Spring Inspections: Your Roof and Your Foundation

As we get into spring, your home in Colorado has two major areas that deserve your attention. The first is the roof and the second in the foundation. These two critical components serve as sort of the bread to the sandwich of your home in stability and protection.

You should take some time to visually inspect your roof from every angle. Look for uneven areas, missing shingles or other signs of wear. If you notice any, get them repaired quickly. They will not get better and the damage that a un-repaired roof can cause could be severe.

You should also check your foundation inside and out. Look for cracking between bricks or cinder blocks. Pay attention to sticking doors and windows. If your porch is sinking have it attended to quickly.

Your next question may be “Will my homeowners insurance cover these problems?” The answer will lie in an insurance review. The problem may be however, that this is a question that should have been asked prior to the problem occurring.
