STORM DAMAGE?

Hail damage isn’t always easy to detect on a flat roof. In fact, damage from a weather event may go unnoticed for months or even years, long past the allowable time to file a claim for compensation with your insurance company. As there have been some significant storms of late, it is important to have a specialist inspect your roof. Some hail roof damage is pretty obvious, while other damage is not. Severe roof damage can be seen visually in the form of holes, splitting, and cracking in the roofing material. Latent damage refers to structural damage that you may not be able to see visually, but will likely cause issues such as leaks and cracks later on if it is not addressed. If damaged roofs are ignored, the owner is looking at a host of problems down the road including mold, increased energy bills, decreased property value and other safety issues.

Top Reasons Why Spring Is The Best Time For Roof Inspections

Winters can be brutal. If you own a business, you know how important your roof can be to the health of it. A leaking roof can cost you thousands of dollars in lost product and revenue as well as make your business look unprofessional if you have to place buckets in strategic places in order to catch the leaks. Taking the time to perform an inspection on your roof during the spring can reap plenty of dividends later on down the road.

Choose the Professionals

Beating rain and heavy snowfalls can take a toll on your roof, but do you know what to look for when completing an inspection? Professional roofing companies not only know what to look for when they inspect your roof, they also have specialized tools and ladders. These tools ensure that the job is completed thoroughly as well as safely. Another reason for choosing a professional? You don’t have to squeeze a roof inspection in between all of your other business needs. The professionals can give your roof the time that is needed so that nothing is missed.

Catch Problems Early

It’s easy to think that just because you do not see any obvious signs of a leak that your roof is in great shape. The reality, though, is that you often cannot see problem areas until they make their presence — unpleasantly! — known. Springing for a roof inspection gives you firsthand knowledge of any weak areas that might allow water to breach its barriers so that you can get them fixed promptly.

Stay Beautiful

The look of your property says a great deal about your business as well as your professionalism. Cosmetic damage such as missing roofing elements not only allow precipitation to penetrate your building, they look unsightly and unkempt. This can lead to an overall sloppy look that does not exude confidence in your business.
