Good home roof self-inspection habits could yield short and long term financial rewards, including keeping the value of your home strong. But, what should you look for while inspecting your houseís roof? Of all the signs that your roof is healthy absence of leaks is consistently an indicator of good roof structure. Additional signs that your house roof is in good shape include:

  • Healthy shingles. Roof shingles should not be missing, darkly stained or eroding. Roof shingles should also not be cracked, curled or cupped.
  • Dry and clean exterior walls are other potential signs that your house roof is healthy. Wet or stained walls could be a sign that your roof is leaking.
  • Ceilings that are free of water spots may be evidence that your roof does not have cracks or leaks. If you spot stains or spots in a room, consider inspecting your roof. See no damage, but the problem persists? It may be time to call a roofing contractor.
  • When it rains, even during hard rains, if all rooms in your home, including your basement, remain dry, your roof could be in good condition.
  • Age is another indicator that your roof may be healthy. Depending on the type of material your roof is made of, your roof could remain healthy for 15 to 25 years.
  • Caulk is solid and not cracking.
  • Moss and rust are not seen on the top or bottom of your roof.
  • Vent pipes are free of rust.
  • There are no dents or misshaped portions of the roof. Hailstorms and heavy snowfalls could cause a roof to dent or become misshaped. Consider inspecting your roof following a hard storm, as high winds, hail damage could lead to more troubling issues. To keep your roof healthy during winter, itís advisable to leave a light layer of snow on the roof. But, you donít want to leave several inches of snow on the roof for a prolonged period.
A fire retardant roof system could protect your entire home. The National Center for Biotechnology Information recommends a Class A fire rated roof system. If you are in the process of buying a house, ask the inspector to tell you the roof system class for the house you are thinking about purchasing. Pay attention to water stains on walls. You could also ask your realtor if the house has flooded before. If youíre a current homeowner, inspect your house roof at least once a year (and following a hard storm). Similar to an annual physical checkout with your physician, regular roof inspections can help you to spot erosion and damage early, potentially saving you from costly roof repairs or roof replacement.

Where to live is as important, if not more so, as choosing the size and type of house that you'll live in. And it's not just the neighborhood that will determine whether or not you like your house. The size of the town that you buy a house in is key.

In fact, you could love a house and a neighborhood, including the schools, retail stores and theaters, but hate where you live because the town's offerings and reputation. Truly knowing a town takes study.

Reasons to move to and stay away from big and small towns

A lot of that study can come through online research and discussions that you have with people who live in towns you're thinking about relocating to. It also helps to pay attention to the below pros and cons that are found in small and big towns:

Small town pros

  • Less traffic congestion
  • Chance to get to know more people on a first name basis
  • Neighbors who have lived in certain areas for decades
  • More focus on high school sports and arts
  • Shorter lines to grab lunch or make retail purchases

Big town pros

  • Greater job opportunities
  • Chance to walk to work
  • Better public transportation services
  • More entertainment options
  • Center of social and governmental activities
  • Wider variety of food options

Small town cons

  • Need to own a vehicle to get to schools, store and work
  • Less likelihood that bad neighbors will move soon
  • Fewer entertainment options
  • Greater distances between houses which could make it hard for young children to make and play with friends regularly

Big town cons

  • Higher crime rates
  • Longer work commutes due to congested traffic
  • Less yard space, especially in big towns that boast a population of more than a million people
  • More social temptations

Choosing between a small town and a big town

Small towns have a reputation of being easier to make friends in. Pace of small towns is generally slower than the speed of living in big, thriving cities. As good as it seems, you probably won't find the same excitement, opportunities or social engagements in a small town that you can find in several spots in a big town.

Consider your personality and your lifestyle before you buy a house in a small town or a big city. If you like being at the center of musical concerts, live stage plays, old and modern movie shows, food from diverse cultures and collegiate and professional sports competitions, buying a house in a big town might work better.

Be the type of person who appreciates quiet evenings spent sitting on the front or back porch, regular meals at your favorite diner and greater focus on high school sports, near empty two lane roads and you might be better suited for small town living. Both small towns and big towns offer rewards. The trick is to find a town that fits most of your lifestyle wants.
