Have you scheduled your fall inspection yet? If not, now is a great time to do so before winter gets colder and the holidays occupy our minds. If you are planning on decorating the exterior of your home with Christmas lights and other decorations, an inspection can also be really crucial in ensuring your roof is ready to get dressed up!
Most roofs don’t need to be inspected more than once a year. But it’s still an easy task to put off when you’re not thinking about it. However, these inspections can be crucial in detecting small problems with your roof before they turn costly and expensive. When we can tackle roof repairs proactively, you can extend your roof’s lifespan at least a few years. And, if there’s nothing wrong with your roof? You can at least have peace of mind that your roof is still strong and reliable!
Another way to motivate yourself to schedule an inspection is by taking a look at your roof. If you haven’t maintained your roof in a while and it’s not brand new, it’s possible your roof may have some debris or even moss and algae on it. If that’s the case, you know it’s time to call the IBEX Roof team and schedule a roof cleaning. Again, this can help you prolong the life of your roof so that you won’t be due for a replacement any time soon! If you notice any missing or broken shingles, sagging in your roof, or anything that doesn’t look quite right, that is also a telltale sign to call your local roofer.
We always encourage homeowners to keep an eye on their roofs. If something looks off, give the IBEX Roof team a call! However, we NEVER recommend climbing your own roof to perform your own inspection. Our team of experts is trained to detect vulnerable areas of your roof that are hard to see with the untrained eye. Your roof is more than your shingles; if there is wood rot underneath, it’s possible for you to fall through with the wrong step. Additionally, our roof inspectors are properly insured and have the right safety equipment to perform a thorough evaluation of your roof.
