Schedule Regular Professional Inspections and Maintenance
The best way to prevent unexpected roofing damage is to be proactive about your roof by identifying and addressing minor issues before they worsen. That’s why we recommend scheduling annual roofing inspections. Find a trustworthy and experienced roofing contractor to inspect your roof and look for problems. A good roofing contractor will spot vulnerable areas of your roof and perform the necessary repairs and maintenance to keep your roof in prime condition for many years.
Perform Simple Visual Inspections
You can complement the professional inspection process by performing simple visual inspections regularly. With a pair of binoculars, scan your roof for problems. You’re looking for missing shingles, damaged flashing and excessive shingle granule loss. Any of these issues can lead to a roof leak. If you spot any potential problems, call experienced roofers for their input.
