Homeowners and business owners alike can often times put getting a roof inspection on the backburner. There are a few instances in which you should really prioritize getting your roof inspected, and having a big storm roll through is one of them. There are numerous reasons behind why you should get your roof inspected following a storm, as all of them are just as important. In this blog, we will be sharing some of the top reasons why you should be giving Absolute Home Solutions a call following a storm. Being proactive with the functionality and health of your roof can really make the difference in saving money down the line!
Possible Roof Leaks
One of the main reasons why it’s important to get your roof inspected after a storm is to check for any possible leaks. Storms can cause damage to your roof that may not be easily visible, such as loose or missing shingles. If left unchecked, these small damages can lead to bigger problems down the line, including water leaks in your home or business. By getting a professional roof inspection after a storm, you can catch and address any potential leaks before they become major issues. It’s important to look years into the future to ensure that you don’t place burdens on yourself later when water may start leaking into your home or business.
Potential Mold and Mildew On Roof
Another reason to prioritize a post-storm roof inspection is to check for any potential mold or mildew growth on your roof. Storms can cause moisture to seep into your roof, creating the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. If left unchecked, this can not only cause damage to your roof, but also pose health risks for you and your family. Exposure to mold can cause some long term health issues including coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. A roof inspection can identify any areas of concern and address them before they become a bigger problem.
Voided Manufacturer Warranties
Many roofing manufacturers have warranties that cover damage caused by storms. However, in order for this warranty to be valid, the homeowner must provide evidence of regular roof inspections and maintenance. By neglecting to get a post-storm inspection, you are risking voiding your manufacturer’s warranty and potentially having to pay out-of-pocket for any necessary repairs in the future.
