A springtime roofing inspection can save you time and money when it comes to roofing repairs. Your roof has endured a lot throughout the winter, including bitter temperatures and rough weather. It's important to verify the integrity of all your roofing materials, especially before the spring rains arrive.
Without inspection, any problems your roof may have developed over the wintertime will go unnoticed, only to be exposed during the next storm. The last thing you want to encounter is a roof leak in the middle of heavy rain.
What’s in a Roof?
Your roof is composed of layers of different roofing materials. Your shingles are the visible outer layer of your roof, while roof decking lies below them. There may be other layers between your roof decking shingles depending on your particular roof construction. Other materials, like sheathing and flashing, help your roof maintain a flush surface that directs moisture away while providing a seal against the elements.
These layers and materials must all work together and compose the overall integrity of your roof. If any one of these materials is damaged, it can affect the others and allow further damage to occur.
What a Roofing Inspection Can Find
When a qualified roofer performs a detailed inspection on your roof, they’ll locate the presence of pinhole leaks that could otherwise become devastating sources of damage for the interior of your home. A roofing expert will inspect your shingles and determine how much useful life remains, while also ensuring your flashing and other roofing components are in good condition to withstand the spring rains and summer heat.
