At least once a year you visit your doctor for a regular checkup, right? You’re sure you’re healthy, but you go ahead and do it anyway. Why? For some, it’s because they’re not getting any younger (no matter how much they wish for it), and they’re already feeling the effects of aging and for others they go because their wife said to go.
Your roof goes through the same thing. Eventually, it will not function the way it did during the first few years that you got it. Your roof needs to be inspected by a specialist regularly just as you need to come in for a doctor’s checkup at least once a year.
As your house’s first line of defense, your roof has gone through a lot – from the scorching heat of the summer sun to the freezing temperatures of winter of the past years. Don’t think it doesn’t need inspections just because we haven’t seen a major storm in the past months. Being exposed to the elements for so long can weaken your roof.
At Cooley Roofing & Construction, we understand that many homeowners often forge to schedule a roof inspection until there is already noticeable damage, such as loose shingles and ceiling stains. We, as one of the most trusted Winston-Salem roofers, would like to help you keep your roof in good condition.
We suggest scheduling for roof inspection every three to five years. Letting us check your roofing after extreme weather conditions or in preparation for bad weather is also a great idea.
Here’s a checklist of what we will be looking for when we visit your home for a roof inspection:
- missing, loose, or worn-out tiles or shingles
- discoloration present on your panels or shingles
- loose seams or rust spots (if you have a metal roof)
- bare patches or worn-out membranes
- blocked vents
- mold growth
- stains on exterior walls
- damp spots or stains on the underside of your roof decking
- leaking or wobbly gutters
- blocked downspouts
