The roof of your home is important to keep you, your family, and belongings safe. To get the longest life from your roofing system, it is important to have it inspected yearly. An inspection will help locate problems due to moisture, which could lead to expensive roofing repairs. The yearly maintenance job of an inspection is overlooked by homeowners until they are in a situation in which they are facing costly roof problems.

By adding a yearly inspection to your calendar, you can avoid being a homeowner who finds themselves facing expensive roofing repairs. You have the option of inspecting the roof yourself or calling in the help of a roofing contractor.

There are ways you can inspect your own roof without climbing a ladder. We’re pointing out some of the more obvious signs around your home that can point you to potential issues with your roof. A couple of things that you could look for are caulking that has cracked, as well as any shingles that may appears as though they have buckled, blistered, curled, or be broken. If you find grit buildup from asphalt roofing tiles in or near the gutters, you need to have a professional involved immediately. This could be a sign that your roof is nearing the end of its life cycle and needs replacing before other issues arise.

Simple Roofing Repairs

When inspecting your roof, here are a few things you can look for:

  • Damaged or Missing Shingles – If you find shingles that are damaged or missing, these should be replaced right away.
  • Popped Up Nails – If you find nails that have come up, you should hammer them back into place.
  • Seals Around the Flashing – If you find that the caulking around attic vents, chimneys, skylights, and the flashing is missing or peeling, you will want to re-caulk those areas immediately to prevent leaks.

Early Signs of Roof Leaks

It is very important that you check for the early signs of roof leaks. Some of these include:

  • Dark spots on the ceilings
  • Peeling paint and wallpaper
  • Water stains on pipes and gutters
  • Damp areas along your fireplace

If you notice any serious signs of roofing leaks, you need to arrange a professional roof inspection to prevent further damage to your home.

When to Call the Professionals

If you notice signs of leaks or other damages, it’s always best to call in the professionals. Most people aren’t comfortable climbing on top of the roof, and don’t have the skills required to perform proper repairs. Hiring a professional roofing contractor is always your best bet to ensure your safety.

When is Roof Replacement Needed

If the time has come to have your roof replaced, be sure to get more than one quote. Make sure the company you choose is fully bonded, licensed and insured. It’s always a good idea to ask friends and family for recommendations and follow up on any references you are given.
