Roof inspections are crucial in ensuring there aren’t any possible hazards and damage that need to be repaired. It is recommended to have the roof inspected bi-annually. Inspect before monsoon season and after. If any debris or wind caused damage during the storm, you can get it repaired before further issues occur. One minor hole can lead to thousands and thousands of dollars if not taken care of right away.
Inspect the shingles bi-annually. See if you notice any missing, damaged, curled, or lifted shingles. Any damaged or missing shingles should be replaced right away to avoid further roof damage.
Trim the trees that are close to your roof. By trimming the trees, you avoid leaves from getting trapped on the roof and branches falling. The leaves being trapped can cause moisture to build and weaken the structure. Branches falling onto the roof can cause damage like holes and weaken the structure.
