Benefits of a Professional Roof Inspection

May 17, 2017

Much like your electrical work or plumbing, your roof is a vital component of your home. Yet, the roof over your head is rarely considered until something goes wrong. However, similar to pipes or wiring, a damaged, incorrectly installed, or neglected roof can have serious implications for the integrity of the structure and interior, placing both the contents and occupants at risk of damage or injury. The best way to avoid any problems and keep your home and family safe is with a professional roof inspection—a service you can’t afford to be without, and one with a number of significant benefits.

Get your roof inspected by professionals by contacting Southernwood online or calling (301) 934-0043 today! We serve homeowners in both Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia. 


When you hire a professional to inspect your roof, you eliminate the risk of injury associated with falling off a ladder or rooftop. You also eliminate the risk of damage to your roof. Certified contractors carry the right equipment, tools, insurance, and safety gear to protect themselves, and your roofing materials.


It takes a trained eye to spot many minor roofing issues before they become major repairs. Southernwood Roofing & Siding inspects both the interior and exterior of your roof looking for any of the following:

  • Leaks
  • Rot and/or mold
  • Improper flashing
  • Structural issues
  • Deteriorated shingles
  • Gutter or downspout concerns
  • And more!

Cost Savings

The sooner that you discover and repair any problems with your roof, the better. When you leave a small problem alone, it can quickly become large and costly. The cost of an annual roof inspection is minimal in comparison to that of a new roof, mold remediation, or interior fixes such as new drywall and paint due to an undetected leak, making it a sound financial investment.


Prolong the lifespan of your roof, while satisfying the requirements of your warranty, with regular roof inspections from Southernwood Roofing & Siding. While no roofing material will last forever, proper ventilation, swift replacement of damaged or missing shingles, and the detection and repair of hidden leaks can slow down the rate of deterioration, and extend the number of years in between roof replacements.

Southernwood is the best when it comes to roofing and windows. I had 3 new windows installed on my house just as a test to see how they performed. I'm now going to have the rest of the house done. Don't bother shopping around, Southernwood goes the extra mile.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our new roof. This is our weekend home so Southernwood handled the project, start to finish, while we were not there and did a great job. Very honest folks.

Ralph and Southernwood Roofing LLC was exceptional. There wasn’t a question that I could ask that one of them couldn’t answer. The roof, siding, windows, garage door all was done with precision. Definitely will recommend this company.
