A roof inspection is a preventative maintenance job that is easy to overlook. Don’t! Inspect your roof twice a year, in the spring and the fall, and fix any problems you find.
When inspecting your roof, check to make sure the shingles, flashing, and other features are in good shape. Binoculars might be helpful. Here’s what to look for:
- Cracked caulk or rust spots on flashing
- Shingles that are buckling, curling, or blistering
- Missing or broken shingles
- Cracked or worn rubber boots around vent pipes
- Missing or damaged chimney cap
- Masses of moss and lichen, which could signal the roof is decaying underneath
