Ideally, a roof inspector will want to inspect a roof when it’s not too hot or too cold or too stormy out… Since your roof is the primary layer of protection from nature’s fury, it’s important to have it inspected, professionally, every few years or so in order to make sure it doesn’t need repairs or replacement.
What are some signs that it’s time for a roofing inspection?
- Twisted or missing shingles
- An inordinate measure of granules where downspouts void
- Spots of dark blacktop revealed by lost granules
- Split or broken tiles.
- Flotsam and jetsam noticeable in gutter canals or depleted
Search inside the house for proof of problems as well. A ceiling stain from rooftop spillage is the most telltale sign, yet consider moving into the attic space to examine for stains on the underside of the rooftop deck.
Do you know what your rooftop is made out of?
Asphalt Shingles, which ordinarily last around 20 years, are what comprise the bulk of most roofs. Indications of a maturing or potentially crumbling rooftop are quite obvious from lost granules, splitting, twisting, or even lost shingles during times of high wind.
