10oct10b2a14Have you checked the condition of your roof lately? Does it look like this?  Perhaps you're wondering why you might need a roof inspection before winter hits. Even if your roof does not look damaged, it still might be time to have it inspected. This is because after the winter rolls around, you might notice the small problems turns into large damage when the weight of a heavy, wet snow piles up on your roof.  To be ready for the weather ahead, you want to make sure you have all the necessary roof repairs done and that you’re ready for the long, cold winter ahead.  While emergency roof repairs can be made in the winter, it's less expensive and more convenient to have them done now.
