Regular Roofing Maintenance: Why and when to have a roof inspection

You may not usually pay much attention to your roofing system, although it protects you from the elements. However, if you want to keep your roof in good condition, regular upkeep is required.

Here’s why roofing maintenance is so important:

Improved life span

Continuous exposure to the elements can cause your roof to deteriorate, and if not properly maintained, a roofing system will only last for half the expected lifespan. Regular roofing maintenance services can extend the life of your roof by several years. Roof inspections can help to identify minor damage or wear and tear before they become major problems. Each additional year you can get out of your current roof is the longer you can avoid a roofing overhaul or replacement. (Read “How much does it cost to replace your roof?”)


It is no secret that it’s costly to fix roofing issues that have been left unattended for an extended period and even more expensive to completely replace your roofing system. Homeowners often err in thinking they will always be covered in case of significant deterioration during the warranty period. But many roofing manufacturers state in their warranty agreement that the warranty will not apply if the roof has not been properly cared for. If you cannot prove that your roof has been inspected and maintained periodically, you might not be able to claim against your warranty. The cost to have your roof regularly inspected and maintained is a fraction of the cost of large-scale roofing projects and saves you money in the long run.

Resale value

If you are looking to sell your home, you will find that a roof that is in excellent condition can increase its resale value. Buyers will feel more confident purchasing a home that has been consistently maintained over the years and will pay more for a house if they do not need to take on any significant roofing projects shortly after purchase.

When to inspect your roof

It is recommended that you examine your roof at least twice per year. Since spring and fall see the mildest weather conditions, it is wise to check your roof then as it will be easier to spot problems. This will also give you a chance to ensure your roof is ready for harsher conditions in summer and winter. It is also advised that you have your roof inspected after any significant weather event.

While you can do simple checks on your roof, you should hire a professional for a comprehensive inspection. A certified roofer is trained to spot damage that you may overlook. Certified roofers can also provide you with advice on how to maximize the performance of your roof. (Read “5 Tips for Hiring the Right Roofing Company”)

Natasha B.

“We highly recommend Army Roofing! Tom provided a very reasonable quote and answered our many questions promptly. Our whole re-roofing experience went so smoothly! First Tom coordinated with BC Hydro to get our line dropped to replace the fascia boards. Then he and his sons arrived right on time to start the job. They worked quickly and efficiently. They were professional, courteous, and extremely tidy throughout the whole job, always updating us on their progress and cleaning up at the end of each day. The crew went beyond our expectations and we are just thrilled with our new roof! A big thanks to Tom and sons!”
