Most people know to call on a Richboro roofing company like C&C Roofing when there’s a leak or serious damage to shingles or other parts of a roof. But there are some other reasons why you may want to have professional roofers take a look at your roof – including some not-so-common reasons, discussed below, that may not have occurred to you.
- Moving In/Out of a Home
A comprehensive inspection performed by our Richboro roofing company can provide some added peace of mind when you first move into a home, especially if it’s an older home. Even if an inspection report was included in your initial paperwork for the home, an experienced roofer may be able to spot issues not previously discovered. If you’re planning to move, getting a neutral roof inspection can provide an added incentive for buyers not wanting to worry about unexpected and costly roof issues.
- Detecting Drainage Problems
Water standing on a roof significantly increases the odds that you’ll have problems with moisture getting underneath your shingles and causing leaks or widespread damage. Poor drainage also accelerates the deterioration of even the highest quality roofing materials. If you notice that water doesn’t seem to be flowing properly off your roof, we’re a Richboro roofing company you can count on to perform an inspection to find out why. Being proactive about roof drainage issues can also protect your siding.
- Dealing with Vegetation Damage
Aside from being unsightly, roof vegetation can penetrate your roof membrane and lead to leaks. You may have vegetation problems stemming from one or more of the following sources:
- Nearby trees overgrowing onto your roof
- Birds and other animals transporting seeds onto your roof
- Clogged gutters that provide good spots for growth
Regular roof inspections can catch this type of growth before it spreads or takes root. Catching vegetation problems early can also be good for your gutters and downspouts.
- Improving Security
Clever thieves sometimes get into homes with some uncommon method. One of these is prying open a loose or damaged skylight. Roof hatches can be used in the same way. Regular inspections can improve your home’s security by spotting unknown weaknesses with anything on your roof that may create an opening large enough for someone to enter your home.
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that all roofs be inspected at least twice a year, usually when it gets warmer and later in the year just before colder weather sets in. It’s also a good idea to call on a reliable Richboro roofing company like C&C Roofing to inspect your roof after a severe storm. Call C&C Roofing and Siding today to schedule an inspection.
