If you’re a landlord or property manager, you should schedule regular roofing inspections for all your properties. After all, you likely have regular tune ups for your HVAC systems, why should your roofing be any different. Both are an important part of the property and expensive to repair or replace. Here are three reasons regular roofing inspections protect your investment.
Reduced Repair Costs
A roof repair to a roofing issue caught early is less extensive. Less extensive equates to less expensive than if the repair went months without being attended to. If you have regular roofing inspections on your properties, little things like loose flashing or a missing shingle can be repaired before there’s water damage inside the property.
Increase the Longevity of Your Roof
Although no roof will last forever, a maintained one will last longer than a neglected one. Having a trusted roofer inspect yours at least once a year will help it last it’s expected life. A roof is just like any other working part of the home, you want it to last as long as is reasonable. This circles back to reduced repair cost because if a repair becomes too extensive, it no longer makes sense to repair it and you end up prematurely replacing your roof.
Better Rental Rates
A better-looking property rents for a higher amount. Because your roof is a highly visible element, keeping it looking great for as long as possible will help with curb appeal and return better rental rates. The same goes with your entry door, windows and siding. Keep them in great shape and you’ll be able to rent your property for a higher amount.
