Homeowners often overlook roofs when they are developing a home maintenance plan since this part of the house tends to be less noticeable than the landscaping. However, the roof on your house plays a vital role in your life every day by keeping the rain out and regulating the temperature inside.
Typically, your roof should be inspected yearly, although your roofing professional may recommend a different schedule depending on the age and type of roof that is placed on your house. However, you should also do your part by checking your house regularly for these signs that your roof needs an inspection.
1. THE ROOF IS GETTING OLDER
2. THE SHINGLES ARE CURLING
3. THERE ARE SHINGLES MISSING
4. THE ROOF FEELS DIFFERENT
5. THERE IS SUNSHINE COMING THROUGH THE ATTIC
6. A RECENT STORM HAPPENED
7. GRANULES ARE SHOWING UP EVERYWHERE
8. A PEST PROBLEM HAS DEVELOPED
Sometimes, the first sign a homeowner notices of a roof problem is a rodent invasion in the attic. This can happen when a hole forms in the roof or the flashing has come up around the roof vents. Repairing these areas on the roof can often help you deal with the pest issue as well.
Proper roof care protects your home from serious problems, such as water damage, that can add up to costly repairs. At American Craftsmen of North Carolina, we always promote the importance of being proactive with protecting your property, so contact us for your roofing inspection today.
