Roof inspections are important, although they often go overlooked. However, annual maintenance can make the difference between a small repair and a huge replacement project.

Keeping your roof in check with annual inspections prevents problems, and fixes them before they get bigger. Now is the best time to take care of it.

Why Now Is The Best Time for Maintenance and Annual Inspections for Your Roof

Checking for Seasonal Damage

Harsh weather is one of the most common causes of roof damage. Summer can bring extreme heat while winter can bring extreme cold. Either one can ultimately weaken your roof. However, the storms, winds, ice, and more also make your roof prone to damage.

Getting a roof inspection in the fall helps you spot damage that may have occurred from the past winter, spring, and summer. If there’s an issue, you have time to fix it before the coming winter weather.

Make Time for Repairs

If you already have annual roof inspections, you may not see major damage as often, since you’ll catch problems when they’re small. However, annual inspections often get neglected. As a result, major damage can go overlooked between infrequent inspections.

The greater the damage, the more time it takes to fix. Some problems can be fixed in a day or two, while other problems can take months. By starting repairs in autumn, you can have issues of any size repaired before winter.

Increase Efficiency in Your Home

Because summer and winter both come with extreme temperatures, they’re the seasons we use indoor heating and cooling the most. If your home is letting the hot or cold air out, you can’t use your HVAC as efficiently, and ultimately waste more electricity too. Even a small leak or crack can create a bigger problem with your HVAC system.

Finding issues, even the small ones, and fixing them keeps your home comfortable, and your HVAC system running efficiently.

Save Money

Nobody likes paying for home repairs, especially when they’re big projects. Fixing a small issue before it turns into a large one saves you money upfront, and long term. For instance, even a small crack in the right place can lead to water damage, pests, mold or mildew, and more.

Ultimately, this can lead to damage throughout the rest of your home. Save yourself money by checking your roof and making repairs before winter weather hits.
