5 Ways You Can Inspect Your Roof Without a Ladder

The roof is an important part of your home and as such, you should inspect it every now and then. One way to do this is by climbing the roofing system with a ladder, but this one is a bit risky.

5 Ways You Can Inspect Your Roof Without A Ladder

In this post, State Roofing discusses the various ways you can inspect your roof without a ladder.

  1. Check Your Attic – The attic is a good indicator if your roof has a problem so you can start there with a flashlight. If you see sunlight through it, that means there are holes in the deck of your roof. These holes can cause leaks and water damage.

  1. Walk Around Your Home With Binoculars – One way to inspect your roof from ground level is to walk around with binoculars outside your home. You can examine the trim and flashings for cracks or damage. You can also spot places where shingles are loose. If you do spot any of these problems, call a home improvement company like State Roofing as soon as you can.

  1. Look for Shingle Damage – Your shingles can be damaged by strong winds and hail. If you see some shingles starting to come undone one after the other, it might be time to get a new roof.

  1. Caulking – You can spot the caulking from ground level so look for gaps and cracks where the caulking is starting to fracture. If the rest of the roof is in good condition, you may need to only re-caulk your roof. If not, then that could bring some severe water damage to your roofing system.

  1. Go Across the Street – A new perspective can help you spot problems you couldn’t spot up close. Try going across the street to view the entire roof; some damages are easier to see from afar or from the sides.
