benefits of a regular roof inspection

Why get a roof inspection? Like regularly changing the oil in your car and getting tires rotated, it’s an important part of maintenance that will save you money (and headaches!) down the road. And when your home is the most valuable asset you own, it pays to be responsible in keeping up with maintenance and repairs.

getting roof inspections extends the lifespan of your roof

1. Getting Roof Inspections Extends The Lifespan Of Your Roof

Roofs are expensive, so what homeowner wouldn’t want to extend the period of time before they have to replace one?

Think of a periodic roof inspection like your annual check up to your doctor. There may not be any outstanding problems, but routine maintenance and inspections will provide the proper maintenance your roof requires, keeping it in good shape for years to come.

Inspectors will easily catch and inform you of any necessary work so they can fix the problem before it becomes a disaster. For example, by the time you notice water damage from inside your home, it may have been collecting in your attic for quite some time. Mold could be growing, or a whole section of ceiling might be ready to collapse. A roof inspection can detect holes in the flashing around chimneys and air vents before water starts to seep in and damage your home.

Getting your roof regularly inspected will help extend the life of the roof as any issues can be detected early and repaired before they turn into bigger problems that may not be so easily resolved.

2. Getting Roof Inspections Makes Insurance Claims Easier

Periodic roof inspections will help if you ever need to file an insurance claim for damage to your roof. If you’re like most homeowners, you probably couldn’t explain off the top of your head exactly what kinds of repairs or replacements are covered by your insurance policy.

An expert roofer will perform the inspection, identify problem areas, help you prepare the insurance claim, and provide invaluable advice regarding how to properly repair the damaged sections of your roof.

3. Roof Inspections Are Free – And They Save You Money!

Do not pay for a roof inspection! Reputable roofers will provide a high-quality professional roof inspection at absolutely no cost and you should be under no obligation to purchase any services or products.

And who doesn’t like getting something for nothing? So while it may be an inconvenience to find the time to schedule a roof inspection, it pales in comparison to the hassle if something goes wrong with your roof that could have been avoided. And if you do have to spend money on any repairs needed from problems discovered from the inspection, it will be a whole lot cheaper than spending money after the problem has escalated.

Finally, your homeowners insurance will not cover any damage to your roof that was caused by not doing routine maintenance. Regular roof inspections mean that you’ll have proof you maintained the roof when you need to file a claim, so you won’t be out of pocket for the full cost.

4. Regular Roof Inspections Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal

If you’re the kind of homeowner that mows the lawn on a regimented schedule, just think about your curb appeal. A regular roof inspection can nab that out-of-place shingle you might miss, upping your curb appeal for the entire neighborhood.

5. Roof Inspections Give You Peace Of Mind

Think about how you will feel after having a thorough roof inspection performed by a true professional. You will know if there is anything wrong with your roof, and if there is, you will know precisely what sort of repair project is necessary.

Hopefully you’ll find that your roof is in tip-top shape and requires no repairs! But if not, at least you’re not worrying about the what-ifs.

getting a roof inspection will make selling your home easier

6. Getting A Roof Inspection Will Make Selling Your Home Easier

If you are thinking selling your home, then a home inspection is coming up in your future. Reputable realtors will advise you to provide a roof certification, which gives potential buyers assurance that the roof won’t immediately need replacing.

Even if you aren’t currently planning to sell your home, regular roof inspection reports will help sell your home in the future by showing the potential buyers that the roof has been well maintained.

What our Clients are Saying

  • Rusty, Plano

    All I can say is – dealing with Aaron Lenhart and Designer Roofing of Texas was excellent. Aaron and his people were professional, knowledgeable and nice to work with every step of the way.

    I felt their price was fair and they delivered exactly as promised. What more can you ask for in the real world? They started on time, ended on time and the house looks great with the new style of tile. I have referred a few friends to them since then and so far, everyone has been pleased!

  • Rob Paul

    The roof is fantastic and I really appreciate Designer Roofing’s hard work and professionalism throughout the process. It was absolutely the right decision for my project. Feel free to hand out my information as a reference for your company should anyone ask, I am happy to help.

  • Kumar, Frisco

    I was impressed throughout with Designer Roofing’s professionalism, experience and knowledge of the business. As my agent, you worked with my insurance company to get their approval, and I was delighted to see that you ordered specialized pictures of the house to make it easier for the insurance company to assess the damage and approve.

    Your team was experienced and they worked with a good work ethic to get the job done very quickly. This was key since you did not use novices to install the specialized Gerard stone coated steel roof. Your team was well trained: they covered the pool and daily used a magnet to clear the home premises of any metallic materials.

    You had no hesitation in ensuring my complete satisfaction, and sent in the experts to fix a couple of minor things that I wanted changed. Please accept my gratitude and congratulations for a job well done and a super service!! I shall be happy to recommend you and your company to anyone without hesitation.

    We just wanted to drop you note and tell you how much we enjoy the new roof. The style we chose with your help looks great. More importantly, the service of you and your team was outstanding. Your crew was attentive to the details and cleaned up well each and every day. And, to top it off, you started and finished when you said you would. Job well done!

  • composite roofing by designer roofing

    Bing and Rachel, Plano

    We were battered by the windstorm of April 2008, which tore down our entire fence, a beautiful 10-year old tree, and a huge section of our composition roof.

    Designer Roofing came to our rescue and immediately patched the roof to prevent further weather damage. Despite a heavy workload brought on by the storm, Designer Roofing proceeded to replace our entire roof as soon as was possible. They replaced all fixtures and chimney flashings to perfectly match our new roof color, too.

    Designer Roofing was very professional throughout the job, helping us understand the re-roofing process, eagerly answering our every question, and giving us the greatest value for our insurance coverage and out-of-pocket costs. If we ever need a new roof again, Designer Roofing will be #1 on our list, and we would gladly recommend them to friends and family alike!
