Why You Need a Roof Inspection

Share It:

Are you wondering why you need a roof inspection? Even if your home doesn’t have telltale signs of a roof problem, such as leaks or missing shingles, a roof inspection is still critical when it comes to defending your home against the elements. 

Roof Inspections Uncover Hidden Problems

A thorough inspection of your roof will unveil underlying problems you didn’t know about. Chimneys, shingles, and the flashing will be thoroughly inspected to ensure your roof system is healthy and functioning properly.

Small roof and structural problems can quickly escalate into major damage when they aren’t caught early. This is why it’s vital to have your roof thoroughly inspected at least once per year.

Repair Minor Problems Before You Need a Full Roof Replacement

Once your roof inspector detects a problem area, you’ll be in a position to make an informed decision on the next course of action. Whether it’s a minor repair or a full roof replacement, a thorough roof inspection should be part of your home’s preventative maintenance.

Who wants to be shocked by the news that the roof needs an urgent replacement? A roof inspection helps you plan and budget for repairs before they become emergencies. If your insurance won’t cover roof damage, there are home improvement loans available that make repairing or replacing your roof affordable, without touching the equity of your home.

What is a Roof Pipe Boot?

Share It:

Let’s talk shop, specifically about roof pipe boots. Here is what they are, where they’re located, why you need them, and which type is best suited for your Texas home. Because really, you might need to know this someday.

Where Are Pipe Boots Located?

Whether you’re Googling how to inspect your roof or planning on working with a roof professional for your repairs, you might hear the term pipe boots and wonder…what are those?

Step outside for a moment and take a look at your roof. You’ll probably see a few pipes with flashing or rubber collars around them. These are pipe boots and they’re installed to waterproof your plumbing vent pipes to prevent leakage. While there are other types of vent boots such as retrofitted or copper, plastic and lead pipe boots are the most common in residential roof applications.

Are Lead Pipe Boots Better Than Plastic?

Heritage Residential Roofing

Without a doubt, lead pipe boots are superior to plastic boots. Although plastic is more economical, they have to be replaced every 5-7 years. In the blazing Texas sun, plastic boots have a tendency to dry out and crack and that means, guess what? A leak is in your roof’s future.

Lead is for Life

Heritage Construction is committed to using the highest quality materials, and lead pipe boots will outlast your home. This is why we ONLY use lead boots in our roofing systems. Our lifetime roof warranty ensures you’re protected. You won’t have to worry about boot replacement or bother Googling more information about it again.

While some people can successfully change their roof pipe boots, it’s always good to have a professional roofer on your side. Contact us today for a free roof inspection, and let’s put some lead on those pipes.
