Regular roof inspections are vital as they allow for early detection of underlying problems with your roof. You are able to save yourself a significant amount of money by discovering minor problems early before they worsen and avoiding more extensive roof repairs. Here are a few questions you should ask during your roof inspection.

How Old Is My Roof?

A roof older than that may be near the end of its life cycle. You are able to better plan for replacement with an estimated age of your roof.
