FAQs About Roof Inspection
Q: How often should a roof be inspected?
The persistent Florida sun, rain, and strong winds can wreak havoc on your roof. Constant exposure to UV rays and heat can cause it to deteriorate over time, making it vulnerable to cracking, warping, and decay. Our warm, humid weather can also lead to the growth of algae, which can weaken the roof and make it structurally vulnerable.
Although a high-quality roof that has been properly installed should last 15 to 30 years, a thorough inspection may reveal damage that is not apparent to the untrained eye. In general, homeowners should have their roofs inspected once or twice a year, but heavy storms may warrant more frequent inspections.
Q: Are there warning signs that a roof should be inspected?
If there are water leaks inside your home or you see signs of possible moisture damage, such as mold or dark stains on the ceilings, the roof should be inspected by a professional. If there are cracked, broken, or missing shingles or tiles, schedule a roof inspection before moisture has an opportunity to breach the roof.
Q: What is involved in a roof inspection?
During a roof inspection, the Dickson Roofing inspector will typically view the roof from the ground and then get onto your roof (if it can be safely accessed) to check for signs of damage, such as missing shingles, leaks, damaged flashing, and cracked caulk that may need repair. We will also inspect the interior of your home for evidence of water intrusion and, in some cases, check your attic for signs of leaks, mold and moisture.
Q: How long does a roof inspection take?
A general roof inspection will take from 45 minutes to several hours.
Q: Is it safe to inspect my own roof?
We know it can be tempting to save money by inspecting your own roof, but some jobs are best left to the professionals. It’s extremely dangerous to work on your roof without proper training. Don’t risk your neck! In addition to seriously injuring yourself, your untrained eye can cause you to miss subtle forms of roof damage. An inspection performed by Dickson Roofing is the best way to catch each and every potential problem.
