Is Fall a Good Time for a Roof Inspection?
Regular home maintenance is essential to your home’s safety and length of life for each component. Sometimes home warranties will require that you do certain inspections as well. Having an annual roof inspection is a great way to ensure that your roof is in good standing and still able to do its job of protecting your home from the elements. What is the best time to have a roof inspection? Well, if your time is limited then any time is good, but fall is probably one of the best times.
Fall is a great time for a roof inspection because summer has ended, which means your home probably went through some pretty extreme storms, possible lightning strikes, and lots and lots of sun. Spring brings a ton of rain which means if there are any potential leaks, fall is the best time to see them. Plus, winter is right around the corner so if you need minimal repairs, fall is the best time to get them done before the snow and ice damage any issues further.
Accessibility and Time
Being able to access your roof is pretty important when you need a roof inspection. Because the temperatures in the fall season are mild and usually clear, it makes it easy for a trusted roofing company to do the inspection quickly and with quality. Additionally, since there is little to no humidity and storms are less common in fall, there is more time for the work to be done and to settle in before the harsh weather arrives.
Leaves, Branches, and Trees
Falling objects are a frequent occurrence in the fall months. Leaves, branches, and even trees tend to take the summer weather hard and can decide to fall on your roof at this time. This can damage your roof, causing leaks and other potential problems.
