Storm Damage and Roof Inspection
Every time a major storm rolls through the DFW area, we get inundated with phone calls to provide leak inspections or to provide a walk through and assess damage caused by strong winds, hail or falling branches. While this does help many homeowners get incite into the condition of their roof, many people who DON'T call end up suffering from un-seen damage that may hiding in plain site. Leaks can be caused beneath the shingles, and may need a further inspection from inside your home. That's why it pays to trust the professionals at ONIT Roofing & Construction.

How Often Should You Inspect Your Roof?
Typically, your roof should be inspected at least once a year, according to Zillow. However, you should also check your roof after any extreme weather event, like hail, snow or wind, and look for any interior leaks, says Zillow. Because all roofs are different, it’s important to consult a professional to know what to inspect and how often.
