Years of exposure to the weather will eventually take a toll on your roof. By staying on top of yearly inspections, you can catch issues at their earliest stages and keep your roof in good condition for many years to come. Be sure to ask your roofer these essential questions during their inspection visit.
“Does My Roof Have Any Flaws or Defects?”
Normal wear and tear, impact damage and installation errors can compromise the structural integrity of your roof. This can lead to persistent leaks, cause moisture damage to interior finishes and shorten the overall life of your roof. After the scheduled inspection, the inspector will provide you with a detailed report with photos of any problem areas found. They will also answer any concerns you may have and advise you on needed repairs.
“Does My Attic or Roof Have Sufficient Ventilation?”
Good ventilation in the attic is crucial for roof maintenance. If your attic ventilation is not enough or nonexistent, moist, stale air from inside your home will not be able to escape. This does not only lead to the premature deterioration of your roof, but it also makes your living spaces hot and uncomfortable.
“How Much Life Is Left in My Roof?”
The service life of a roof varies depending on the type and quality of materials used. A standard asphalt shingle roof can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, whereas metal roofing is expected to last for 40 years or longer. There are other factors that directly influence a roof’s lifespan. How well it has been maintained over the years is one of these factors.
