When your roof is working well, it’s one of those things you probably don’t put much thought into. However, if you overlook routine roofing maintenance, a few major storms and a season of snow can be all it takes to cause minor problems you don’t see to become serious ones. Before you end up reaching for a bucket to address a ceiling leak during a rainstorm, it’s a good idea to know the signs of roof trouble to prevent serious problems.


At J&J Roofing in Roseville, our residential roofing contractors serve the roofing repair needs of Michigan residents to help prevent serious problems from occurring. We offer roof inspection as part of our routine roofing repair services. In this blog entry, we’ll talk about what you can expect from your roof inspection.


Catching Small Problems Before They Become Serious

Every component of your home from its windows to its doors and siding comes together to protect your home from the elements, forming a thermal envelope of protection. Your roof is an integral part of that protection, helping your home to maintain a comfortable temperature on the hottest and coldest days while keeping moisture and pests away.


Unfortunately, far too many homeowners overlook seemingly minor roof problems, which can often lead to rather serious roof damage and even the need for roof replacement. However, addressing minor problems early on can keep your roof in great shape so its structural integrity is preserved. This also helps keep pests, mildew, and mold away. We offer no-obligation roof inspections at J&J Roofing to help you stay on top of minor problems and prevent serious roofing damage.


Here are just a few main roof problems we encounter:


●        Roof damage from wind

●        Roof leaks in heavy rain

●        Damage due to ice dams

●        Missing and damaged shingles


What an Evaluation Includes

You might expect a roof inspection to look for major problems with your roofing shingles such as missing or damaged shingles and ceiling leaks. However, you may be surprised to learn how completely thorough a professional roofing inspection can be. We believe it’s necessary to leave nothing to chance, so we thoroughly check your home’s attic to look for any early signs of trouble. We’ll also eye your shingles to look not only for existing damage, but also for potential signs of concern for the future.


If you’re concerned about a compromised roofing structure due to recent storms, there’s no need to be worried. Our professional roofing contractors are experienced at working around storm damage.
