Most homeowners may notice the obvious roof problems, like damaged or missing shingles, without climbing onto the roof. However, other types of damage are not as noticeable, which is why it is important to get a professional opinion.
This is the main reason why it is necessary to contact a local Fort Collins roofing company and schedule periodical inspections for your roof. In ordinary weather conditions, specialists recommend seasonal inspections, 2 times a year.
If your roof it is relatively new, it shows no signs of leaks and has not been exposed to severe weather events since it was inspected last time, a visual inspection from the ground and a quick water drainage system checkup will do. But in all the other cases, a comprehensive inspection should be performed regularly by a professional roofer, who knows what to do and what to look for.
The roof inspection is the best opportunity to identify leaks, signs of unusual wear, damage caused by debris blown by the wind, problems of vegetation growth on the roof (moss, algae) and problems that may have arisen during the installation of shingles, or during subsequent repairs.
In this way, problems and vulnerabilities will be spotted in time, before they get worse, and you avoid paying large sums of money for repairs.
