When you think of your home, you probably think of the cozy spaces you've created for unwinding at the end of the day or your home's energetic kitchen and its bustle of activity, but you most likely rarely consider your roof. The humble roof is so much more than it seems; it offers solid protection to both structure and people.


In Northeast Indiana, we cannot ignore the weather. Your home's roof separates your home's interior from the outside world. It offers a barrier of protection from heat and cold and helps to guarantee that you'll be comfortable and secure by helping to maintain optimal interior temperatures.

Your roof protects your home's interior and valuables from water damage and provides structural support that keeps your entire house together.  If rooftops are not well-maintained, water can leak into your home, damaging the ceiling, walls, and floors, not to mention all your possessions. 

Protect your hard-earned investment with a roof inspection.


Regular inspections and timely repairs are essential to keeping your roof in good condition and protecting your home from damage. Remember that your roof is your home's first line of defense against storms and inclement weather; if damaged, the rest of your home is also at risk. If you see any damage to your roof or are experiencing any leaks, don't wait to call a professional. 

If you prefer to inspect your roof yourself, grab your binoculars and begin your roof inspection from the ground. Look for algae, moss, or piles of leaves, as this could indicate moisture that has accumulated or rotten wood under your roof. Be sure to look for buckled or curled shingles, or damaged, missing or old shingles. If you cannot see your roof from the ground or have signs of any of the damage mentioned above, your best investment would be to schedule a roof inspection with a qualified, reputable roofing company.


When it is time to sell, buyers will appreciate your well-maintained roof and tend to shy away from buying homes that have not been well-kept.
