In the same way that you take your car into the shop regularly to change the oil and check the engine, it’s important to regularly check on the condition of your roof. Your roof is the main part of your home that is protecting you, your family, and your belongings from the elements. You can best ensure that it is in top condition by checking it regularly with roof inspections. Here is how often you need to schedule roof inspections.
- Annually is best. Even if you think your roof is in prime condition, it can be beneficial to schedule annual roof inspections. That way, you can be absolutely sure that there is no seemingly hidden damage that could be causing damage to the rest of the house. It also allows you to keep track of the condition of your shingles to know how soon they will need to be replaced.
- After severe storms. Here in North Carolina, we’re pretty familiar with severe storms that can have a negative impact on your roof. Whether you have a tree fall through your roof, hail damage, or a seemingly simple rainstorm or windstorm; it may still be beneficial to schedule a roof inspection. Even simple windstorms could potentially tear away shingles or bend them out of shape. A proper inspection can help ensure that not even the smallest amount of roofing damage is left ignored.
