Why are roof inspections important?
Posted on: April 6, 2017As or home or business owner, you have a lot to consider when it comes to property maintenance. When it comes to maintaining the roofing system on your property, it’s important to stay vigilant. If you notice roofing tiles that aren’t secure, water dripping in areas where it hasn’t previously, or maybe you’ve recently dealt with a bad hail storm, you’ll want a knowledgeable and experienced professional to thoroughly inspect your roof. The purpose of having a roof inspection done, particularly after a severe storm, is to find any problems, assess the potential damage and gauge the remaining life of the roof. It is best to have an inspection where professionals can walk on the roof to get a close-up view. However, some roofs cannot be walked on due to the material, if they are too high, or have steep slopes. We stay on top of the latest technologies available in the industry and can actually bring our very own drone to inspect your residential or commercial roof if need be. This plays an important role in ensuring the safety of not only our professional team but also protects the condition of your roof. If you purchased a new property or have owned it for a while, there are many factors to consider as potential causes for roof damage. Roofs can deteriorate from normal wear and tear, the building framework contracting and expanding, foundation shifting after settling, improper installation, construction or design and damage from severe weather. Severe weather damage can be caused by high winds, an excessive amount of rain or hail damage; to name a few.
