    Should I Do A Roof Inspection on My Home by Myself?

    should i inspect my roof or call professionals

    Roof inspections are essential parts of any roof maintenance process. There are two ways to perform a roof inspection: you can either do it yourself, checking the roof from the ground, then moving up to the structure to check it inch by inch, or you can hire a professional roofer to perform the inspection for you. Here are some aspects to consider when deciding which method to choose:

    • Work performed at height – while you can use binoculars to check the roof from ground level, the closer inspection can only be performed from roof level. Perform the inspection only if you feel confident moving around on your roof and if you have the right type of safety gear, including work clothes, a helmet and fall arrest equipment;
    • Knowing what to look for – do the roof inspection on your own only if you know what to look for. You will need to check the roof surface, looking for issues specific to the type of material that your roof is made from, and you will need to check the drainage system and the ventilation as well. You should be very meticulous – any small fault that you fail to find can quickly turn into a grave issue. Professional roofers at can get the job done right the first time at an affordable cost.
