We’ve said it before, and we’ll surely say it again, the quality of your roof should never be overlooked.
Your roof is responsible for so many things, from protecting your home from the elements and keeping your family safe to regulating the temperature within your home and so much more. To ensure that your roof serves your home and family well, routine inspections performed by a professional are highly recommended.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the importance of having a professional roof inspection performed and what you can expect to better understand and justify this essential maintenance.
1. Detect Roof Damage
While we aren’t able to always prevent damage from happening to your roof, our team can detect it early during an inspection. Having your roof inspected by a professional can reduce the risk of damage going unnoticed for a significant amount of time.
The longer a leak or moisture within your roof is left untreated, the more likely the damage will grow into a much larger problem.
Untreated moisture can lead to the development of mold, dust mites and even fungi. Unfortunately, these effects can have an impact on the health and quality of life of those residing within the home.
By having a professional inspect your roof, they can detect damage before it grows into a larger and more costly problem.
2. Better ROI
Sometimes, you have to spend money to make money. Or, in the case of your roof inspections, spend a little money to save a lot more in the long run!
After spending money to install a brand-new roof, we’re sure the last thing you want to do is book an inspection. While it’s generally not needed immediately, scheduling routine roof inspections is a great habit to get into, as it can save you money down the road.
After spending money on a new roof, the last thing you want to do is let a single penny of that go to waste. In order to maintain your investment and get the most out of it, routine inspections can help to ensure that it’s in good condition and even offer the opportunity for some preventative maintenance.
If a roof inspection is left for too long, you risk damage developing and worsening, which can cost more down the road than the cost of the inspection itself.
3. Peace of Mind
Having a professional inspect the structure and condition of your roof can help to bring you peace of mind. Knowing that a professional has looked for damage and potential problem areas can help raise your confidence in the integrity of your roof – checking one thing off your never-ending list!
4. Enhance Safety
Safety is one benefit of professional roof inspection that should never be overlooked.
Not only will routine inspections help to ensure that your roof is in good standing, providing your family with protection and added safety, but it will also keep you from going up there yourself to take a look. While some homeowners may feel confident enough to grab a ladder and climb, accidents can happen.
Our team of professionals at 123 Roofing has many combined years of industry experience. They can use their expertise to safely navigate your roof and conduct an inspection, especially with the help of specialized safety equipment to protect your roof from unnecessary damage.
5. Better Prepare for Future Costs
As mentioned earlier, damage and potential problem areas can be discovered. It may even be suggested that you prepare for a new roof in the next 1-3 years.
This can provide you with some time to budget and save for future work to be completed, so you aren’t caught off guard once it’s too late.

6. Ensure Proper Drainage
It’s no secret that your roof can accumulate various debris, such as dirt, leaves and even branches. After a while, these materials can build up and create drainage problems.
The drainage system will be carefully examined during a professional roof inspection to ensure everything is in working order.
If your gutters or roof need to be cleaned, your inspection technician can help facilitate or guide you through the process of completing this work. If left for too long, built-up debris can lead to potential problem areas and even leaks within your roof.
7. Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof
Routine maintenance following the installation of a new roof is imperative to overall quality and longevity. Think about if you were to purchase a new car, would you skimp out on regular oil changes, tire rotations or a spring tune-up?
Hopefully not, as skipping out on routine maintenance can lead to larger problems down the road, and your car may not last as long as it would with professional care.
The same logic should be applied to your roof. By having a routine professional inspection, you can apply preventative maintenance and catch problem areas quickly before they turn into larger and more costly repairs. Thus, extending the overall lifespan and quality of your roof installation.
