WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOUR ROOF WAS EVALUATED?
Hail, high winds, heavy rain, snow, and other elements from Mother Nature are all things that can cause damage to your roof such as:
Lifted or Missing Shingles
And Much More!
Signs of damage usually start small, but when ignored for a long period of time, serious structural damage to your property can occur. If you do not know the last time you had a professional contractor inspect your roof, we suggest you have someone at Woods Roofing come to your home or business to give you a free estimate and inspection for your new roof! We will be able to determine if there is storm damage or natural wear and tear to your roof that makes it vulnerable to South Dakota weather conditions.
If you do not want to have someone come out to evaluate and inspect your roof for you, you can do it yourself by using these 5 Simple Steps below.
SELF-EVALUATION AND ROOFING QUESTIONS
5 Simple Steps and Questions for self-evaluating your roof and how to inspect it.
The first part of your roof inspection should start on the ground. Are small or large pieces of your roofing materials found on the ground? This should be checked after a rainy or windy day. Look around the bottom of downspouts. Are the granules washing off of the shingles?
Look at the roof itself. Can you see any pieces missing or lifting up? Can you see any bare spots where the roof is gone and black underlayment is visible?
Next, look inside the house. Of course, the most obvious thing is to see if there are any leaks. Also look for slight discoloring or paint blistering. See if the wall paper is peeling away where it meets the ceiling. Check for dampness around the baseboards and on the carpet. If you have a skylight with a drop in diffuser, remove it, and look for signs of leaking.
If you have access to your attic, bring a good light up to inspect the wood for stains or water. Is the insulation damp or matted down? If the insulation has paper backing, is the backing wet or stained?
(Optional) If you are able, inspect the roof by climbing on it. Be extremely careful. Here are a few things to look for: What is the overall appearance? Are pieces of the roof missing? Can you see the heads of roofing nails?
WHAT TO DO WITH THIS INFORMATION
If any of the above issues were present during your self-evaluation, it is best to call in a professional who is fully insured and has Great References. (Like Us!) How do you know if the company or contractor is fully insured? Ask for proof. Workman's compensation is a very important part of the insurance. The state only requires workman's compensation if the company or contractor has more than one employee. If the contractor claims there are no employees, they will be waived. If someone would get hurt on the job without workman's compensation, it is your home owners insurance that will be responsible for paying.
