The roof is a major part of your home’s infrastructure, and it factors heavily in how the home will survive a major storm or how hot it may become during the warmer seasons. This only reinforces how important it is to carefully consider whether it should simply be repaired or if it needs to be replaced entirely.
Damage to the roof can prove quite costly. Gaps or water leaks can cause a host of problems. If you’re noticing buckled shingles, it’s an indicator of potential trouble. It’s a good idea to try and have the roof inspected during the spring and fall season to detect any issues. Though you’ll likely need to pay for the roof inspection, the cost is much smaller compared to what you would need to spend for a repair. A second opinion can make a massive difference and potentially save you thousands of dollars.
When dealing with a roof inspector, make sure to find out how long the existing roof will last. The individual should also be able to point out noticeable signs of deterioration as well as tell you if there is a strong odd for leaks. Are the repairs going to match the current roof? Some repairs can’t be seen by the naked eye, but visible repairs may prove tricky in matching because of weathering. If you intend to sell the home soon, make this a top consideration.
Always do your homework when it comes to making sure the roof inspector is licensed and insured. Don’t be afraid to ask about guarantees and feel free to get a second opinion if you need to.
