Benefits Of Having A Professional Roof Inspection To Assess Storm Damage

If you have experienced a severe storm, whether from high winds, hail, or heavy rain, it can be difficult to know the damage it may have caused. Most homeowners are not trained to assess roof damage and may be unaware of what to look for when inspecting their roofs themselves. This is why having a professional roof inspection performed after a storm is so beneficial and important.

At Reliable Roofing & Construction in Hattiesburg MS, we recommend that all homeowners consider obtaining professional roof inspections at least once every 3-5 years in order to maintain their roof’s condition. After experiencing a major storm, however, it is especially important to call in an experienced professional who can evaluate your roof and identify any existing or potential issues that could cause further damage down the line if left unaddressed.

One of the main benefits of having a professional inspect your roof after a storm is peace of mind – knowing that your home and its contents are as safe as possible because you took the extra steps necessary to ensure everything is intact and properly functioning after such an event. Not only does this give you greater confidence in the safety of your property but it also allows you to feel reassured in your ability to make responsible decisions regarding your home’s upkeep and maintenance.

A professional roof inspection can save you money by providing valuable information about needed repairs before they become more expensive due to worsened conditions. An experienced inspector will be able to locate areas that need repairs or replacement due to water infiltration from damaged shingles or flashing, rotting deck boards and sheathing, standing water or snow loads, mold growth caused by trapped moisture within the material layers of your roof system, etc., which can lead to costly repairs down the road if not addressed soon enough.

Not only can a professional provide an evaluation for potential damages sustained during a storm but they can also provide insight on preventive measures that may be necessary moving forward – such as monthly or bi-annual cleanings where debris (leaves, sticks, pine needles) are removed from gutters and valleys; aerating clay tile roofs which restores flexibility; reinforcing rafters with additional screws; replacing broken tiles;and much more.

From helping protect against further damages by making critical repairs right away to reducing future expenses with preventative maintenance measures – having a professional inspect your roof following a major storm can truly help with making sure all areas are examined closely so proper procedures take place accordingly.
