Your roof is responsible for protecting your home from the snow, hail, wind and rain. It keeps moisture out of your home, protects structural components and contributes to energy efficiency too. Small problems in your roof can lead to expensive damage. That is why it’s important to have your roof inspected and maintained periodically.
Matt’s Roofing Ltd. in Edmonton shares what you can learn in a roof inspection:
Leaks or potential leaks.
A leak in the roof is bad. Really bad. Sometimes you can have a small roof leak happening for months before you see any interior damage. By then you’ll have an extensive problem on your hands. Roof inspections can find those little leaks or any problem areas that might become a leak. This will ensure no moisture is getting into your attic, wreaking havoc on your framing and insulation until finally damaging the ceiling and drywall.
Catching a leak early, even before it starts, can save you a lot of money in the long run. Water damage is difficult and costly to deal with.
It’s difficult to see if a bad storm or years of wear and tear have damaged the roof when you’re standing on the ground. A professional roofer will be able to get safely on the roof to evaluate the condition of your shingles and any potential damage that may have occurred after a weather event.
They will look for missing or damaged shingles, detaching or damaged flashing and other components of your roofing system. Weather events like hail, wind, snow, heavy rain and ice dams can all cause problems. Learn more about ice dams.
Determine a remedy.
Roof repair can often be enough to remedy a damaged area of the roof. Matt’s Roofing will give your roof a thorough inspection and give you recommendations for roof repair. In some cases, the damage might be too extensive and your might need a full roof replacement. If your roof is leaking because it has aged or it’s inadequate, a roof replacement is often the best course of action to ensure your home is protected.
