Benefits of a Professional Roof Inspection

Dec 10, 2019 | Roofing

Why should you have a professional roof inspection? The answer really has to do with your building as a whole, and your investment in the real estate that you own.

Getting a professional roof inspection for storm damage does a number of important things for a property owner. At Whitt Roofing and Restoration, we have a great track record in assessing roofing systems and coming up with solutions that benefit our clients. We’re happy to help you make sure that your roof stays in good condition for the long term!

Knowing What’s Wrong

You can’t fix something if you don’t know what’s wrong with it – and too often, until there’s a professional inspection, roof problems are just sitting there over time, getting worse. Homeowners don’t often climb up on their own roof areas to inspect them for damage, so how would you expect to know if the roof has been compromised or even if it’s in danger of falling apart?

Professionals have a keen eye for signs of impending damage to roofing areas. We also look at gutters and soffits and everything else to make sure that everything is in good working order.

Problems Get Worse Over Time

It may start with a loose shingle or loss of granules. Small problems often become bigger problems over time. The old saying about “for want of a nail” is so relevant to the roofing industry that it could be part of a company’s motto.

Our professional inspections will turn up any small damage or even emerging signs of future damage that could spell trouble down the road. This is a huge value for homeowners who are not really taking a lot of time to inspect their property regularly and head off problems before they occur.

Help with Insurers

We all know that a lot of insurance companies and home warranty companies like to deny claims. It keeps more money in their pockets. With that said, in many cases, the companies are more likely to accept claims when the report comes from a professional than when it gets reported directly by a homeowner.

So that’s another way that we back up our customers – after an inspection, we assist by advising about filing an insurance claim to pay for that damage. We know that this is a big expense for a household, and if a roof is legitimately damaged in a storm so that it’s covered, the bill should be paid by the company that provides the financial insurance, not the homeowner themselves.
