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
