You have just bought your first home in a beautiful neighborhood that you and your family will love. You are finally all moved in and getting comfortable with your surroundings and settling into a routine. Indeed, you are genuinely excited about what the future holds. You are also feeling a bit anxious as a new homeowner, mainly because you know the home you bought is older and may have some quirks and need repairs. Even though you had a home inspection performed before the sale, you still have some concerns, particularly about the age and condition of the roof. The last thing you want is a roofing disaster, so now might be a good time for you to schedule a roof inspection so you can get things checked out.
What an Inspection Will Do
When you arrange for an inspection, you will have a roofing professional come to your home and examine the roof inside and out. While it may seem as simple to you as getting a ladder and climbing on the roof to see how things look, there is much more that an inspection entails. You will get a detailed report regarding the condition of the roof, including the condition of the roofing materials. Inspectors will examine the flashing around the chimney, the vents, and other areas. They may also give you an idea about the condition of your gutters, downspouts and the drainage of the roof.
Discovering the Need for Roof Repairs
The critical aspect of a roof inspection is that it can alert you to the need of any repairs that you may need. A thorough inspection may pick up on weaknesses that, if fixed now, can ward off more significant potential problems with your roof and extend the life of your roof. You may find that minor repairs that do not cost as much can help to save you thousands of dollars over the long haul. An inspection may also let you know how long you can expect your current roof to last so you can get an idea of what may be coming for you as the years pass.
