If it weren't for your roof, you and your belongings in your home would be exposed to the elements. While not having a roof might allow you to enjoy the stars on a crisp, clear night from the comfort of your bed, the first rain would wash away the magic you felt looking up at a ceiling of stars.
We know that our roofs protect us, but it's also up to us as homeowners to protect our roofs! When was the last time you did a complete inspection of your roof? Are there leaks or pooling water that you're not aware of? These are just a few of the questions you need to ask yourself when it comes to caring for your roof.
Unless you are in the roofing industry, walking around on your roof looking for damages is probably not a top priority. If you have the slightest inkling of anxiety about it, you should just call a professional. We work on roofs every day, so not only is calling a professional a lot less dangerous for you, once we're up there, we know exactly what damages to look for.
Also, keep in mind that if you're thinking about upgrading to solar energy, you will need a full roof evaluation. If you're planning to install solar panels, you should seriously consider a roof replacement. You don't want to have to remove the solar panels to replace a roof five years down the line, since it will be even more expensive and inconvenient.
Ask yourself: Is your roof important enough to you to get it checked?
