Importance of Final Inspections
Pretty much everyone knows that it’s important to have their roof inspected at some point while they own the home. Nothing is built to last forever, and as time moves forward, things will age and fall apart. The roof is no different. Having inspections done will catch any potential issues before they become major problems and allow them to be corrected in a timely manner.
On average, most roofs should be inspected every few years and after major storms. If tree branches or other debris have slammed into the home, gutters and shingles should be checked to make sure there isn’t any hidden damage. If ice dams continue to form on Denver area homes throughout the winter, an inspection should be conducted to make sure the roof is being ventilated properly. If there is visible damage or shingles falling off the roof, it should be inspected.
In addition to these moments, another time the roof should be inspected is during and after roof replacement and repairs. This may seem counterintuitive, but it serves an important purpose. The most obvious is that doing an inspection during and after repairs will ensure that the company did the work correctly.
Unfortunately, there are people in this world who only look out for themselves. They are more concerned with their bottom line and earning money than they are with giving customers a quality experience or quality product. They will rush through jobs or find the cheapest material they can find, and this can impact how secure and protective your roof is.
Even if the company isn’t greedy or selfish, they still have humans working for them, and everyone one of us is capable of making mistakes. Finding these errors and correcting them during the process is a great learning experience as well as a great time to ensure that a quality roof is being placed on your home.
