You suspect an issue with your roof, so you call a local contractor, who conducts an inspection, tells you what’s wrong and then fixes it. After the job is complete, you shake hands and pay the costs, and the contractor drives off. For many homeowners, that’s pretty much it. But you can get more out of a professional roof inspection by making the effort to collaborate with your choice of roofing contractor. In fact, take the opportunity to learn more about your roof system by asking these important questions:
1. “How Old Is My Roof?”
A professional roof inspection not only identifies any problems with the system; it can also determine its exact age. If you were unsure how long ago the roof was installed, this information should come in handy. By learning the exact age of your roof, you’ll be able to determine the most appropriate solution to its problems and get a clear idea of its maintenance requirements. Most importantly, the information allows you to prepare accordingly for its replacement.
A trusted roofing inspection and storm damage restoration company like AQ Roofing LLC can accurately pinpoint your roof’s age based on the:
- Type and quality of the roofing material.
- Method of installation.
- Regularity of repair and maintenance.
- Exposure to the elements.
2. “Does the Attic Have Sufficient Ventilation?”
As you probably already know, attic ventilation can directly affect the longevity and weather performance of your roof system. Make sure to ask your roofer if the vents will need some work or an upgrade. It’s important that the ventilation continues to promote smooth and consistent airflow in the attic to prevent heat buildup, which can cause premature aging on the roof materials above, and stop mold and rot formation, which can compromise the integrity of the roof structure when overlooked.
3. “Is There Something I Can Do to Prevent Roofing Problems?”
Roof maintenance is ultimately your responsibility. If you want to avoid recurring roof problems or a premature replacement, you’ll want to ask your roofer if there’s anything you can do as a homeowner to keep the system in tip-top shape.
