When To Schedule Roof Inspections

Roof inspections aren't optional, they should be treated as a requirement. It's a way to get proactive about preventative care so you get peak performance and maximum longevity from your roof.

Avoid emergency roof repair by staying current with inspections:

Ideally, you should have this done twice a year. Some homeowners get by with once a year but if you're roof is older, don't take a gamble. Plus, don't fail to adhere to the guidelines of your warranty coverage if your roof is new and requires two inspections each year.

If you follow the two annual inspection guideline, it's best to schedule one in the early fall and one in the early spring. This prepares your roof for the harshest conditions; fall leaves and then winter ice followed by spring rains and then severe heat.

You also need an inspection following any severe storm activity. Hail and ice pose the biggest threats to your roof but other factors can play a role such as: lightning, strong wind, heavy rain, snow, and more.

This is especially important if you need to file an insurance claim. You have a small window of opportunity to file a claim. Once that time passes, even if you discover repair needs, they'll be yours to cover, out of your own pocket.
