Baltimore, Maryland area contractor, McHenry Roofing, is one of the most experienced roofing repair services in its area. Experience that’s often used to give sound advice as to how a homeowner can keep their roof in tip-top condition. That’s why this leading Baltimore and vicinity roofer wanted to discuss the importance of homeowners getting a roofing inspection done every two years. The company’s owner, Joseph Conley, says, “It’s no secret that your roof is one of the most important structural aspects of your home. After all, if it fails and leaks, this can lead to some severe problems with the rest of your home’s important structure and cause damage to the contents of your house. The problem is your roof is never observed except from a distance in most cases. This is not an ideal scenario because there is a lot that can happen with your roof’s surface and support structure over time. Something that’s a problem because when small roof problems go undetected this often leads to bigger and costlier repairs. That’s why we recommend to every Baltimore area homeowner that they get their roof inspected biyearly.”
Conley went on to say that having their roofing inspections performed by him and their more veteran techs is the key to success. Their experience has given them the knowledge necessary to detect even the hardest-to-find roof issues. A list that includes walking the entire roof surface to detect obvious roofing problems such as shingles that are missing, broken, worn, curling, or blistering, and less obvious issues such as soft spots on a roof that may indicate hidden structural problems. The presence of too many layers of shingle on a roof will also be noted. They will thoroughly check the most common leak-prone roof areas too. This includes looking for cracked caulk or rust spots on flashing, cracked and worn rubber boots around vent pipes, and missing or damaged chimney cap. The company owner also pointed out the importance of them checking for the presence of moss and lichen masses, something which could signal the roof is decaying underneath those areas. Their many years of roofing experience also make them aware of the importance of checking to ensure a home has adequate attic ventilation. A quick look inside an attic for visible roof leaks or water stains is also an important part of every roof inspection that they do. It was mentioned by him that a thorough roof inspection helps to properly plan a roofing project which, in turn, usually leads to a smooth and successful roof repair. Proper roof inspections also lead to more accurate job estimates that can eliminate hidden costs that are tacked on to a customer’s final bill. He even mentioned how they are a fully licensed and insured Baltimore area roofing contractor that is known for delivering estimates within 24 hours after a roof inspection has been completed.
