How Often Should You Have Your Roof Inspected by a Professional?

Interstate Roofing

Roof inspection is an essential component of a roof maintenance, a process that should ideally be performed by an Interstate Roofing professional. Ideally, you should have your roof professionally inspected every six months, once in spring and once in fall. Here is why:

  • Preparing the roof for harsher seasons – spring and fall are seasons when the weather is friendly for roofs, therefore the spring and the fall months are the best for getting your roof inspected and the best for preparing the roof for whatever the two harder seasons, summer and winter, might bring;
  • Capturing any roof fault in time – six-monthly intervals are ideal for making sure that no roof fault aggravates and that any repair that might be necessary is still easy to accomplish and affordable;
  • Ensuring gutter health – professional roof inspections usually include a check-up of the gutters as well, that way, you can be sure that the drainage system attached to your roof is also kept in good condition.

Beside the regular, six-monthly inspections, your roof and your gutters might need additional checks after extremely harsh weather events or if you suspect that your roof has sustained damage. You can perform a preliminary check of your roof looking at it from the ground, calling an experienced roofer – – with a description of the fault.
