Did you know you should check your attic for leaks every month? That's right. Every 30 days or so you should inspect your attic for leaks and it's actually a simpler task than you might think.
All you need is about 5-10 minutes of your time, a flashlight, and a small ladder if needed. Don't have a flashlight? You can pick one up at the store or on Amazon and it will only cost you anywhere from $4-20. Much cheaper than highering a pro to inspect your attic for you which would cost around $200-300. Not to mention the money you would save on a major leak that happened months ago without your knowledge. There are some insurance claims that aren't forseen, but this shouldn't be one of them!
How do you inspect your attic? Simple: 1. Enter your attic, if you can access it safely. 2. Use your flashlight to examine walls, floors, support beams, skylights, windows, vents, and roof valleys. 3. If you see signs of mold, discoloration, or pooling water, call a professional.
It's better to catch a leak sooner rather than later!
