As we enter spring in the Northern Front Range of Colorado, it’s important to remember that your roof needs a routine inspection. Each season brings its unique challenges to the integrity of a building’s roof. Whether being pelted by a hailstorm, baked by the sun, or withstanding the weight of heavy snowfall, your roof is your first line of defense against the elements!
A thorough inspection can reveal any damage that has occurred throughout the previous season or slowly over a longer period. Small complications can quickly turn into an expensive repair, so it’s wise to have your roof inspected every year. This ensures a longer life for the structure of your roof!
A simple way to get an idea of your roof’s external condition is to walk the perimeter of the structure and look for any signs of damage to the shingles, gutters, flashing, and fascia of the roof. Take note of any irregularities and schedule a professional roofing inspection to get a trained set of eyes on the condition of both the interior and exterior of the roof. The eye test just a starting point—only a professional inspection will reveal what could be going on in the roof!
Many factors can lead to wear and tear on your roofing structure, and the easiest one to avoid is neglect! Preventative maintenance is the key to ensuring the longest life for your roof and overall structure.
