YOUR ROOF TAKES CARE OF YOU – RETURN THE FAVOR WITH A YEARLY ROOF INSPECTION THAT WILL STOP MOISTURE DAMAGE AND HEAD OFF EXPENSIVE REPAIRS 

While we may just be getting used to fall weather, we all know what is just around the corner – WINTER! Your home’s roof inspection is the most important preventative maintenance jobs that needs to take place before the first snowflakes fly. We recommend you look up and walk around your home, noting any potential problems.

OUTSIDE SIGNS OF TROUBLE:

Roof Inspection– Cracked caulk or rust spots on flashing

– Shingles that are bucking, curling, or blistering

– Missing or broken shingles

– Cracked and worn rubber boots around vent pipes

– Missing Ventilation system — good ventilation guarantees your roof will last longer and prevents ice dams

– Missing or damaged chimney cap — okay, it’s technically not part of your roof, but since you’re looking anyway it is worth checking

– Masses of moss and lichen, which could signal the roof is decaying underneath

– Staining, which can signal accumulation of dirt, defective shingles, mold, mildew, and algae

INTERIOR SIGNS OF TROUBLE:  

– Dark areas on ceilings

– Peeling paint on the underside of roof overhangs

– Damp spots alongside fireplaces

– Water stains on pipes venting the water heater and furnace
