Even if your roof is not leaking (yet), doesn’t mean all is well with your roofing system. When a leak does end up happening, it can be difficult for your roofer to make simple repairs. As a homeowner, it’s understandable that you possibly didn’t notice that missing shingle or slightly dislocated downspout. This is the reason why scheduling a roof inspection is the best option. Your roofer’s professionally trained eyes will be able to spot issues that are personally unidentifiable by the homeowner.
Look Up, Occasionally
The National Roofing Contractors Association (NCRA) recommends that you inspect your roof at least twice a year – ideally spring and fall. The safest way is to inspect inside your house up to your attic.
Make sure to check for these issues:
- Trails and dark spots
- Marks of leaking or water damage
- Outside light penetrates through your roof
- Sagging roof deck
For the exterior inspection, you can contact us here at KLIM Roofing & Construction, and we’ll be happy to do the job for you. We offer services for residential as well as commercial roofing in Seattle and its surrounding areas.
Trust Your Contractor
Speaking of hiring a contractor, keep an open mind and listen to what the experts say. There are certain roof issues that are beyond repair and call for a replacement. Homeadvisor.com reminds us to “Never pressure a contractor to make a quick roof repair diagnosis.”
Roofers can make more money in replacements than in repairs but this is not the main reason why they avoid repair works. Roofing repair work takes a lot of time right from the start of the diagnosis, up to the evaluation; this is often a thankless task. It would be wise to first understand the importance of a precise roofing diagnosis so that you can go through the process with your contractor and not rush it.
We encourage you to give us a call even if your roof doesn’t look like it needs a major repair. We offer materials from top companies like GAF, IKO, Pabco Roofing and Firestone building products. Any contractor can offer simple PVC roofing in Seattle WA but here at KLIM Roofing & Construction, we do more than just basic roofing services. Entrust your roofing needs to the professionals.
