Roof Inspection Tips and FAQ

The Importance of a Thorough Roof Inspection


Whether you need your roof for protecting your business or for watching over your family, the quality of your roof is correlated to the quality of your business or home. It’s important to take the necessary steps needed to ensure the quality of your roof even after it is installed. Preventative maintenance and proper inspections can help, and they can even save you money in the long run.


Causes of Roof Damage


One of the most common sources of roof damage is storms. Being in mid-Missouri, we all know how violent storms can get around here. Roof damage from storms is often caused by intense winds, hail, fallen trees, snow, sleet, ice and aggressive rain.


The flashing on your roof is a thin, metal sheet, strip, angle or fitting that covers a seam or transition point in your roof, and it’s very susceptible to leaking because of how easily it can be damaged or corroded.


Your roof can also experience problems if it was poorly installed. This highlights the importance of properly researching contractors and picking an experienced team of roofers.


Poor roof and attic ventilation can also lead to roof issues. Proper ventilation will regulate temperature and moisture levels in your attic; and if this isn’t routinely checked, heat and moisture can accumulate. This can cause roof damage along with mold and mildew issues.


Small animals, insects and birds can also cause damage to your roof.


Finally, poor preventative maintenance can lead to a laundry list of problems. Once again, your roof needs proper upkeep and inspections to ensure that major structural damages don’t take place. This can prolong the life of your roof!
