Every homeowner wants to get the most from their roof. After all, a new roof is a big investment. Being proactive with your roofing inspections, as well as not putting off scheduled maintenance conducted by your roofing contractor, can go a long way in keeping your roof in its best shape. Read on as Northwest Construction shares the benefits of regular roof inspections.
It Helps Extend Roofing Life Span
Roofing inspections let you catch roofing problems while in their earliest stages, giving you the opportunity to address these problems before they become bigger, which helps extend your roof’s life span. Roofs are exposed to wear and tear from day one, therefore any small puncture or tear can turn to a bigger problem in short order.
The good thing about performing your own roofing inspection is that it’s not that hard to do. All you need are a good pair of binoculars, clear weather and something for you to document your findings, such as your phone’s camera or a good old-fashioned notebook. You’re not expected to perform repairs, but rather inform your roofing contractor for signs that indicate the need for roof repair work.
It Helps Prevent Unexpected Expenses
Another benefit of being able to spot roofing problems early on is that repair costs will be kept to a minimum. Minor repairs cost a mere fraction of what it would cost to fix issues caused by neglect. In some cases, neglect leads to unexpected roof repairs, if not a premature replacement. It goes without saying that either scenario can put a major dent in your budget.
It Helps Preserve Your Roofing Warranty
Most of today’s roofing warranties require regular inspections and maintenance, and not doing so could void your roofing warranty. This is a reasonable requirement as roofing manufacturers can’t be expected to provide warranty coverage to neglected roofs. If you’re unsure about how often you should conduct your roofing inspections, your roofing contractor should have all the information you need.
