Routine roofing inspections are an important part of good home maintenance. Florence Roofing Experts recommend that a professional roofing system assessment should be performed at least twice annually. We’ll discuss the importance of routine roof system assessments and the best times to have them done.
What happens during a roof inspection?
The primary purpose of a roofing contractor is to inspect your roof for leakages and damage to the roofing system. They also look for other potential threats such as worn shingles, cracks in the chimney, or faulty gutters. The roofing contractor will give you a few suggestions to improve the security and resilience of your system once the inspection is complete.
Routine Roof Inspections: Why Are They Important?
It’s a way to save thousands of dollars every year.
- A roofing assessment can reveal structural weaknesses in your roof system. If left untreated, this could lead to more expensive roof repairs.
- A comprehensive roofing inspection includes a thorough examination of the roof and walls of your home for water seepage. This could include ceiling tile spots, incorrect roofing system flashing, extreme particles, and roofing system gutters that are not based on manufacturer directions.
- To avoid further roof damage, a thorough roof inspection can detect membrane degeneration early.
Make sure to have your roof inspected at least twice a year. Some service warranties won’t cover roofs that aren’t properly assessed by a professional roofer. Incorrect flashing or penetrations could cause problems and void the manufacturer’s warranty. Wear and tear, as well as damage, can lead to early leakages that could trigger emergency situations and disrupt your home.
What are the best times to have your roof inspected?
The first roofing system evaluation of the year should be done in spring when the tree seeds start to fall. The next assessment should take place at the end of autumn as soon as the leaves have fallen. You can have your roof repaired or replaced without additional cost in either of these situations.

Why do I need a roof inspection?
Roof inspections should occur regularly as they enable you to identify and fix small issues and problems before they become bigger (and more expensive).
What do roof inspectors look for?
A roof inspector will be looking for leaks, unusual wear and tear, damage caused by windblown debris, organic growth issues, and problems that may have occurred during shingle installation or subsequent repairs.
What should I expect from a roof inspection?
While an interior roof inspection includes checking the attic for proper insulation, ventilation, as well as moisture and mold, an exterior inspection includes climbing up on the roof and checking for leaks and proper flashing, as well as the condition of your shingles and chimney.

How often should you do roof maintenance?
In general, you need to have your roof inspected at least 2 times per year. You can do self-checks on your roof to see if there is anything you notice in addition to hiring a professional to check it out for you. Once during the spring and once during the fall are perfect times to have this done.
