Roof inspections are valuable for a number of reasons, but the most urgent time for an inspection usually comes after a large storm. In order to file for an insurance claim after your roof takes damage, most insurers require at least one inspection. While your insurer will typically send an inspector of their own, in order to gain the most accurate reports, it’s strongly encouraged you hire an inspector of your own who can offer an alternate point of view.
Even when the weather is nice, an inspection is still vital to mitigate the wear and tear a roof naturally undergoes. As the sun rises, its heat expands the material of your roof. Then, when it sets, that material contracts once more. This, in addition to erosion from the wind, water collection, and organic growth, can lead to leaky ceilings, mold, or pest infestations.
