There are many things Roanoke roofers don’t agree on, like the best brand of shingles. Whether hand nailing or nail guns are best installation method. The one thing we do agree on is that you should have an annual roofing inspection. It doesn’t matter what time of year you choose to have your roofing company inspect your roof but you should do it on a regular basis.

Why Annually?

Just like your car, your roof is made up of different parts. Those parts wear out at different rates and are impacted differently by outside elements. An annual roof inspection by your Roanoke roofer ensures that the parts of your roof prone to damage or deterioration aren’t allowing water into your home. When you have regular inspections, you can get any small issues repaired before they become big problems.

What Happens in a Roofing Inspection

There are three main elements to a roofing inspection performed by a quality roofer. First is a visual inspection from the ground of the roof, fasica, soffits, and gutters. Next, they should climb on your roof and inspect. If your Ronaoke roofer doesn’t climb on your roof, they haven’t done a good inspection and can’t truly know what the state of your roof is. When on the roof, a complete shingle inspection should be performed. In addition, the other elements like rubber boots around vents and flashing are inspected. The last part of a complete roofing inspection is an inspection inside the attic. This isn’t always possible or necessary but when it is, it can provide further information about the state of the roof.

Commercial Roofing Needs Regular Inspections Too

Commercial building roofs are different than residential ones. In fact, most Roanoke commercial roofing companies will recommend bi-annual inspections. Commercial roofing has foot traffic and many more elements that can disrupt the proper function of the roof’s surface. Any roof leak in  your business can send a negative message to your customers, damage inventory, and disrupt your employees. Proper maintenance with inspections twice a year prevent roof leaks.
