A routine roof inspection is an important operation, which is a part of the preventative maintenance and must be scheduled periodically. Knowing the right questions to ask can help you not only determining whether the roofing specialist is someone you can count on, but also understanding properly what is going on with your roof.
Make sure you find an insured, licensed and well established contractor, with a solid background and reputation in this business.
During an inspection, the roofer must check all areas of your roof, as well as its related systems, for deterioration, damage or vulnerabilities that may turn into bigger problems if they are not addressed promptly.
You can use the opportunity to get information about how can you be more proactive and be able to identify different problems early. You should also ask about the most efficient maintenance operations for your roof and how often they should be performed. In some cases, you may be surprised to learn that you must adjust your roof maintenance schedule, because what you thought it was enough maintenance is actually not.
If it was not you the one who installed the roof, but a previous owner, and you do not have information about the age of the roof, you can ask the Wichita roofing company specialist to make an estimate. Knowing how old your roof is can help you approximate its lifespan.
