When to Inspect or Replace Your Roof

Tips From Pearl City’s Tory’s Roofing & Waterproofing

If you’ve been in your home or commercial building for years, you may be wondering if or when it might be time to have your roof inspected, repaired, or replaced. Family-owned-and-operated Tory’s Roofing & Waterproofing in Pearl City, HI, has been serving area residents with professional roof repair and maintenance services since 1972.

Oahu’s best roofing contractors offer the following tips for establishing a timeline for your roof’s upkeep:

  • Inspection: To check for any damages, you should have your roof inspected by a licensed roofing contractor at least once or twice a year.
  • Environmental Factors: Full sun exposure, the accumulation of moss and other materials from surrounding trees, and windy and moist climates can take a toll on roofs. It’s best to have an inspection at least several times a year, given these conditions.
  • Roof Type: A roof’s materials can also determine how often you should have the structure inspected. Ideally, flat roofs should be examined every two years, tile and composition roofs every three years, and metal and cedar roofs roughly every four to five years. Be sure to ask your roof installer or manufacturer for their recommendations.
  • Replacement: Getting a brand-new roof depends on a number of factors, such as the climate you live in, the condition of the shingles, and the age of the roof. A thorough inspection by a quality roofing company such as Tory’s Roofing & Waterproofing is the best way to determine if an entire replacement is the best choice.

You want your roof to last for a long time. Knowing when to have it inspected and when to replace it can help you save time and money in the long run.
