Professionals in the roofing industry suggest that inspecting the roof is an operation to do once a year, or whenever it is necessary. You can modify your inspection schedule to every 4-5 months, if you live in a region with meteorological risks, or surrounded by trees.
Summer can be damaging to a roof, especially if it is rainy, with occasional storms and hailstorms. These phenomena represent the greatest threat to roofs. A well-maintained roof can withstand an entire rainy season, but if it is not cleaned regularly and has improper ventilation, rain and wind will only accentuate its vulnerabilities. Standing water in the gutters can also damage the roof.
If you are going to do the inspection yourself, determine whether there are missing or broken shingles, holes or any other obvious signs of damage. Also, check the gutters. If you see granules in them, you should contact a professional San Jose roofing company roofer, for a more detailed inspection.
Summer is also a good season to repaint the roof or to clean and treat it with special substances, depending on the type of material the cover is made of. Treatment or cleaning must be performed once every few years.
You can also schedule an inspection to check the ventilation and energy efficiency of the roof.
