The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) recommends routine roof inspections twice annually; typically, one in the spring and one in the fall. As the homeowner, you may perform that when it makes sense for you, especially if you are having concerns or if you see a potential problem.
Major weather occurrences would be one reason why a homeowner would want to perform a roof inspection. Heavy snow and ice can cause damage in the winter, while hail may damage a roof in the spring.
It may seem like the roof to your home is not top of mind until there is a problem. With regular roof maintenance and twice a year inspection; it can help keep you worry free.
So, if you are asking yourself, when should I have my roof inspected in the spring or winter; the answer is both! But roof inspections should be performed by a qualified professional.
As regular maintenance, consider once in the spring and once in the winter before the major storm seasons hit would be ideal.
If you are noticing leaks, standing water, mold or mildew, or other visible damage to your roof, The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) recommends you should have it inspected right away. Small damage can become a big problem if left untreated and can cost more money. It’s best to have a qualified professional look at your roof at the first sign of concern regardless of what time of the year it is.
