Summer Time Heat, Before It Rains, Is the Best Time For A Roof Inspection


 At present, we are suffering from drought conditions across the country. Lack of rain can certainly shift people’s focus away from worrying about their roof, and that same lack of rain has probably caused a lot of people to forget they ever had leaks. I’ve even talked to some people who have gone so far as to use Kilz paint to cover up stains on their drywall from leaks and then put the leak right out of their minds. However, this long, dry spell is definitely a good time to take advantage of a free roof inspection by a Bakeris professional to discover what issues need to be taken care of before summer ends. This dry season will be over before you know it, fall brings in more stormy weather, and then winter arrives all too soon.


Although rain, snow and ice can break down shingles, the sun’s ultraviolent rays can take a serious toll on your roof as well. This can be damaging not only for shingles, but also for your ventilation. Because we are suffering record setting high temperatures that haven’t been broken since the early 1900’s, you need to have your attic space inspected as well as the topside of your roof. When your roof is not properly ventilated, the excessive heat we’re presently suffering here in Iowa can result in premature failure.


It’s important to realize that owner inspection from the ground will not give you the necessary bird’s eye view that is essential for proper evaluation. Even if you can look at your roof from a second story window, you still need to have your roof inspected by a qualified and trained professional who can detect issues that you might not be able to see with just a visual inspection. Having someone who really knows what they’re looking for can pay off later when weather conditions change for the worse. Bakeris Roofing technicians are competent and professional. They receive in office training as well as outside schooling where they are taught installation and roofing techniques, as well as customer service training. Additionally, we are known as a preferred contractor with most shingle companies and as such, our technicians are certified with those same roofing manufacturers.
