If you suspect your roof might need some minor repairs, it’s very important that your roofing contractor identifies and corrects any problems well before winter’s arrival. Roofing Inspection is an important part of an ongoing roof maintence and should not be taken for granted.
The Importance of Fall Roofing Inspections
Minor roofing problems can easily lead to major issues when your roof is forced to deal with snow, ice, sleet and rain and strong winds. These elements put a great deal of pressure on your roof as well as bring on high levels of moisture.
What also happens is that roofing problems can lead to home energy insufficiencies which can send your utility bills skyrocketing in the wintertime.
Snow is extremely heavy, and after a major snowfall, your roof could be forced to support dozens of extra pounds in weight. If your roof is suffering from even minor weaknesses or structural problems, the weight of that snow could trigger a collapse that will cost a lot more to fix than you’d have paid to fix the problem prior to winter’s onset.
If your roof is structurally sound but has minor gaps and leaks, rain and melting snow and ice can cause big problems. You risk experiencing not only indoor leaks, but also damage to the wooden beams that support your roof. Ultimately, this could weaken your roof and create potentially dangerous instability.
Gaps and leaks in your roof also make it harder for your home to retain heat, and can cause a drastic spike in winter heating costs. It’s far more cost-effective to invest in some preventive roof maintenance than it is to deal with the potential problems that result from negligence.
