Your roof is one of the most important components of a home or business property. It plays a vital role in protecting your property from the elements, specifically preventing water damage and structural issues. In order for it to do its job successfully, it needs to be maintained and replaced when its service life has expired.
3 Things You Have to Know About Your Roof
1. What is the condition of your roof?
In order to make sure your roof is up to the task of protecting your property, you should have it inspected annually by a certified Roofing Inspector. Even roofs that are only a few years old should be inspected, as a just one singular extreme weather event can compromise it. Early diagnosis and repair of smaller (less costly) issues can help prevent significant and costly damage in the future.
The Roofing Inspector will evaluate the following items:
Signs of wear and tear
Leaves, dirt, and debris, especially in gutters
Cracked roof tiles or shingles
Leaks around skylights and chimneys
Punctures or holes in the roof
Soft or ballooned areas
Any other components/function or structure associate to your particular roof type
2. What repairs (if any) need to be done?
Once the Inspector has finished their multi-point inspection, you'll be provided a comprehensive analysis of the overall integrity of your roofing system. We'll review the service life remaining, any specific areas of concern and recommendations on course of action to ensure your roof is doing it's job. Often times, a roof doesn't need replacing, but may require servicing / repair to prevent future damage or extend it's service life.
3. What options do I have and what is the cost?
Once we've given you our evaluation, we'll discuss your priorities as the property owner and offer you a solution that's tailored to your needs and budget. For example, if you plan on keeping the property for the next 25-years, would an extended service life roof make better sense than a product that may have to be replaced before you sell the property?
Taking a collaborative approach, we'll walk you through available options, timing and cost.
Important note: In most circumstances, roofing damage caused by weather events is covered by your insurance company. Unfortunately for some customers, they wait until it's too late to take action. If a claim is not filed within a certain time frame, your insurance company can deny coverage. This leaves the property owner to absorb the full cost of repairing or replacing their roof. With over a decade of experience, we'll work diligently to try to get your roof approved for replacement.
