3 Factors to Determine How Often You Should Have Your Roof Inspected

Keeping track of what is happening on your roof can be difficult – unless you are very tall or have a drone. That’s where roof inspections come in.

Under certain circumstances, the recommended frequency of your inspections may vary from home to home. If you are not enrolled in a preventative maintenance program that includes regular inspections, here are three important factors to help you determine how often you should have your roof inspected.

Weather Conditions

It is recommended that you have your roof professionally inspected immediately after a major storm that involved high winds, hail or flying debris. Following a significant weather event, inspectors will be on the lookout for these common roof issues:

  • Missing, broken or curling shingles
  • Missing and broken roof tiles
  • Holes in the roof membrane
  • Loose or broken flashings
  • Leaks in the attic
  • Loose or broken ridge vents

Age of Your Roof

If you invest in a roof preventative maintenance program, the frequency of your inspections will likely depend on the age of your roof. Because older roofs are more susceptible to weather damage, homeowners with a roof that is more than 10 years old will benefit from seasonal interior and exterior inspections.

Tree Coverage

Though trees are generally desirable for home landscaping, they can wreak havoc on your home and roof—especially in the event of a storm. Large branches and limbs can snap off in high winds and leave holes in your roof, and smaller branches often rip off shingles as they fall to the ground.

If you’ve just moved into a home with a new roof, and there’s little to no tree coverage in your yard, it’s recommended that you schedule an inspection every four to five years if ideal weather conditions persist. However, if you have a lot of tree coverage in your yard, you should have your roof inspected every two years.
