We all recognise the benefits of going to our doctor for a regular check-up. Even if we’re feeling healthy and happy, there might be something happening below the surface.

The same principle applies to your roof – it may appear healthy, but there could be hidden problems that end up costing you time and money down the line.

Let’s take a look at the benefits of a roof inspection.

A professional roofer is equivalent to your GP. They're trained and experienced in dealing with all manner of roofing issues. They will carry out a thorough and careful roof health check and determine if your roof needs repairs or re-roofing.


What an Inspection Will Check for

A professional roof inspection will look for some potential problems with your roof. Let’s take a look at some of these in more detail.

Moss Growth

Heavy moss growth can be bad news for your roof. It can actually compromise the structural integrity of your roof, leading to serious damage. A roof inspection will uncover any moss that’s hiding on above your home. You’ll then be able to take steps to remedy the green menace.


Not all leaks are immediately clear. You may notice dripping water in your home but sometimes the signs aren’t as obvious. Arrange a roof inspection to discover any leaks and remedy them before they cause some serious damage.

A Need for Restorations

If your home is older, then some parts of its roof may have worn out.

All roofs will, at some point, need some restoration work. A roof inspection will determine what parts of your roof need restoring.

A Need for Pressure Cleaning

Residential and commercial roofs get dirty over time. Ensuring your property looks is best is important as a homeowner and it is especially important for a business owner. A roof inspection can determine if your roof needs cleaning. A roofing company can then provide a high-pressure cleaning service, leaving your roof looking its best.

Gutter Inspections

Gutters are important. They direct all that rainwater away from your roof and your property. If they become damaged, they won’t perform as well, leaving your property vulnerable. A roof inspection will examine your gutters and determine if they need some repair work.
