The Importance of a Professional Roof Inspection

In this DIY world we're living in, many people choose to diagnose home-related issues themselves. If you don't physically see any damage to your roof and it's not leaking, then it's fine right? Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Roofing issues left untouched can often lead to larger, more costly issues. Keep reading to learn more from Above & Beyond Roofing about the importance of hiring a professional to inspect your roof.

Looking for Problem Areas 

A professional roofer at the Lake of the Ozarks will physically climb onto your roof to look for problem areas. While you may be capable of climbing up there as well, for safety reasons you're better off hiring a professional. Many homeowners are unaware of how to properly walk on a roof and can end up damaging it. In addition, the professional will know exactly what to look for and might be able to catch something that your untrained eye would have overlooked. The majority of leaks are difficult for the average homeowner to find, and left unaddressed can lead to water damage not just to your roof, but possibly even other areas of your home.

Repairs vs. Re-roofing 

While the primary purpose of a roof inspection is to look for possible damage or problem areas, inspections are also important to estimate the lifespan of your roof. If you're not the original owner of the house and/or you didn't recently re-roof your home, chances are you're not sure how old your roof is or how well it was maintained. A professional inspection will not only help you identify roofing issues, but can also offer an idea of how much life is left in your roof. This assessment will help you choose whether repairs or a re-roof are your best option. 

Buying and Selling Homes

For homeowners looking to sell their home in the near future, an updated inspection certificate can be a benefit. Buyers are going to want to know that the roof is in good condition and won't need replaced shortly after they've made such a big investment in a home. It's important that they buyer knows their investment is protected by a roof in good condition, and a roof with little to no issues may even help the homeowner earn a discount on their homeowners insurance policy.
