Roofs are considered one of the biggest-ticket items for real estate properties. They are extremely expensive, intrusive, and time-consuming to replace, structural issues that are not caught and mitigated can be difficult to fix later, and, most importantly, roofing damage can have a secondary impact on the rest of the structure and building envelope. This can be avoided through regular roof maintenance, which can identify warning signs and avoid those emergency (and costly!) roof leak phone calls. Investing small amounts in proactive maintenance is a small fraction of constant fixes or outright replacement.
