Next to the foundation, the most important structural element of your home is the roof. It does more than shield you from the outside elements; it shields your home’s heating and cooling, electrical and plumbing systems, and your prized possessions. It’s no exaggeration to say that a structurally sound roof could save your life.
This is why the National Roofing Contractors Association recommends homeowners conduct two self-checks per year, either from ground level or a second-story window, as well schedule one professional roof inspection per year. Beyond regular inspections, three conditions should motivate you to consider calling an experienced roofing company for immediate repair.
