Not sure if you need a roof inspection? Keep an eye out for these warning signs!
1. Dripping From Your Ceiling
Your roof is what separates you and the weather. Wind, ice, and other environmental hazards can cause damage to that protection which often leads to expensive leaks. Getting a seasonal inspection now prevents small problems from becoming costly repairs.
2. Stuff Crawling Up Your Walls
Putting up your Halloween decorations and realize there’s already something scary on your walls? Did you know that 7 in 10 homes have water damage and mold? Common food sources for mold in the structure of the home include drywall, window frames, carpeted or uncarpeted flooring, bathroom tile, and interior insulation.
But did you know that your attic is also a prime target for mold growth?
Proper roof ventilation is critical to keep moisture build-up from dampening attic insulation and damaging the structural components of your home. A seasonal roof inspection is one way to keep it in check!
3. Feel Like Ghosts Are In Your Home?
Unexplained temperature changes and breezes aren’t always caused by ghosts! Most of the time, they are caused by an improperly sealed window or door – but they can also be caused by inadequate attic insulation. Checking your home for signs of air leaks is an easy way to keep costs low and prevent your heating/cooling systems from working overtime.
