There is no denying that there are many critical components of your home, and they all require some sort of maintenance. One of the most important aspects of your home’s exterior to maintain is your roofing. Roofing is so important because it is the outermost barrier, which protects your home from damage. Damaged roofing can quickly result in further damage to your home. For that reason, it is of paramount importance that you get your roofing checked out, by qualified roofers, every year. In the Denver area, there is no better roofing company, to provide this service, than Core Contractors. Roofing inspections are only the most basic level of roof care, and they are essential if you want to prevent damage to the rest of your home.
Roofing inspections are so important because they enable you to handle your roofing problems, before they become too severe. As a matter of fact, without inspections, pretty much the only way to know if your roof has a problem is when you begin to notice that your ceiling is leaking. At that point, though, there has likely been quite a bit of damage done, and the cost to repair it may be very high. On the other hand, if you get your yearly roofing inspection, as you should, you should be able to avoid leakage. Though a lot of people do not know it, the timing of your roofing inspections are of the utmost importance. In general, once a year, is an acceptable rule of thumb, but you also need to know the correct time of year. Because of the way weather patterns work in Colorado and other temperate climates, people need to schedule their roofing inspections accordingly. The optimal time for the inspections is late summer and early fall, as that time of year occurs after hail season yet before winter.
Getting your roof inspected too early, in the summer, is bad because you are running the risk of getting your roof fixed, only to find it damaged again, after another hailstorm. By making sure that your inspection is carried out after all the hailstorms of the year are over ensures that you will not accumulate more hail damage, before winter starts. As for winter, the reason it is so important to get the inspection done early is the fact that snow and ice are very bad for a damaged roof. If you already have damage, as a result of a hailstorm, the ice and snow can turn a bit of damage into a major leak. Leaks in the wintertime are especially problematic, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, during the wintertime, the weather is cold enough that ice and snow often remain on the roof for a very long time. This, coupled with the fact that your house produces heat in the winter, creates a very destructive situation. The melting snow and ice cause water to drip into your roof, which then drips into your ceiling. That is why, it is so vital that you have roofers come to your home, before winter.
