To extend the lifespan of your roof, house painting and inspection needs to be performed. Property owners must take care of the roof because it shields them from rain, the sun’s rays and pests outside. It also safeguards the inhabitants and their belongings from thieves who may try to invade the house from the top.
A typical roof inspection task should at least be done yearly, but professional contractors recommend this task be done every 6 months (especially if the house is situated at a location with extreme weather conditions).
The roof is an essential component of a home, office, library, church or any place that needs to shelter people and important things. Roof restoration must be done ahead of time before rains and other forces of nature will affect the property and possibly cause excess deterioration.
How do I address this?
Contact a reliable contractor who will examine your roof from a distance with binoculars. Homeowners who may want to do this task, but it is best for the solutions provider to work on this, as this will require people to climb tall ladders and stay on the roof for hours on end (depending on how big the roof is).
Reputable contractors may offer a free quote on what tasks need to be performed, the equipment that has to be used, and the timeframe for completing the entire project.
The roofing inspection is on the lookout for:
- Algae in spaces
- Clusters of leaves
- Corrosion or rusting areas
- Nails that are sticking out and need to be hammered back down
- Dry rot or warping wood or shingles
- Shingles which are missing or displaced
- Damaged, missing, bent or rusted flashing
Whilst there are more things to look for an inspection before house painting can begin, these activities need to be performed first so the homeowner will avoid potential problems in the future.
