The roof is one of the most important aspects of a structure. The roof protects you and your family from harsh weather and other external factors. Being the highest part of your North Florida home, the roof suffers the brunt of high winds and storms. The roof needs regular maintenance to extend its lifespan and effectively keep you safe and dry.
The problem is most homeowners take the roof over their heads for granted, seldom thinking about it until leaks start showing up. Hiring a professional roofer to inspect your roof on a regular basis helps keep your roof in good shape and avoid such problems. It can also help your roof last up to twice as long as it would without instructions. Here are more benefits of having a regular roof inspection.
Catch Issues While They’re Small
In most cases, unless in the event of a major storm, roof problems don’t develop overnight. They start small and progress to full-blown disasters. An inspection by someone familiar with early warning signs can correct problems before they go too far. Having a professional roofer conduct regular inspections will help you ensure potential mistakes are found before they become a huge issue. In fact, we have seen roofs last twice as long simply by being inspected every other year, fixing any issues along the way.
Storms and high winds can cause damage to your roof, leading to repairs, replacement, and lots of insurance claims. Even if your roof doesn’t seem to have any visible damage, it should be inspected immediately after a heavy storm. Our Insurance Claim Coordinator, John Demmer, will help you navigate through your insurance claim and answer any questions you may have,
Bad Repair Job
Florida weather can be unpredictable, to say the least. High winds, hail, and other weather conditions can lead to storm damage and lead to repair needs. If repairs weren’t done properly, you are likely to experience even more problems down the line. This can be particularly frustrating if the roofer was a storm chaser. Regular roof inspections will catch a bad repair job before it morphs into a huge issue and cost you hundreds of dollars to fix.
