If we have an honest conversation about roof damage and inspection, it is reasonable to assume that roof damage should not be assessed by the average homeowner. There are enough components to a roof, and the damage can be so subtle, that someone really needs to know what they are looking at. Additionally, how safe and how comfortable is the average home owner with climbing on top of the roof? Taking pride in your home and investing your time to make repairs is a good thing, but some jobs should be left to the professionals.
Different components of your roof
Homeowners should understand that your roof consists of several components, much more than the shingles you see when you drive up. Your roof is a system of parts working together to protect the home. It is not just wind and rain that can damage your roof. Excessive heat from the sun, animals such as birds, mice, bats and squirrels can cause serious damage to your roof. A 5 minute hail storm may hit your roof while you are away from home and you may never even know it occurred, but a professional roofing contractor knows what to look for and can spot the damage. Roofing experts know where damage from certain animals is likely to occur, and knows what to look for. A trustworthy contractor can look at your trusses and insulation to spot leaks. Most importantly, a reliable and efficient contractor will keep detailed documentation in the form of estimates and work orders that will be very valuable if you ever need to file a claim for storm damage or make a claim for material warranty.
In addition to properly assessing the damage, a trusted roofing contractor can recommend the right materials for the job, or replacement materials. The technology for roofing materials changes all the time and a reputable contractor stays abroad of the latest available information. Your contractor will save you hundreds even thousands of dollars by keeping your roof in top shape so that it will last as long as its designated life span.
