Both residential and commercial roofing systems need regular inspections to ensure they are damage-free. Just because a roof appears to be in good condition, it could still be harboring underlying issues. Some types of roofing damage are not visible to the untrained eye, which is why professional roof inspections are so critical.
In this post, A1 Siding and Roofing discusses the financial benefits of having your roof regularly inspected.
Mold Growth Prevention
Without regular inspections and maintenance, your roof may sustain moisture damage that goes unchecked. This water infiltration can also encourage toxic mold growth inside your attic, which presents a health hazard for you and your family. With regular roof inspections, you can easily weed out and repair the causes of water infiltration, reducing the risk of mold growth.
In the event your roofing system sustains significant damage, you can recoup whatever you spent on repairs by filing a claim with your homeowner’s insurance provider. However, most insurance companies will only compensate you for the cost of repairs if the damage wasn’t caused by the homeowner’s negligence, such as failing to keep up with your roof inspections and repairs. With that in mind, it’s best to hire a residential roofing professional to regularly inspect and repair your roof to help you avoid any complications with your insurance provider.
Almost every part of your home is vulnerable to water damage due to leaks, including your roof’s sheathing and everything below that. Once the moisture infiltration damages these wooden structures below the roof, a complete replacement will be necessary to bring your roof back to proper form. Fortunately, roof inspections allow you to identify small issues before they become major problems, making structural damage completely avoidable with the right precautions.
