A Homeowner’s Guide to Safe Roof Inspection and Maintenance
Roofs expand and contract with the weather, causing cracks. Falling leaves, winter melt, and rainwater can seep into the structure of your home through faulty roofing, causing water damage, mold, and other expensive issues. Roof replacement and repair is necessary, but it can be very hazardous for a homeowner.
Inspect Interior Ceiling and Attic
Many homeowners don’t realize you can check a roof’s integrity without climbing onto the roof, itself. You can inspect the interior ceiling of your home and attic for signs of damage such as watermarks, mold, or other signs that water is getting into your home through the roof. Look at your insulation for signs of a problem. If your roof is leaking, it will cause visible damage to your home’s interior.
Use Binoculars to Inspect From Afar
Most roof damage is easily visible up close. However, this doesn’t mean you have to climb onto the roof for inspection. Invest in a good pair of binoculars, and situate yourself across the road from your house. Carefully inspect the roof for buckled, cracked, or deformed shingles. You can also see roof rot and mold stains as well as damaged flashing. If shingles or flashing show signs of damage, you must replace them before water can leak into your home.
Call for an In-Depth Roof Inspection
The moment you see signs of roof damage, call a certified installer to conduct an in-depth inspection. A contractor should check your attic insulation, ventilation, and shingles to save your roof from warping.
