During the springtime, many people put together a to-do list of home maintenance and lawn care tasks. In addition to the indoor spring cleaning and preparing your Tuscon home’s vegetation for a new growing season, it’s also a good idea to schedule a roof inspection. Here are three reasons why your home could benefit from a springtime roof inspection.
Detect Small Leaks Before They Grow
A small leak in a roof can be difficult to detect. Experienced roofing inspectors have specialty tools, such as thermographic sensors that make it easier to detect roof leaks. These tools can detect both moisture leaks and unwanted air leaks, according to the Department of Energy. Knowing exactly where the leak makes it easier for the roofers to perform a thorough repair on your home.
Identify Damage and Have It Repaired
A small roof leak can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. A professional inspection once each year could lessen the scope of damage to your home. If a severe storm passes through the area, this is another good time to schedule a roof inspection. Even if just a few tiles are missing or a single piece of flashing is loose, you will have time to get it repaired before your home experiences major damage.
Prepare Your Home for the Real Estate Market
If you’re thinking of selling your home, a preemptive inspection of your roof by an experienced residential roofer is a good idea. If your roof needs any work, you will have time to take care of it before prospective buyers visit your property. Buyers might shy away from a home with roof damage, assuming that the house has other damage, too. You can have your inspection report ready for agents and prospective buyers to review.
