Residential and commercial properties can often change hands frequently, and the integrity of the roof can go unchecked through several changes of ownership. It is essential that Maryland home and business owners have their roofs inspected every 3-5 years by a MD roofing contractor like HomeTech. A regular inspection will keep you, your family, your employees, or your possessions safe from the dangers of water damage, falling debris, and mold. When you own a building of any kind, the occupants need to feel safe being under you roof, and HomeTech has the expertise necessary to give them peace of mind.
When you contact a professional roofing contractor in Columbia MD or any of HomeTech’ service areas, you need to make sure they actually get up onto your roof to perform an inspection. Some local contractors will give you an estimate on roof repairs or replacements without thoroughly inspecting the structure, which leads to missed details. At HomeTech, our staff of professional MD roofing contractors will climb up to your roof to make sure we give you a fair, detailed estimate. Here are just a few of the points we will check for when inspecting your Columbia MD, Laurel MD, or Germantown roofing system:
- Stains or dripping water on interior walls
- Cracked or curling shingles
- Missing shingles
- Excessive mold or moss growth
- Staining on the interior structure
- Penetration of the shingle layer or roof deck
- Ice dam build-up
These are not necessarily signs that you need to replace your roof, but if left to their own devices these defects will lead to the need for a costly replacement of your MD roofing system. That is why you should have an expert MD roofing contractor inspect your roof semi-frequently, if not just to give you peace of mind knowing that you don’t have these problems.
