Why Yearly Roof Inspections Are Important

The common saying “a roof over your head” doesn’t imply just the functional act of having shelter, it’s about having a place to call home.

And not just any roof will do. A damaged or leaking roof causes stress, discomfort, and neglects its most basic function – to protect your family from the elements.

A well built, quality roof can help keep your family safe and protected for generations. Care for it like it cares for you by scheduling your yearly roof inspection with a certified roofing contractor.

Why Inspect Yearly?

Both the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and the National Homebuilders Association (NHA) recommend having your home’s roof inspected by a certified roofing contractor at least once a year, if not twice.

Regular roof maintenance is often the most overlooked aspect of home ownership and upkeep. It’s also the single most important factor (after proper installation) for determining the life span and cost of a roof over it lifetime (NRCA).

Regular roof inspections allow for any potential issues to be identified and addressed early on. If left undiscovered, small issues can quickly grow to be much larger and be much more costly to repair. Not to mention major issues can have more lasting effects to other areas of your home. These can include:

  • Interior mold and mildew
  • Fire hazards from water damage
  • Higher utility bills from wasted energy
  • Damage to your ceiling, attic, as well as anything stored there
  • Compromised structural integrity – a.k.a. needing a roof replacement

Only Certified Roofing Contractors Can Provide Roof Inspections

While many general home inspectors can evaluate a home’s electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems, they typically are not licensed to perform roof inspections. Instead, they contract a seasoned roofing contractor, such as Frank’s Roofing, to conduct the inspection.

A professional roofing contractor will be able to provide a thorough inspection and identify issues that have possibly gone unnoticed over the years. They know what to look for and how best to remedy any issues.

When it comes to the Fort Myers and Cape Coral areas, it is especially important to hire a roofing contractor that has extensive experience with roofs in that specific area. Storms, winds, and other features of our aggressive, gulf-coast weather can cause significant damage to roofs that can sometimes go unnoticed by an inexperienced contractor.

Frank’s Roofing has been a staple of the Fort Myers community for over 50 years and knows that even the slightest crack can turn disastrous during a heavy storm. Or worse, a hurricane.
