When to Get a Roof Inspection
A roof inspection is always a good idea, but it’s best to do it right before the season changes. Every season brings about different weather elements that, over time, can wear your roof down—especially if you’ve neglected to have it inspected in the past.
However, the best times to get your roof inspected are fall and springtime. You will want to be sure there are no issues with your roof before the cold or heat sets in, not after.
High heat can cause the shingles on your roof to blister, warp or crack; cold temperatures can do the same. During fall months, you should also look out for moss and fungus buildup, which should be treated before the arrival of winter.
A professional roof inspection will help to identify items that a homeowner may not catch. Homeowners can typically see whether shingles are missing, damaged, or warped, or even if there’s a leak in your roof.
There are some things many may not catch with an untrained eye.
Professional roofers, like those with Bondoc Roofing in San Antonio, are trained to notice even the smallest issue with any type of roof. For example, if a nail has come up, but the shingle hasn’t gone missing yet, we’re able to see and fix that before a whole section flies off!
Benefits of a Professional Roof Inspection
Because trained roofers are able to spot issues, (sometimes before becoming an issue) related to your roof, there are many benefits associated with a professional roof inspection.

Small Problems Are Caught Early On
Heat, rain, and temperature fluctuations can do a lot of damage to your roof. Over time, wear and tear become noticeable. But, if wear and tear go untreated for a long period, you could end up with a much larger problem on your hands.
Having a professional inspect your roof seasonally is a great way to catch small problems before they get out of hand. There are warning signs that only a trained roofer can detect, and it makes all the difference.
Even the smallest damage to shingles will allow water to collect on your roof. When enough water accumulates, it will start to leak or else corrode the shingles. Regardless, you’ll be glad to deal with it when it’s still a small issue.
You Can Avoid Big Repairs
Fixing small issues as they happen prevents them from growing or spreading to other parts of your roof. Once a small issue has been fixed, you won’t have to worry about it turning into a big expensive repair in the future.
Water accumulation on broken shingles can eventually lead to a leak, or else the shingles will begin to corrode. Corroded shingles must be replaced. This becomes expensive when large portions of your roof have been damaged by stagnant water.
If you identify and deal with the problem early on, you won’t have to pay for it (literally or figuratively) later. It’s that simple!
Avoiding future repairs also means avoiding future expenses on your roof. Regular preventative roof inspections are a great way to reduce the amount of money you spend on roof repairs.
This also means the money you save can be put away in your rainy-day fund. In the event of an unpredicted storm, any storm damage repairs that need to be made can be afforded without worry.
Regular roof inspections also prevent the need for unnecessary replacements, which would take more hard-earned money out of your pocket. We only want you to pay for what you need.
Reduce the Need for Unnecessary Replacements
Small issues do not always require major repair or replacement jobs, but some companies will try to upsell you on things you don’t need.
This wastes your time and money, and often it doesn’t even solve the problem. For example, small growths of harmless algae can be mistaken for moss or fungus. If your contractor misidentifies the algae as something it’s not, they may advise you to replace your roof. This will drain your time and money unnecessarily.
