The Importance of Roofing Inspections
The best way to ensure your home’s roofing system is working properly and there aren’t any issues is to hire a professional to come and give a full inspection. During their evaluation, the professional can carefully assess the condition of your roof and be on the lookout for any signs of damage. They can also tell you what next steps you should take to correct the problem.
From our team of expert roofers, here are three scary issues that could be found during an inspection, especially if your roof hasn’t been looked at in years:
It’s never good to hear that any part of your home has mold, including the roof. The presence of mold signals that there is a leak somewhere that has been lingering for a long time. Beyond being harmful to your roof’s well-being, mold can harm your health, too. So, now that your roof inspector has found mold, it’s time to address and correct the problem immediately.
It’s possible that there are holes in your roofing system, which can be a big issue, especially when storms and bad weather arrive. Gaps in the roof can result from debris, wind, ice, and more, leading to leaks, poor insulation for your home, and other serious problems. Your roof inspector will tell you the best plan of action to patch and correct the roof openings.
Areas of sagging in the roof are an issue that needs to be taken seriously. Roof sagging and structure issues usually result from exposure to heavy amounts of rain and snow, especially if there is an inadequate gutter and drainage system. Sagging could also signify a larger, serious issue requiring more costly repairs: weakness in the structure. In this case, the foundation could be shifting, sinking, or settling, which can lead to a collapse when the problem goes unfixed.
