Why Professional Roof Inspections are a Good Idea



The roof on your home in Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, or Tacoma works hard to protect you and your home. And when homeowners think of roof inspections, they usually leave that to when they buy or sell a home. However, professional roof inspections are one of the best ways to make sure your roof keeps the weather outside. A professional roof inspection helps you manage the necessary maintenance and increases the life of your roof. That’s why we recommend you have a professional roof inspection every three to five years, or after any major storm event.


Let’s talk more about why professional roof inspections are important and how they benefit you.


Routine Maintenance


You know by now you should inspect your roof twice a year. Late fall and early spring are a good time.

And if you find that you need repairs that are beyond your DIY abilities, it’s time to call in the professionals. We will complete an inspection and recommend any necessary repairs, which will help avoid costly repairs and helps to extend the life of your roof.


Warranty Repairs


Roofs leak for many reasons, but if your roof is newer (5-10 years old), some of these might be covered under your warranty. If you enlist the help of a professional, they can help you determine whether to file a claim under the warranty.


After a Storm


Damage to your roof after a storm can be stressful. If you experienced a storm with high winds that blew down trees or if large hail fell, you should have a professional inspect your roof.


High winds and rain can weaken shingles, and even tear them away from your roof. So, it’s a good idea to have professional help after a storm.


If You Find a Leak


If you notice a leak, it’s time to get the professionals involved. We will pinpoint the leak from the exterior and determine if any interior damage has been done.


What most homeowners don’t realize is that the damage to a home’s attic space can be difficult to find and repair. By getting a professional involved, we can thoroughly inspect your attic and recommend the right repairs before the damage gets worse.


Peace of Mind


Roof repairs can be a lot of work, but you will feel so much better after having a thorough roof inspection. Understanding what (if anything) is wrong with your roof will help you come up with a plan to make the necessary repairs.


Let the Professionals do the Work


A comprehensive roof inspection can’t be done from the ground and climbing on your roof can be dangerous, and roofers know exactly how to maneuver around a roof safely. If you are like most homeowners, you dread walking along your roof while trying to find damage. When you hire a professional, you remove danger from the equation and will only benefit from an in-depth inspection.
