Over the past year, North America received more damage causing weather than it has in over a decade. Experts are saying that there has been such a high level of loss and insurance claims that the insurance industry across the globe will be massively impacted.
I'm not a gambler, but if I were, I’d place a decent wager that the area you live in sustained some pretty extreme weather over the last twelve months.
A good offense against bad weather is a good defense and when it comes to your home the first and second lines of defense are your home's roof and siding. That being the case, after experiencing so much harsh weather you should be asking yourself the following question. How's my roof and siding doing? If you speak to anyone in the roofing and siding business, they will tell you that the best way to prolong the lifespan of your roof and siding is to properly maintain it and the best way to do that is by getting a free roof inspection.
The thing about roofs and siding is that they can sustain potentially massive damage, but to the untrained eye, it can look like no big deal. Most people will usually ignore a hairline fracture on a roof flashing or a small crack in the siding. Ignoring small problems is a big mistake because small problems can quickly turn into big ones. These two damages are a small portion of the possibilities that could cause damage to a home. Anything that compromises the integrity of a roofing or siding system can lead to water and moisture buildup. A water buildup will cause severe damage to a home's roof. For this reason, all homeowners who live in areas that have suffered rough weather in the last twelve months should get themselves a free roof inspection.
