Spring is here, and while winter here in the southern U.S wasn’t so bad this year, doesn’t mean you roof came out unscathed.
Though a mild winter for the most part, we did have numerous storms, drastic temperature changes and high winds here in Metro Atlanta. All of which can affect your roof adversely.
It may seem your roof is perfectly fine at the moment, without any obvious signs of damage, it very well may be. But without an inspection from a trained eye, it’s equally possible something awful may be lurking just around the corner.
Inside and out, in the attic and up on the roof. Inspecting or having someone inspect your roof fully will ensure that roof problems, no matter how small, are caught and repaired before it becomes a large issue.
Some homeowners can do simple inspections themselves, though it is recommend to contact a professional roof contractor and have them get up on the roof itself. Roofs are dangerous and without training and specialized equipment, the risk of getting on the roof yourself (especially when professional inspections are largely free) is simply not worth it.
Most people are able to inspect the inside ceiling and interior wall areas for patches of discoloration, cracks, sagging, or other signs of leakage. Some even have easily accessible attic areas they can get into and check around for obvious problems.
This sounds like a “no-brainer” but there are many homeowners out there that see an obvious problem or leak and for one reason for another put off repairing it. Days, weeks, even months go by and the problem is forgotten about. In many cases, these seemingly “small” problems turn into major repairs or even roof replacement projects as problems such as leaks (especially leaks) almost always get much worse if left untreated.
Always, always, take care of problems as they are found!
