For every family, the security of knowing that they have a roof over their heads is one of the most basic needs.  As homeowners, we work hard to be able to purchase a home in the best neighborhood possible and then work hard to maintain our home so that it provides safe, warm environment to raise our families in.  But what if the roof over our heads is not in optimal condition?  The reality is that there are conditions that could exist that could compromise the health of the roof over our head and we may not know it.  This is why you should have a regular roof inspection.

Home repairs are something we all wish to avoid at all costs (and many times because of the costs) and we understand that repairing your roof is never convenient; it pales in comparison to the cost and inconvenience of not having a regular roof inspection that will inform us on the condition of our roof and if any situations exist that could lead to more serious problems.  Direct sunlight, hail, wind, heavy rain, ice and snow will affect the condition of your home’s roof over time and affect its ability to shelter you from the elements.  Additionally, damage caused by animals, birds and insects can take a toll on the materials that make up your roof.  The older a roof is, the more sensitive it becomes to these factors. Many people are surprised to learn the extent of their roof damage especially when they look up at their roof and all appears well.
