Shirley, the types of products used on roofs today typically remain in good condition for decades. However, unusual weather such as hail or high winds can create problems that need to be addressed as quickly as possible. A damaged roof can lead to leaks, mold and costly repairs. A roof inspection determines the integrity and lifespan of a roof. Checking a roof every 2-4 years is sufficient, unless there is unusual weather or you notice water spots on your ceilings and walls, if you see any sagging, broken, curled or missing shingles or missing flashing. These are all indicators that the roof possibly needs repair. It is also good to check your attic for any noticeable signs of water damage, visible holes, light penetration, again, these are signs your roof should be inspected.
