We are only 3 weeks away from spring (March 20) and although this winter has been mostly mild, the warmth will be much more consistent, meaning outside workers, like roof contractors, will be able to work more often. Which makes it a great time to get your roof ready for what is to come!
Although the warm days are more consistent, Spring also brings heavy rains, storms and even tornadoes! During these times roof contractors can get quite busy, especially after large storms, resulting in backlogs and increased wait times for homeowners. Having your home inspected and repaired, if necessary, before the season starts can save you not only time and money but also your sanity.
Here are 3 things you should do now, especially if it’s been a while since your last roof inspection/maintenance.
Inside and out, in the attic and up on the roof, inspecting yourself (if you are an experienced roofer) or having a professional roof contractor inspect your roof fully and carefully will ensure that roof problems, no matter how small, are caught and repaired before it becomes a large issue….if they know what they are doing.
While most homeowners can do some inspections themselves (particularly inside the home or from the ground outside), it is recommend to contact a professional (such as Atlanta Roofing Specialists) and have them get up on the roof itself. With Atlanta Roofing Specialists offering FREE roof inspections, there is no reason to take the risk yourself.
If you’d like to do a quick indoor inspection yourself prior to contacting a professional roof contractor, be sure 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 problems. If you notice any sign of problems, contact a professional roofing contractor immediately before the problem gets out of control.
This sounds like a “no-brainer” but there are many homeowners out there that see an obvious problem 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. Procrastination costs homeowners thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars each year!
