It’s a rarity in Hawaii, but hurricanes and storms with strong winds occasionally do occur. Then, the next thing you know, you hear in the news that someone’s whole roof pulled off the house and landed in the neighbor’s yard.

Summertime is a great time to take a good look at your roof. It’s sunny outside and the perfect opportunity to check up top. Please don’t get up on your roof — that’s a job better left to the professionals.

Here’s your do-it-yourself roof inspection:

• Check the yard around your house for roof shingles or tiles.


• Take a look at the top of your roof: Use binoculars or take a walk up the street to look from above your house to check for missing tiles or shingles.

• Look for discoloration. You might have mold that shows up as dark areas or spots on your roof.

• Look at debris around the gutters. Are there clogs? Are the gutters rusting or in good shape?

• Go inside the house and check your ceilings. If you have a two-story home, check upstairs. Look for water stains, warping or other signs that water has pooled in that area. Don’t forget to check the roof in your attic for the same signs.
