How to Tell if Your Roof is Letting Out Hot and Cold Air

The easiest, quickest and least stressful approach to dealing with this roof problem is to call in the professionals. An expert will be able to inspect your roof, see where the problems lie, and then put modifications in place to stop the problem that already exists and prevent future ones. If you don’t or can’t hire in the professionals, the job gets a lot more complex. It starts with a full and thorough inspection of the property, taking into consideration the roof, roof lining, chimney, exterior, interior, attic spaces, and more. Problems that are found should be noted down so that you can figure out the right approach to repairing them. In many cases, this inspection will require you to get up onto the roof itself, making it a dangerous task. It is important that you have a secondary person on standby, should anything go wrong.

If you don't have the necessary equipment, you will need to buy or hire it — telescopic ladders, flashlights, pen and paper (or your phone’s camera) to note down problems, as well as the right materials to put things right again. You won’t always know what those materials are (or the problems) until you have been up to investigate, and the hiring of ladders and other items can sometimes be more expensive than what a roofing company or professional would have charged you. At the very least, we recommend that you get quotes — many roofing companies will offer a free quote/roof survey/similar so that you can get a good idea of what you’ll be paying out, before you’re slapped with a huge invoice for the work. Ensuring your roof will well taken of could potentially save you hundreds or thousands of dollars in heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
