Reasons To Get a Roof Inspection

  • There Has Been a Big Storm

A simple rainstorm won’t necessitate a roof inspection, but a violent storm might. If there has recently been a lot of rain or other extreme weather, your roof could be damaged and you don’t know yet. Letting it go could result in more damage and leaks in your home. We can assess for damage and repair or replace parts that broken or missing so your roof is restored to its old condition.

  • You have a leak

If you have exhausted all other options, the leak is probably in the roof. Our leak detection service can identify the source of the leak.

  • You Need to File an Insurance Claim

If you need to file an insurance claim due to hail, rain or other damage, you will need to have your roof inspected beforehand. This process creates a detailed picture of what’s wrong with your roof so your insurance company can calculate the money owed to you for the claim. You can then use that money and we’ll replace or repair your roof quickly and efficiently.

  • You Want to Increase the Value of Your Home

A new roof can dramatically increase the value of your house, which is great if you plan to sell anytime in the next couple of years. At the same time, a new roof increases the curb appeal of your house and makes it more attractive for your own enjoyment or to attract future buyers.
