Did you Know?
According the NRCA (National Roofing Contractors Association), your roof should be inspected every two years. If you are going to do the inspection yourself, remember these important safety tips:
- Inspect your ladder thoroughly before you use it and be sure it is on a solid sturdy surface
- Always use two hands when climbing the ladder and be sure to have someone there with you to help with securing your ladder
- Once on the roof be sure to walk very gently and be sure to note any curling or loss of granules, chimney or vent areas that look impaired, and flashing or trim areas that seem to be decaying.
