How Often Should I Have My Roof Inspected?


Reasons to Have Your Roof Inspected

Though you may not always pay attention to it, your roof is what protects you from the elements and keeps your family safe. It’s only natural that over time, your roof can become susceptible to cracks and leaks, which makes inspecting it regularly important. But, how often should you inspect your roof?

Signs of Roof Damage

Most homeowners do not venture up to their roof to check for signs of damage — mostly because it is dangerous for them to do so without the proper equipment and training. Therefore, a cracked shingle can turn into ten cracked shingles over time, and a small leak can turn into a major issue without being noticed. However, f you do notice any of the following signs, you should contact a roofing professional as soon as possible for a thorough inspection:

  • Broken or missing shingles.

  • Watermarks on your ceiling as a result of a leak.

  • Blistered or cracked shingles.

  • If you’ve had a bad storm in your area that included high winds, hail, or fallen trees.

  • Loose or cracked gutter.

  • Patches of moss.

The Best Time For Roof Inspections

Our experts at Divine Roofing, Inc. recommend having your roof inspected every three to five years. Additionally, the best time to have your roof inspected is in the spring and in the fall when the weather is relatively mild. This makes it easier for a contractor to examine your roof, but it also allows them to test your roof to ensure that it will perform properly during the winter and summer when temperatures are more extreme.


While it may seem difficult to remember to have your roof inspected, doing so can save you the hassle and cost of a repair down the line. In addition, if you suspect your roof was damaged by a recent storm, call us right away!
