Check the Roof Every Year

You certainly know that having a good roof will ensure you plenty of comfort for you and your family. There are different things that can lead to roof damage, and one of the factors is the time and the lifespan of the roof.

rooferEach material has its qualities, and when you have a certain type of roof, you need to check it for damage at least once a year. It’s easy to do it, and it will take you less than an hour. If you don’t feel up to this task, you can call a professional to do it for you.

We’ve made a short list with the steps you can take to make sure you have a proper roof.

Home Roof Inspection

You need to check your roof at least twice a year, especially when the seasons change. You can call a roof contractor to inspect the roof, and, in exchange, you will receive an official certificate about the condition of the roof. That written piece of paper will contain every details you need to know about potential damage, lifespan or any other detail that might interest you.

You will also receive a list with the needed materials for the repairs, if there are any that need to be done.

The Gutters

This is something that you can do in the course of a day. It will take you only a few hours to complete this task and you will also save some money.

All you will need is a ladder and the willingness to do it. To reach the gutters, you need to step high on the ladder until those are within easy reach. Cleaning the gutters will make sure that there are no debris gathered there and the water can freely pass.

The gutters are the first barrier for the water – they make sure that the water doesn’t fall directly on your walls, wetting them or damaging them, also protecting the foundation of the house.

The Trees      

If you have any trees around the house, it’s better if you can cut the branches. If the branches are big enough to touch the roof, if there is a storm, they can damage it. Cutting the bigger branches will prevent the roof from taking any damage. The weather damage is enough for the roof, so it doesn’t have to stand also the damage made from a bigger branch or branches. Trimming them is the easiest solution, without cutting the whole tree.

ROOFING (1)The Attic

This is another portion that you have to check. The attic is a place that you usually don’t use, so make sure it is dry and with no water spots. If the roof took any damage from a storm or simply as a result of the passing time, the attic will show you those things.

Make sure you follow closely the isolation and see if there is any breaking point where water can get in. Also, if you have windows or illuminators installed in the attic, make sure that there is no water damage around them.

If you see water anywhere or if there are water stains or mold, you need to check the roof to see where the problem is.

A Roofing Contractor

Once you have finished with the visual inspection on the outside, and with the attic inspection on the inside, it’s time to call for a roofing contractor, especially if you have discovered some problems.

This is different from the home roof Roof setupinspection, as these are the professionals who will actually make the repairs. When you call them, make sure you have the written document from the home roof inspectors, and you also have a list with the rest of the problems that you have discovered by yourself.

The roofing contractor will give you a price estimation and you will have to decide which one to hire – that’s why it’s best to call at least 3 different roofing contractors to evaluate the site.
