The Importance of Annual Roof Inspections

Having your roof inspected by a professional roofing company like Brian Elder Roofing is an essential step in any roof-related project or concern and lets you know whether your roof is in good condition or if you will need to budget for roof repairs or replacement. You literally need a roof over your head, and after all the storms the mid-south has suffered lately, now is the perfect time for a roof inspection. Keep in mind that if you get your roof inspected now, it could save you money in the long run. It is also always best to catch problems before they escalate. 

What to Expect at a Roof Inspection 

At Brian Elder Roofing, during our annual roof inspections, we do a thorough examination and assessment of the roof’s condition. We check for any missing, cracked, curled, or loose shingles and possible damage to your roof. If we find any of the issues listed, our inspector will put together a report with the scope and budget of the project and share his recommendations with you. Rest assured, though, we do our absolute best to give you the fairest price possible if you do, in fact, need roof repair or replacement.  

When Should You Have Your Roof Inspected? 

For regular maintenance, it is best that you schedule a yearly inspection. However, if you notice any discoloration on your ceiling, you should call us promptly, as this could indicate a water leak originating from your roof. It is also a good idea to contact us after extreme weather, such as high winds or hail to ensure no shingles were detached. 

You may also want to have your roof inspected if you plan on selling your home or you are buying a house. This benefits both the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction by providing peace of mind during and after the sale. In addition, if the home has roof issues, you can determine whether the buyer or seller will make the repairs in your contract. 

Can I Do My Own Roof Inspection? 

Unfortunately, it is not a good idea to try and inspect the roof yourself. One reason is that it can be dangerous. At Brian Elder Roofing, we are licensed, certified, and insured and have the safety equipment and proper tools to inspect your roof thoroughly. We are also used to walking on sloped roofs, and someone that does not do this daily could easily lose their footing. Another reason you should call a professional is that you may need help knowing what to look for and may miss the early signs of shingle and roof damage. At Brian Elder Roofing, we have over a decade of experience and expertise in spotting potential roof issues such as water infiltration, and we know how to properly lift and check the shingles without causing damage.
