Why are roof inspections important?


Posted on: April 6, 2017

As 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, you’ll want to count on a professional. The purpose of having a roof inspection done is to find any problems, assess the 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 or 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 from high winds, an excessive amount of rain or hail damage; to name a few. Locals know that we are no stranger to hail storms here in the Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas and surrounding areas.
If you have taken a look at your roof and have seen any of the following signs of damage give us a call today:

• Loose/Missing flashing

It may be time to get an inspection of your roof done even if you don’t notice any damage, a lot of times there is damage that is invisible to the average person but a professional is trained to spot.
