Identify and Prevent Roofing Problems

Roofing problems can be difficult to detect and can lead to extensive damage if not identified and addressed in a timely manner. However, they can also be difficult to detect, which is what makes roof inspection such an important part of maintaining your home’s roof. While you may be able to identify major roofing issues when they arise, such as a leaking roof, the majority of issues will require a professional roof inspection. In Burlington, NC and the surrounding area, MCSquared Roofing is a great resource when you’re in need of a roof inspection. Call 855-812-7663 if you would like to schedule your service.

Understanding the Process

A professional roof inspection will involve a thorough examination of your roof, both from the inside and outside. The inspector will check for any signs of damage, leaks, or other problems, and will also take a look at the condition of the roofing materials and the roof structure itself.

One of the first things a roofer will do during a roof inspection is check for missing, damaged, or loose shingles. Missing shingles are one of the most common roofing problems, and can be caused by high winds or simply age and wear. Damaged or loose shingles can also lead to major problems such as leaks, so it’s important to have them taken care of as soon as possible.

The roofer will also check for any signs of water damage, such as stains on the ceiling or walls, or mold growth. Water damage is often one of the most difficult roofing problems to detect, but it’s also one that can cause extensive damage if not addressed quickly.

Something else your roofing professional will pay attention to is the condition of the gutters and downspouts. Clogged or damaged gutters can cause water to back up and seep under your roofing materials, leading to leaks, so it’s important to have them cleaned up if there is an issue.

How a Roof Inspection Benefits You

If we identify any problems, such as a leaking roof, we will be able to work with you and come up with a plan to resolve the issue. In some cases, the problem may be something that you can delay repairing for at least a little while if necessary. However, in other cases, such as water damage or structural issues, it’s important to have the issue resolved by a professional as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Our team will give you the information you need to make a more informed decision about any roof repair services that may be required.

Among the other things your roofer will look at during your roof inspection, they will take note of any wear and tear to your roof. By looking at problems such as the amount of granular loss on an asphalt shingle roof, a roofing contractor will be able to determine how much time will be necessary before a roof replacement is needed.
