Very nice article! Yes regular roof inspection is very important and home owners must realize this, as it would help catch the problems in the roof while it is in its infancy, if allowed to grow unchecked then soon a huge bill of repair or replacement would be staring at them.

My husband and I moved into this house a couple years ago, and I have no idea what shape the roof is in. Reading this article, I am realizing that we need to get that checked out, and soon!
