Should You Inspect Your Own Roof? Probably Not

In the past, we have discussed some of the many reasons to inspect your roof. For example, this is always a good idea before the winter months arrive.

But here is the question: who is going to inspect your roof? While some people get the urge to do this themselves, others realize that it could be a mistake.

The primary benefit of inspecting your own roof is that it is free of cost. Of course, money isn’t what matters most. Here are three reasons why you should always call on the help of a professional:

1. Safer. Do you really want to risk injury by climbing on your roof? You should think twice before you get out the ladder and take the first step.

2. A professional knows what they are looking at. It is one thing to get on your roof. It is another thing entirely to know what you are looking at and to make an informed decision as to what you should do next.

3. Quick and efficient repairs. Do you know what to do if you see something wrong, such as a missing shingle? When you hire a professional, you don’t have to concern yourself with identifying the problem and then finding a fix. They will do all the work for you.

If you have come to realize that inspecting your own roof is a mistake, don’t hesitate to contact us for professional assistance

Customer Reviews

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
