Washington DC Roofing Tip of the Month: Checklist to Prepare Your Home for Roof Survey

Roof inspection is perhaps one of the most important house maintenance tasks, but it is often overlooked by most homeowners. You should at least complete an inspection at least once a year to ensure that your roof is still in its perfect shape. If you do not have the confidence to climb your roof, you may use a binocular to have a closer look. You may also hire the roofing contractors to complete the inspection.

Things to Consider When Preparing Your Home for Roof Survey

Having a quick rundown of the things that you need to do before the home inspector arrives will help you avoid expensive repairs. It also gives you peace of mind knowing that every corner has been addressed.

DIY Repairs

While we may not recommend completing DIY repairs due to the risks associated with it, you may still complete this if you have the confidence and the skills. Any missing, damaged, or dislodged shingles will have to be replaced immediately to avoid further damages. You should also check for any popped-out nails that should be hammered back in place. A shingle's bundle will cost at around $24 and the caulking material at about $6.

Hiring the Roofing Contractors

If the damage on your roof is substantial, let the professionals do their job. Get an estimate for at least two local companies and choose based on their experience, qualifications, and answers during interview. For small fixes, a handyman might be able to fulfill the task. However, you need to know that the home inspection team will be able to determine any substandard work. Be sure that they are licensed and insured that will cover you from any unforeseen expenses.

Removing the Moss

Moss removal usually starts during the fall season. It is important to ensure that your roof is free from moss or any debris. Moss can accumulate a high level of moisture that can make your roof prone to rotting and leaks. There are cleaning solutions that are intended to kill the moss. Nonetheless, you should pay attention to your roofing materials. There are solutions that can damage your roof and others may cause discoloration. You should also avoid hazardous cleaning solution.

Looking for Signs of Roof Leaks

Before the inspector arrives, you should also check for the presence of roof leaks and fix them. Regular checkup of your roof for any signs of leaks should be conducted on an annual basis. However, understand that problems related with roof can happen anytime and without any warnings. Some of the early signs of leaks will include water stains, peeling of pain, any damp spots, and the dark spots found in your ceiling.

Finally, if the damage is considerable and irreversible, consider replacing your roof. This will make your house more desirable in the market. In today's real estate industry where new properties are being listed every day, a house with a roof in its perfect condition is undoubtedly more competitive. Our roof serves as our shield against the outdoor elements. It is necessary to ensure that it is in its tip-top condition.
