Do you remember the last time you had your home’s roof inspected? If it’s been much longer than you can remember, this is something that you’ll want to add to your calendar. Although scheduling a roof inspection can feel like a big pain in the you-know-where, doing so can save you a lot of time, aggravation, and money in the long run.
Why are roof inspections important in SWFL? Because gale force, hurricane force, and tropical storm force winds can do a number on your roofing system—and if the materials atop your home have been damaged during a recent weather event, addressing the problem right away can prevent the damage from getting worse.
Why inspections are worthwhile
The first thing you should know about SWFL roof inspections is that they shouldn’t cost you a dime. Reputable, licensed roofing contractors provide this service at no cost to their clients. If they determine your roof is in good condition, they’ll let you know. On the other hand, if they discover that there are one or more problems that need to be addressed, they’ll provide you with detailed information about what needs to be repaired and why.
If repairs are needed, they’ll also provide you with a written estimate that includes a full breakdown of labor and materials costs. They’ll also be able to tell you how quickly the repair can be scheduled and how long the job will take to complete.
Remember, roofs can be damaged by a variety of things, including hail storms, wind, flying debris, and in some cases, the sun. Professional roof inspections can help ensure that small problems don’t turn into larger ones.
How often you should have this done
Most experts suggest homeowners have their roofs inspected in the spring, summer, and after every major weather event. If you just had your semi-annual roof inspection done 2 weeks ago but a major storm system is going to make landfall tomorrow- you’ll want to contact your roofing contractor as soon as the storm breaks.
Lots of things in your orbit need routine TLC and maintenance, including your central AC, your car, and your pool. Your roofing system is no different.
