Why Getting a Roof Inspection is Important

You likely don't think about your roof often, but when was the last time you had your roof inspected by a professional? Getting your roof inspected can help to prolong the life of your roof. Not sure why a roof inspection is important? Read on to find out six reasons you could benefit from a roof inspection from our Lake of the Ozarks Roofing Company

#1 To Prevent Expensive Roof Repairs or Replacement 

Without regular inspections, minor wear and tear can evolve into major roofing problems. By the time roof damage becomes clearly evident, there's likely already major damage done to the roof, your home's structure, and potentially the interior of your home as a result of leaks. An inspection will be able to address minor repair issues before they turn into expensive roof repairs or even the need for a roof replacement.

#2 To Assess Storm Damage and Aid in Insurance Claims

High winds, hail, and other severe weather events can cause roof damage that may lead to the need for filing an insurance claim. After a storm, it's important that you have your roof inspected as soon as possible to prevent further damage due to water infiltration. Not only can a roof inspection asses the extent of the storm damage and provide you with an estimate for your insurance claim, but regular inspections prior to storm season can significantly reduce storm damage potential. A roof that's in tip-top shape will hold up better during a weather event than one that has not been maintained.

#3 To Have Peace of Mind

Between family life and work, you have enough to worry about. Don't add to that list by neglecting your roof. Weathering from wind, rain, sun, heat, snow, frost, hail, debris and critters can cause all kinds of wear and tear on your roof. Keeping an eye on the condition of your roof through regular roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks will save you money and give you peace of mind.

#4 To Perform a Leak Assessment

Leaks are a common roofing problem that often go undetected. A leak is just a symptom of a problem that has possibly been building for sometime, and the leak often occurs far from the initial problem site due to the nature of how water travels. Undetected moisture infiltration can create unseen deterioration such as rotting wood, mold, wet insulation or corrosion. The only way to find these leaks before they create those issues is through regular roof inspections.

#5 To Maintain Your Warranty 

If your roof is under any type of warranty, regular maintenance and inspections are likely required to keep that warranty. Regular roof inspections from a roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks will help you keep on top of the maintenance so that you don't accidentally void your warranty.

#6 To Address Water and/or Vegetation Damage 

Standing water on your roof increases the likelihood of leaks and moisture infiltration. Regular roof inspections can detect if your roof is experiencing drainage issues. Leaves, trash, and other debris often clog or obstruct roof drains. Poor drainage also accelerates the deterioration of roofing materials, leading to a shorter life span. In addition to water, vegetation growth on your roof can penetrate through the roof membrane and create leakage. Regular inspections can address these issues as well.
