Your roof is always changing. It is the most exposed structural component of your home. Every roof is continually in a state of flux, expanding or contracting with every heat wave or cold spell. It is vulnerable to wind gusts and rainstorms. With each hailstorm the integrity of your roof is altered. Changes caused by the weather go on incrementally throughout the year and the cumulative damages thereof are compounded until your roof is needing a repair or replacement. Without a trained eye it’s almost impossible to assess the true condition of your roof. You can’t know if it’s damaged or not without having it inspected by a residential roofing professional.
A Roof Inspection Can Prevent Serious Roof Damage
Serious damage can usually be prevented by having a routine roof inspection. The purpose of a roof inspection is to find conventional problems, assess the extent of damage, and gauge the remaining lifespan of your roof.
Most homeowners get their roof inspected when they buy their home or when they sell it. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the average person in the United States moves residences more than 11 times in his or her lifetime. Data shows that the average life expectancy for males and females in Texas is 80 years. This means that about every seven years we Texans are moving from one house to another. And if the average homeowner only gets their roof inspected when they buy and before they sell their home, this means that a roof goes without inspection or repair for seven years. Is it any wonder that the average roof in the Texas Panhandle lasts for only seven years.
Roof Inspections Can Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof
Having your roof inspected every one or two years can really extend the life expectancy of your roof. It gives you a chance to catch potential problems before they get worse. A well maintained shingled roof system can last up to 25 years. But you need a residential roof inspection program to catch the incremental damage and make the needed repairs as they occur, thereby extending the lifespan of your roof and avoiding the huge expense of an early roof replacement.
