Why wait for the drip, drip, drip of a damaged roof It’s a good idea to inspect your roof regularly, particularly in Texas where we get extreme weather.
You can inspect your roof yourself by either climbing on your roof or by using binoculars from the ground.
If you do choose to go up on the roof yourself, remember to always utilize proper safety equipment to prevent any falls or injury.
Here are some things to look for:
- Check flashing for damage or inadequate coverage
- Look under eaves and overhangs for damage
- Examine shingles for any that are missing, cracked, curled, torn, or warped
- Look for any open seams, joints or popped and rusted nails or stains around nails
- Look for signs of insects or critter infestation (squirrels love climbing on roofs and they can make holes)
- Check for sagging or unsound areas
- Check for rotten fascia and eaves
- Inspect your sources of roof ventilation to make sure they are not clogged
- Inspect gutters for sagging or signs of leaks and be sure to remove any leaves or debris
- Check for dark patches or biological growth
- Check around pipes and roof penetrations to make sure they are sealed and in good shape
- Look inside the attic for signs of leaks, dark spots, holes, sagging sheathing or rotting wood
