Denver RooferMost homeowners rarely think about the one thing keeping everything below it clean and dry–the roof. As boring as roof inspection, roof repair, and roof replacements may seem to be for a homeowner, they are some of the most critical elements to the upkeep of your biggest asset.
Your home is probably the biggest purchase you will ever make. Don’t let it go unnoticed until it’s too late and an expensive roof repair or an entire roof replacement is your only option. So, when should you replace your roof?

Roof Inspection

First things first–inspect your roof. From the ground! Good eyes, and maybe a set of binoculars, are all you need. Walk the perimiter and see what can be seen. Obvious lack of maintenance can usually be spotted right away. If your roof is older get a professional roofing contractor to do an inspection. If it’s a newer roof and you notice any of the issues listed above or there has been a severe storm (so common in Denver!) also call a professional roofing contractor. Luckily Chips Roofing offers free roof inspections.
