Ask any roofing contractor: A well-maintained roof over your head is one of the most important ways to protect your home. Routine roof inspections are key to extending the life of your roof system.
Some signs of roof damage are obvious, such as leaking or water damage. Other visible roof damage signs are curling or rotting of shingles or shakes, damaged flashing, missing shingles, granular loss or moss / algae growth. Some warning signs, however, are less obvious and may require a trained professional roofing contractor to identify. It is in your best interest to have an inspection done if you are experiencing any problems, or even if you think your roof may be reaching the end of its life.
