Semi-annual roof inspections and preventative maintenance on your homes roof will help ensure that your roof is able to protect your home from the elements. By detecting potential problems early, you can prevent problems before they have a chance to start and extend the service life of your roof. Hail-bruised shingle
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that homeowners perform inspections in the fall and spring to detect potential problems early.
When performing a roof inspection, the homeowner should look for the following signs of wear and damage:
Asphalt shingles that are buckling, show excessive wear or are blistering indicates the end of the shingles life expectancy. Cedar shingles should not be curling or cupping. For all roof types, look for loose shingles, or missing or cracked tiles.
Check the condition of the flashings and shingles around chimneys, vents and skylights, and penetration points on the roof. Pay close attention to the fascia near the joints of all eave metal and look for signs of decay (leaks or rotted wood). Hail-damaged window pane
Keep roof gutters and downspouts clean and free of leaves and other debris, and keep trees trimmed and away from the building. Excessive amounts of shingle granules (from asphalt shingles) in your gutters indicate excessive wear.
