When You Need a Roofing Contractor
If you don’t want to have a new roof installed every couple of years, you should inspect your current one on a regular basis. This should be done every spring and fall and after any major storms or high winds. But when do you need to bring in a roofing contractor, you may ask? You can hire one to do the inspection or do it yourself following the guidelines listed below and hire one when you find a problem.
First, you need to check the roof from the inside. Go to the attic and look there if the roofing deck is sagging, for light coming through, as well as leaks and dark spots.
When you complete the interior inspection, go outside and look for missing shingles, extra moist or mold, or rot. Also, see if there is loose material around the vents, pipes, and chimney. Check if the downspouts and gutters are secured well and if the drains are clean and allow the rainwater to exit them freely.
