If you’re like many Minnesotans, you only call your preferred team of roofers when there’s a discernible problem with your roof—say, it’s leaking, or you’ve recently dealt with storm damage. But smart homeowners know that regular inspections are the best way to keep their roofs running full-throttle throughout their lifespan, not to mention looking great too.

Storm damage can be an insidious threat. On the surface, it may look like just a few pockmarked shingles, but as we covered in our hail damage blog on the subject, it can lead to soggy, inefficient insulation and mold infestations. Considering the latter can be hazardous to your health, according to the Rhode Island Department of Health, and the former can hike up your energy bills, these are certainly not issues you want to deal with.
The best way to prevent them from cropping up in the first place is by having a residential roofing services provider regularly inspect your roof for damage. Since you’re not up there on the daily and can only see so much from the ground, it can be tricky to tell if your roof has been damaged in recent weather. A pro can get a much safer, much more thorough view.
Even the most budget-friendly roofs are investments—and for good reason, as a lot goes into making a quality one. However, when maintenance requirements are left unchecked, what could just need a minor fix can spiral into a huge structural issue, thanks to mold and water damage’s corrosive and progressive properties.
Roofers can prevent such problems from happening in the first place by pinpointing potential weak points, thus keeping your roof working well for longer and saving you cash.
Curb appeal matters, whether it’s just a point of pride for you as a homeowner or it’s what’s getting your home sold in the first place—and having your roof looked over frequently is a great way to preserve it. Regular inspections have a way of finding small cosmetic problems before they become huge, ugly ones that take over your home’s aesthetic. Opting for them is a worry-free way to act preventatively and safeguard your home’s good looks.
