Oftentimes, the very thing that is holding a house together is the last thing people pay attention to. When it comes to home maintenance, your roof is something that should never be overlooked. Inspecting your roof twice a year can help you diagnose many different problems before they become costly and intricate, or you suddenly have a gaping hole in your ceiling. Checking for signs of damage during a roof inspection is simple. If you’re wondering what you should look out for during your inspection, keep reading.
Signs You Need a New Roof Installation
Before your roof inspection begins, it is important to determine exactly how old your roof is. If your roof was installed 15 plus years ago, then a new roof installation is on your horizon. However, if your roof still has a few years left before replacement, then there are several other signs of damage you should look out for. Take a look at your shingles and check for any that are cracked, damaged, or are not lying flat. Be sure to check your gutters for any shingle granules, as these are sure signs that your roof is on its way out. Next, check the flashing around your chimney, skylights, and vents for signs of damage. These areas are prone to leaks due to weather conditions. For the next step in your inspection, take a few steps back to get a better view of your roof as a whole. If you notice black spots, moss, or areas of your roof that are sinking in, then it’s likely time for a replacement.
