One of the most common mistakes homeowners make when renovating is not having a roof checked prior to getting the work started.
If your roof is less than five years old, it should be too early to worry about any roof failures or corrosion, but keep in mind that with every passing year, it is worth keeping an eye out for corroded roof metals (flashings) or separations of the roof layers. And don’t forget to clean out your gutters and downspout pipes annually.
Renovations are expensive, and the rainy season isn’t over yet, so don’t waste hard-earned money and lose any home improvement work to something as avoidable as a leaky roof!
