Why are annual roof inspections in Fort Myers that important, you might ask? This type of question gets asked quite a lot, in fact. Most people don't realize how essential a quick check-up can be for your home. If your roof doesn't have any apparent issues like leaks or buckling shingles, then it might not seem like such a big deal. When in reality, you never know what is going on just under the surface that could mean significant problems in the future.
An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
You've heard this universal statement before and with good reason. This philosophy is a tried and true way of life. You schedule annual check-ups for so many reasons, including your body, your pet, and even your car to make sure that everything stays in good working order, and to prevent any surprises from popping up unexpectedly. Well, why should your home be any different? Day in and day out your home stands, tirelessly keeping your family safe. This fact is especially true of your roof. By keeping out all kinds of weather, not to mention animals and debris, your home's roof never stops protecting your family. So, it's vital to keep your roof in tip-top condition. Taking care of small matters before they become sizable problems will ensure that you don't end up with unnecessary, costly repairs down the road..
Some signs of wear and tear on your roof can be easy to spot, but all too often there are underlying issues that go unseen without a more thorough investigation. Some areas of your roof that are generally affected by the elements, but tend to go unnoticed are...
- Roof Vents
- Ridge Caps
- Missing Shingles
...just to name a few.
What The Pros Know
There is an excellent reason that you should leave your roof’s yearly check-up to a licensed professional. It is easy to see missing shingles or a dented gutter, but can you tell if the caulking around your roof vents has become brittle? Or, do you know if the soffits on your roof are beginning to rust next to the sheeting? Don't feel bad. Most people don't even know what the soffits are. (FYI, Soffits are the underside of the overhanging eaves.) Pros know all the ins-and-outs of your roof, and have the experience needed to identify little things that would probably go unnoticed by the untrained eye. Little things, that if left unchecked when you skip your annual inspection, would most certainly be noticeable when you see a giant puddle of water in your living room because your roof now has a leak!
