Why Now Is the Time for A Roof Inspection

Keeping an eye on the roof of your home or commercial facility is vital to its effectiveness. Simply performing periodic checks and regular maintenance will save you from future roof repairs or replacements.

As summer winds down and fall begins to settle in, now is the time to give your roof the attention it requires. Often homes and businesses in Southeast Michigan end up with natural debris on or around their roofs that cause damage.

Summer storms are notorious for kicking up high winds and driving nearby vegetation onto your roof and into your gutters. With the moisture they leave behind, this debris can cause a major mess for your roof—thanks to clogged gutters and downspouts.

Rather than draining away from your roof, water sits in areas that allow for the growth of mildew, mold, and fungus. Often in the form of algae that leads to black streaks on a home or business’s roof, these unsightly consequences can be avoided with some attention.

A Clear and Clean Roof Protects Best

Debris that is not removed can increase the load on a roof due to the way it retains moisture. Not only does this stress the roof itself, but it can also lead to cracking or buckling of the roofing materials. When shingles stay wet without the ability to dry out, they often lose their ability to keep moisture from reaching the decking underneath.

If the roof is not kept clear of the debris from nearby trees or other vegetation when the weather turns cold, freezing water can force its way under roof flashing or cause other damage.

Licensed inspectors with a company like Dennis Robert Roofing are well trained and skilled in examining a home or business for signs that debris is causing an issue. From assessing the siding and trim near the roof to checking for drains and gutters that are clogged, the experienced crews of Dennis Robert Roofing know exactly what to look for!
