The Benefits of a Free Roof Inspection

Benefits of Roof Inspections
Your home is typically the biggest investment you make in a lifetime. Proper home maintenance is a necessity if you want to maintain its value and keep your family and belongings safe. One of the biggest pieces to your home is the roof. Even though you use it daily, it is often overlooked because you don’t actually see it.
A great way to maintain your roof and maximize its longevity is through a professional roof inspection. Sanders & Sanders Roofing, as well as other roofing contractors, offer home roof inspections free to homeowners.
Here are five benefits of roof inspections:
Find Water Damage
On the exterior, roofing contractors will check the overall condition of the roof and flashing. They will also check for soft spots and leaks. They should review the interior of your roofing system. Inside, they will check your attic for the right insulation, ventilation set-up, leaks, mildew, and mold. Water damage usually begins long before you see a wet spot on your ceiling. A professional will be able to catch these leaks before they cause major damage to your home.
Since you don’t check your attic or roof regularly, you won't know anything is wrong until you have a roof inspection. Professional roofing contractors can recommend minor repairs that help you save money in the long run. If damage isn’t repaired quickly, it continues to fester and cause major damage which can often turn into a full roof replacement.
Simplifies Insurance Claims
The detailed reports that professional contractors provide are complete with their findings and recommendations from the inspection. If you ever needed to file an insurance claim, these reports make claims easier to file and receive approval for. They explain the type of damage, what is needed to fix it, and an estimated cost.
Increases the Life of Your Roof
Annual roof inspections help extend the life of the roof because you are aware of the damage and can make minor repairs as needed. On average, a full roof replacement costs $10,000 and should last 30 years. The annual roof inspection could save you a few sleepless nights if you schedule it before an issue ever comes up.
Peace of Mind
Annual roof inspections give you peace of mind that you’ve taken the necessary steps to protect your family and your home. Even if a roofing contractor finds damage, you will have a plan in place on how to repair it, the cost, and how to maintain it moving forward.
Roofing inspections should be done annually to save you time, money, and stress. Contact Sanders & Sanders Roofing to schedule your free roof inspection today. We proudly serve the residential and family roofing needs in Jackson and along the Mississippi coast.
