When, Why, and How Should a Professional Roof Inspection Be Scheduled?

When you own a home, you understand the importance of upkeep, which includes keeping up with the roof. Periodic roof inspections can help you save money on pricey repairs caused by minor defects, but how do you know when to schedule one (and how do you conduct it)?

This article explains when, why, and how to arrange a professional roof inspection with the finest roofer in Las Cruces.

When Should You Get a Professional Roof Inspection?

If you see any damage to your roof or if you're suffering leaks inside your house, don't delay — contact a roofing professional right once. Your roof is your home's first line of protection against storms and other weather occurrences, and if it is damaged, the rest of your house is vulnerable.

Under typical conditions, such as when there haven't been any significant hail storms, high winds, or other weather events, and when everything at home is running well, you should get your roof inspected once a year. If you don't have any difficulties with it, you may even inspect it yourself.

However, there are certain major warning signals that indicate you should contact a roofing professional right now.

Red Flags That Indicate You Need a Roof Inspection Right Away

If you observe any of the following problems, you should get your roof inspected straight away:

The roof deck is sagging. Many roofs have varying degrees of pitch, but all lines should be relatively straight. If any lines appear to be drooping, this might suggest a serious condition that must be addressed immediately.
Algae development. Algae development isn't a guarantee that you require roof repair, but it does indicate that moisture is present on your roof. Typically, this appears as black dots or streaks.
Shingles have been damaged. If you have missing shingles, or if your shingles are cracked, curling at the corners and edges, or seem "bald" due to granule loss, restoring them can save you a lot of money. You should hire a professional roof inspector to determine the extent of the damage.
Internal leaks in your home. If your roof is leaking, you should have a professional come out and inspect the damage before it worsens.
From the attic, light shines through. If light can get in, so can vermin, water, and other nefarious elements. To make repairs, you'll need to contact a roofing professional as soon as feasible.
Gutter granules with shingle granules. When you detect shingle particles in your gutters, it means that the condition of your roof is deteriorating. Those granules are designed to defend your house from the elements, and if they come loose from your shingles, the shingles can't do their job.
