We are finally putting the blistering heat of summer behind us! However, just because you are moving on from summer does not mean your roof is. If it sustained damage this summer, you need to identify the trouble and fix it before winter’s freezing temperatures arrive.

At Planet Roofing, we offer free roof inspections in Englewood and beyond, because we know that many people pass over inspections as a hassle. Truly, a roof inspection is the best thing you can do for your roof every spring and fall. We are exploring the reasons why you really should get your roof inspected. Find Part 1 here and Part 3 here.

  1. Vegetation damage
    • Depending on your climate, vegetation can quickly grow on your roof, and its roots will quickly compromise the seal. Birds make nests and drop seeds, which makes the vegetation issue even worse. Trees scraping on the roof cause damage, and messy gutters just promote more growth.
  2. Leak assessment
    • People often do not notice roof leaks until there is a heavy rain. However, by the time water can get to where you see it, the problem has been going on for a while. Because roof leaks lead to rotten wood, wet insulation, and mold, it is crucial to get your roof inspected.
  3. Good drainage
    • Slope and drainage are key to the success of a roof, because standing water is an automatic leak and damage guarantee. A roof inspector will make sure that water will not pool on your roof or get backed up in your gutters.

No matter what type your roof is or the degree of its slope, you need to have it professionally inspected after cold and hot weather. Contact Planet Roofing, Denver’s premier roofing contractors!
