big rewards though, like knowing the health and condition of your roof more than you do now and being able to spot repairs before they become super costly.

Here are reasons why your roofing contractors want you to do regular inspections on your roof.

Your roof is a costly investment you should be protecting

You take your car to get serviced regularly, and you have your repair person fix your appliances when they aren't working well, so why don't you invest the same amount of time and money in your roof? It's hard to envision your roof being an integral part of your home when you only see it from the outside, but the roof to your home is possibly the most important part of your structure and quite literally the protection over your head.

It can be very expensive to replace or repair a roof, and this is largely due to not being aware when roofing repairs are necessary. Your roofing contractors want you to have regular inspections done because this service is a checkup for your roof and lets you know when something is wrong so you can fix it.

Your roof will last longer if you have inspections done

The best way to get your roof to last a long time is to have it regularly inspected for flaws and small issues that can be quickly repaired, sometimes even on the same day as your inspection. Your inspection can be done every few years or so depending on the type of roof you have. Report all inspections from your roofing company to your home insurance company so they can have these inspections on record. This can help you get your roofing repairs covered by insurance more easily.
