As the primary defense of your home against the elements, your roofing system can face tremendous amounts of abuse on a day-to-day basis. From exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays to hail, wind, rain and snow, there are a lot of things your roof has to combat. For the most part, modern roofing products are designed to withstand most of these conditions. but, given enough time, regular wear and tear can still do a number on your roof.
The best way to prevent any potential roofing problems or head off any damage caused by wear and tear is with regular inspections. Inspections can help spot issues before they become more serious, saving you a lot of headache and money in the long run.
Your roofing deck is made up of all the non-visible parts of your roof, including the underlayment, the water barrier and the beams and rafters that hold the roof in place. Professional inspections often include checking the integrity of these structures to make sure that there are no signs of weaknesses or deterioration.
Shingles and Leaks
Your roofer will also do a visual check on the shingles themselves to ensure that they are all in good shape. Broken or missing shingles can expose parts of the roof deck to water penetration problems and cause issues with the rest of the roofing system. Your roofer will then replace or repair any affected shingles.
Finally, you can expect a full inspection of all auxiliary roofing parts, such as the soffit and fascia boards, gutters and downspouts, and flashing strips. Your roofer might recommend repairs or replacement for any parts that might be looking a little worse for wear.
