Roofing Inspection Tips To Protect Your Home & Save You Money

May 05, 2014

Flowers are in bloom. Temperatures are finally warming up after a long, cold winter. Now’s the perfect time for a quick roofing inspection! Checking on your roof in Spring and again in the Fall will help diagnose any potential problems early, saving you time and money in the long run.

Before you grab your ladder and head outside, here are three key things to look for:

  1. Shingles that are buckling, curling or blistering, indicating the end of the shingles’ life.
  2. Loose material or excess wear and tear around chimneys, pipes, skylights and other items penetrating your roof.
  3. Excessive shingle granules in gutters. Granules give shingles added weight and protect them from ultraviolet rays. Finding excessive granules in your gutters is a sign of shingles nearing the end of their life expectancy.

You should also take care to look at walls and ceilings on the inside of your home to check for signs of water damage. Even small leaks can lead to costly repairs if they’re not caught early.

Want to make sure your roof is in good shape, but not keen on climbing up to look? No worries. Southernwood Roofing & Siding offers full roofing inspections throughout the year. Just give us a call or fill out our online contact form to schedule your inspection today!

Team was patient and well organized in helping us get a hail damage claim completely covered and new roof/gutters installed. Special shout out to Chris for his attention to detail with the quote as well as maintaining a clean work site.

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.
