Almost every roof is built to last for at least 25 years, but severe weather, debris, and sunlight can cause it to deteriorate more quickly (which can eventually lead to damage). Regular inspections can keep your roof in good condition so it can continue to last over the long term, and roofing experts recommend you do it at least once a year.

You might be wondering about the best time to have your roof inspected, and there are several reason why winter could be your best option. Hurricane season will be over by then. And because these storms can cause serious damage to your roof, it may be a good idea to get it checked once it’s over. The temperatures will also be milder, so you don’t have to stand outdoors in the heat of summer. It’s also easier to perform roof repairs when the weather is more cooperative.
