In Las Vegas, December can bring quite a bit of rain. If your roof's in disrepair, you don't want to find out the hard way for a number of reasons. One primary reason to have your roof inspected is that roof leaks are not uncommon.
If there are leaks in your roof that are letting water into the structure of your home, you might have mold and mildew, which are expensive to remove and detrimental to your health. Be proactive and schedule a roof inspection to address any leaks or other damage before the winter weather hits.
What Should You Expect from Your Winter Roof Inspection?
Roofing professionals in Las Vegas know what to look for when winter's about to hit. Although temperatures here stay warmer than they do in other places, we still get the occasional snow. Your roofing professionals will look for:
- Gutters in Disrepair. Gutters that have not been maintained can cause ice dams to accumulate when the temperatures drop. Ice dams can be incredibly costly, inflicting water damage throughout your home and causing countless other issues with your roof and gutter systems.
- Missing Shingles. Shingles are typically easy to replace, but you want to replace them as soon as they start to show signs of aging to prevent major damage down the road. Broken, cracked or missing shingles are a sure sign you could incur water damage if you don't act quickly.
- Dampness Inside Your Home. A damp interior is often the result of something on the exterior not allowing water to drain properly, such as debris clogging up your downspouts and gutters. Dampness indoors could also signify ventilation problems. If damp air seeps into the attic, it could cause instability in the roof's structure.
