Checking Out The Roof

If there's no obvious signs of weathering on the inside of your house, and you can't find records indicating how long ago the roof was repaired or replaced. It's time to whip out the trusty ladder and check things out from above. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, we'll gladly come out and inspect your home for free. If it's not a problem and you're up on the roof, check all around the flashings, vents, chimneys and skylights. Anywhere your roof intersects with part of your house should be checked for mold, lichen, rips, tears or any signs of damage. If you have an older home and the flashings are made of cement or tar, now would be an excellent time to upgrade to metal for added durability.

Lichen, Moss, Mold & Rot

One thing you may be able to notice from the ground, or while up on the roof, is any lichen, mold or rot that appears on your roof. If your roof is generally dark in color, but starts to appear darker or even take on a green tinge, then you may need to get your roof replaced -- depending on how quickly it's caught, repair may be possible.

If you're not sure what to do, don't worry, we have you covered. Give us a call or send us an email today and we'll setup an appointment to come checkout your home and the roof it's under. With any luck, nothing major will need to be done and we can get you back in tip-top-shape in as little as a day. If your roof is younger than 15 years old, chances are we can get by with a simple inspection and touch-up work.
