Benefits of Having a Professional Roof Inspection

Benefits of having a professional roof inspection to assess storm damage


Catching Minor Damage

You will certainly notice things like having a tree fall on your roof or large bald spots where your shingles used to be, but a storm can almost imperceptible damage to a home. Professional roof inspectors are trained to catch things like bad or loose shingles, a slightly damages rain gutter, and other issues that could lead to costly repairs down the road.


Helping Your Insurance Claim

If your home has suffered extensive damage during a storm and you need to make an insurance claim, a professional inspector will be far better at assessing the damage than you will be. You will most likely need to tell your insurance company exactly what kind of damage your roof has suffered, so having a detailed report from a professional roof inspector will definitely help in that regard.


Making Repairs While They’re Still Small

A damaged roof can be incredibly costly and inconvenient to repair, and things will only get worse the longer you let any problems slide. Since professional roof inspectors are trained to catch even the smallest issues on a roof, they can help you fix problems while it is still affordable to do so.

Even though it is in your best interest to have a professional take a look at your roof after a storm, you still need to make sure that you are hiring an inspector you can trust. There are a lot of scammers out there who will inspect your roof and not be honest in the process. Contact Eastern Roof Tech today to set up your free roof inspection. 704.663.7521


  • I really like the fact you pointed out that the longer you leave a roof problem, the worse it gets. I’m glad to know there are roofing professionals that are able to help in finding and repairing those problems when the arise. I’m sure it cost a significant amount more to repair it further down the road rather than immediately. I hear that the spring time is the best time to have a roof installed or repaired. Is this the case? Is there a better time to have repairs done? I’ll be sure to keep an eye on any concerns I have with my roof!

      Thank you, Kourtney! You are correct. Typically it is a better time of the year for many reasons to have your roof replaced in the Spring months. The same would go for repairs unless of course, they are in dire need of being fixed.

  • I like what you mention about how a roof inspection is a good way to catch minor damage. It makes sense that small dings or cracks aren’t visible to an untrained eye. I’ll have to have a professional come inspect my roof because it’s getting rather old in the tooth and needs to be inspected so I know how long it might last.
