Time to Have Your Roof Inspected by Johnson Roofing Professionals

12 December 2022

Inspections of roofs often take place when a problem manifests, and they are only completely replaced when necessary. However, you can extend the roofs’ useful lives with good maintenance. The first step in extending roof life is routine inspection. It would be best if you did roof inspections twice a year, once after the coldest weather and once after the hottest weather (and always a good idea to inspect the roof after a major weather event).

Inspections are affordable and might offer useful details that could help avoid future costly repairs. The first stage in a proactive roof management programme is a roof inspection, which can assist owners schedule and planning repairs rather than being stressed out and dealing with urgent leak repairs. Below are reasons for you to have your roof inspected by Johnson Roofing professional:

Storm Damage

Roof damage can result from strong winds, hail, and other weather-related disasters. In order to avoid further damage, you should therefore inspect your roof immediately after severe weather.

Routine Maintenance Damage

Tradespeople working on air conditioners and other equipment might cause harm to your roof if it is not properly covered. Tradespeople sometimes fail to close access panels or clean up their debris, which causes this to happen. By doing regular roof inspections, you will be able to detect this type of damage as soon as possible.

Weathering and Aging

The benchmark for multiple low-slope roofs is 20 to 30 years, while for single-ply roofs, it’s roughly 15 to 25 years. All roof ages and weathers naturally, and the results are typically apparent.

Leak Assessment

The main reason for most inspections is leaking following a particularly strong downpour. However, a leak is merely a sign of an issue that may have been developing for some time. Without any signs of a roof leak, damage such as rotting wood, mould, damp insulation, or corrosion could still exist as a result of undetected moisture infiltration. Identifying moisture leaks may help in the discovery of termite infestations.

Proper Drainage

Leaks and moisture infiltration are more likely when standing water is on a roof. Regular roof inspections are crucial to ensuring proper drainage. Roof drains are frequently clogged or blocked by leaves, trash, debris, and hurled objects.

Security

Unlocked roof hatches and skylights are popular entry points for thieves. While a broken skylight is likely to be a source of water leakage, unprotected skylights can also provide a security danger. Regular inspections can reveal security vulnerabilities and enable owners to lessen the probability of burglary.

Traditional manual roof inspections call for people to use scissor lifts, cherry pickers, scaffolding, harnesses, or high ladders to walk onto rooftops and take pictures. Due to the utilisation of elevated work platforms and extensive planning, this job can be time-consuming, labour-intensive, expensive, and sometimes dangerous.
