Ideas & Inspiration from Chicago Home Inspectors

Chicago Roof Inspection

Chi-town is well known for a lot of things, but one residents need to be concerned with annually is the long, cold winter. There's no doubt that cold weather takes its toll on residents. These conditions are no picnic for Chicago-area homes, either, and after a few months of freezing temperatures, the spring is always a welcome sight for people, and the structures they live in alike. Snow, sleet, freezing rain, and wind can all age elements of your house, particularly a roof, prematurely. While homeowners across the city have systems in place to make their houses just as comfortable in the cold months as they are in the warmer ones (in some cases, even more comfortable), a problem with your roof, especially during the winter time, can not only cost a lot of money, but can be a royal pain, too.

Once you notice a problem, there's little choice but to spend the money to fix it. Unfortunately, when it comes to roofing, a noticeable problem is likely to have formed from an unnoticeable one that has probably been around for quite a while. When you can easily see a leak or water stain, there's a good chance that the problem has existed for weeks or months and has been causing unseen damage the whole time.

The only way to prevent roofing problems from getting out of hand is to identify them while they are still small and easy to fix. On of the best ways to do this is to call for a roof inspection. Metro-area residents might even consider hiring an inspector annually, considering the amount of strain a roof in the area is likely to feel each year.

In Chicago, roof inspection is a particularly good idea for anyone with asphalt shingles. While materials like metal or slate can often last for decades without any major problems, asphalt, though the most common roofing material in the area, is far more subject to damage over a single year. Asphalt's biggest benefit as a roof is that it is inexpensive to purchase and install. The money you save by choosing this material, however, will be wasted if a problem occurs but is left unchecked within the first five or 10 years after it is installed.

The Best Time
While it is certainly possible to hire a roof inspector during the winter, being on a roof in February is no joke in a place like Chicago. Roof inspection should ideally be done in the spring time, well after the worst of the weather is finished. Not only will it be safer for the inspector, it is also the best time to identify minor damage caused during the winter before it becomes something more serious.

Costs will vary a lot by company, but in most cases, a roof inspection will only run you a couple hundred dollars. When you compare that few hundred to the several thousand that it can cost to fix an unchecked problem, the savings gained by prevention are obvious. You may find that there are companies that offer a "free" roof inspection. Not to say that every company advertising this is going to be dishonest, but, as we all know, it's a rare case in business when someone truly gives away something for nothing. Roof inspection can be a pretty involved process, and though it's probably only going to take a few hours, a competent and thorough job is generally worth paying for.
