We like to catch problems before they get worse, and apart from the most obvious signs that your roof is damaged, some damage may not be visible and could be brewing beneath your shingles in areas that are hard to see or reach. That’s why we highly recommend roof inspections be done at least once a year to prevent serious issues down the road. We provide free inspections to homeowners and business owners alike, and our inspections are detailed and thorough to determine whether repairs are needed right away or should be made in the future.

Water damage can be caused by a number of issues, including water not draining properly due to clogged gutters, improperly installed or damaged flashing and storms that blow shingles off leaving room for water to seep in.
Mold growing around the chimney and on attic insulation are signs of excessive water damage. During the interior inspection, a roofing professional will pay special attention to these areas.
This can be missing or loose shingles as well as rotting or algae growth on the shingles.
If your gutters contain an excessive amount of loose shingle granules, this is a sign that your shingles are being worn away. Granules give your shingles added weight and protect them from ultraviolet rays.
Metal roofs expand and contract, depending on the weather. This can cause screws to loosen and seams to separate. If this problem isn’t taken care of right away, the roof’s underlying structure might be damaged by condensation and the buildup of water.
Flashing that has begun to pull apart and has created a gap can allow water to seep underneath your metal roof. It can also lead to corrosion on the underside of the panels.
However, even if there are no signs that you need to have your roof repaired or replaced, a more thorough inspection may reveal damage that is not apparent to the untrained eye. So, scheduling an annual roof inspection is always a smart idea. Call today to get your free roof inspection today.
