This winter certainly has not been kind to us! Between the record breaking amounts of snow and the high winds, you are probably sick and tired of winter already. The problem is, you are not alone, your house is likely sick of this weather too, namely your roof. If you think you feel as if you take a beating every time you step outside, imagine how your roof feels. This fact alone is enough of a reason to schedule a roof inspection as soon as the weather breaks and spring is peaking its head around the corner.
Why Get an Inspection?
You might be wondering why get an inspection, especially if you do not have a reason to believe that nothing is wrong. The answer is simple. If you are a proactive type of person and like to take care of small problems, rather than waiting for them to become full blown issues, there is your answer. Even if you think that a missing shingle or two is no big deal, your inspection will likely tell you otherwise.
Spring Means Rain
Just when we get through the hum drum weather of the winter, we are usually blasted with a lot of spring rain. Now thinking about those few loose shingles or small gaps, you might panic. As the spring rains get into the wood decking, you could end up with serious issues that include:
- Mold or mildew growth
- Leaking attics
- Water damage throughout the house
- Ceiling collapse
What this means is that you should be making plans now to have a roof inspection completed in the early part of the spring. If any small issues are found and repaired, you could save yourself thousands of dollars of repairs as well as the headache of dealing with damages around your home. Water can be very damaging to your home and your health, in the event of mold or mildew growth. Don’t make the mistake of letting one small problem with your roof turn into a nightmare down the road.
