Roofs are the most important part of our home as it protects us from direct heat from the sun and bad weather. Just like cars, the roof requires regular check up to ensure that any possible leak or damage can be addressed sooner. This practice can also make you save money because you can easily repair the damage while it’s still not that huge. Below are guides on how to inspect the roof if it needs replacement.
Check the interior of the roof. Check the parts where the roof is sagging, signs of water leaking or damage and dark spots.
The exterior of the roof must be inspected next. Focus on missing shingles, curling, blistering, and algae growth. Scanned the roof for cracked or loose material.
The material of the roof should also be considered. Cedar roof needs to be replaced every 20 years. Concrete roofs don’t need to be replaced.
Always provide a simple solution for any problem encountered for the roof first.
