Do You Know How Your Roof Is Holding Up?Posted on May 19, 2023
It’s always a good idea to routinely check the condition of your home. As a responsible homeowner, you want to make sure that all systems are in good condition. With Hurricane Season coming around the corner, checking up on your roof could save you some headaches and money.
There are several benefits to conducting a routine check of your roof, including preventing a larger issue from happening, health benefits, and even lowering your insurance premium.
Here’s how inspecting your roof can benefit you:
Preventing Larger Issues:
Routinely checking your roof can lead to the discovery of potential issues or areas of damage. By finding and fixing those areas that may cause damage to your roof or to the interior of your home, such as loose gutters, build-up of debris, and loose shingles, you can reduce the potential for bigger and perhaps more expensive repairs or an insurance claim.
When roofs are water damaged, they can become the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can be a health hazard. Monitoring your roof on a regular basis will allow you to catch these potential health hazards before they cause serious damage to your roof and your health.
Lower Your Insurance Premium:
A new roof can be expensive, but in the long run, it may save you money when you tell your agent that you have replaced the roof. Because the chance of having wind or storm damage is less when your roof is new, insurance companies look favorably on that when determining the cost of your home insurance.
