Five benefits of a roof inspection for your Raleigh home include the following:

  1. Identify potential problems. Roof inspections are preventive care for your home’s roof. Early detection of potential problems can prevent costly repairs in the future.
  2. Improve energy efficiency. A properly sealed and insulated roof helps improve energy efficiency and can reduce utility bills.
  3. Help maintain the roof. Your roof inspector will examine the roof and your home’s surroundings (e.g.,  oak, magnolia, or other trees on the property that may shed leaves or pine straw on shingles) to anticipate maintenance needs and establish a schedule.
  4. Reduce the risk of interior damage. A leaky roof can cause internal damage to your home, including ceiling or wall stains, mold, and attic damage.
  5. Increase curb appeal. A well-maintained roof affects the appearance of a house, increasing its curb appeal and value.

A roof inspection is an essential part of home maintenance, helping you identify which aspects of a roof require repair or replacement, such as missing or damaged shingles. Following through with needed roof repairs or replacement protects your home inside and outside. North Carolina State University includes roof inspection and maintenance on its Preventive Home Maintenance Check-Up list.
