Your roof should be inspected by a professional roofer every year. We also suggest you have your roof inspected after any violent storms. A professional roofer is trained to pinpoint areas of weakness, leaks, and anything else out of the ordinary. The correct identification of any trouble spots is necessary to perform timely repairs before they become more serious. In some unusual cases, you may have to replace your roof to safeguard your home’s framing. In the end, a professional roof inspection has the potential to save you thousands of dollars.
