We’ve heard a lot of roofing horror stories over the years. You know the ones we’re talking about. It starts out as something very simple. A small leak that a homeowner though they could just patch really quickly and save a few bucks. But then the leak didn’t go away. In fact, it got bigger and soon a new roof was needed where a simple repair could’ve been done. More money, time, and convenience were sacrificed when they didn’t need to be. We want to help you prevent a roofing horror story, so take these tips when keeping up with your roofing maintenance.

Get Your Roof Inspected

A professional inspection of your roof is one of the single best things you can do as a homeowner. These inspections give you peace of mind because a trusted roofing professional has taken the time to thoroughly inspect your roof. These inspections should be accomplished annually. In the Lowcountry, getting them performed in alignment with the storm season will help you recover and be prepared for the next one. So take a moment and get one of these done for simple peace of mind.

Keep Track of Maintenance

When was the last work you had done on your roof? What was it? When was your roof installed? Some people know the answers to these questions right away, but most homeowners don’t. Knowing what maintenance was performed when will help you know the state of your roof and prepare for any upcoming inspections or replacements you may be facing.

Work With Trusted Professionals

The roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects everything and everyone in your home from the elements and it should be treated as such. So when it comes to repairs and inspections, we recommend working with a trusted professional. Yes, in a world where you can learn almost anything from the Internet, it’s important to have people with knowledge, skills, and experience looking out for you and helping with this work. Don’t cut corners and end up in a horror story of your own.

Remember, only you can prevent a roofing horror story.
