This is a process that we go through pretty much every single time that we arrive at a home or business that needs roofing help. The reason that we can't just stick with repairing what is obviously broken is that we need to find out what broke it! Many times what happens when companies or handymen don’t go through this process correctly is that the cracks that they had sealed will reopen. As we have said plenty of times the break is the result of the problem and it must be dealt with. It is not, however, the actual cause of the problem.
What Goes On In A Roofing Inspection?
We would love to try and lure you in with some fancy wordage, but we have to be honest first and foremost. This process is actually very simple. We go through the entire roof, and we check that everything is ok. There are instances where we will actually be able to spot a roofing issue because your ceilings are getting an excessive amount of moisture. Most of the times these types of problems are actually going to be originating in the roofing. So our inspections cover, roofs, ceilings, and other areas.
Once again we want to point this out! We understand that your roof may not be a place that you want to continually have to spend money on. That being said, we actually think that the best way to keep your roofing costs to a minimum is to have your roof inspected at least once or twice a year. That way you can rest assured that you are not facing any roofing problem that is going to cost you more to repair. If you are, we will usually be able to spot the issue before it gets any bigger and cost more money!
Included In The Cost
If you are already going to hire us to get a repair done or to do a significant overhaul of the entire area our regular inspections are going to be included in the overall cost. As we have mentioned, we are going to go through an inspection pretty much any time that people give us a call. It is just really important for us to be able to know what your roofing looks like. We are not going to be able to put more weight on your roof if we are not sure that it can hold it!
Why 6 to 12 Months?
We have recommended inspections every 6 to 12 months. The reason that we set that time frame is that we believe that if your roof got through the heavy rain and snow season, it is going to do well the rest of the year usually. Our inspection services do not take up an excessive amount of your time, and they are not overly expensive. It makes them really a great way to make sure that you can feel safe that things are ok. The numbers though don’t mean that if you don’t follow our guidelines your roof is going to fall over your head!
