When’s the last time you walked around on your roof?
If you go in your house and notice water on your hardwoods, you can figure out the dishwasher is leaking and have the problem fixed. If you notice termites by the floorboards, you can call an exterminator before the damage gets serious. If your garage door won’t close, you can have a garage door company come and fix it. If your door handle is loose you can quickly tighten it yourself.
The point is that many of the things that can go wrong in your home are pretty obvious. You’ll notice right away, just going about your life, and you’ll take care of it.
But when is the last time you visited your roof?
If you are like most homeowners, you’ve never been on your roof. And that’s ok. There’s no reason for you to go up there and you might fall off. Nobody wants you to fall off your roof.
But I do go up on people’s roofs, and so do my many employees, and we see things up there that homeowners miss. We see problems developing. We see things that are simple and easy to fix, but that you are unlikely to notice until the day it’s raining in your bedroom. Nobody wants it to be raining in your bedroom.
All I am saying is that someone (reputable) should go up on your roof. If for nothing else but to give it a look. Just in case. So the next time some blogger asks you “when’s the last time you were on your roof?”
You can answer, “NEVER! But my roofer was just there.”
