If you have never had your roof inspected, then you have no way of knowing if it is strong enough to endure harsh weather.
It's simple. Preventative roof maintenance costs less than major repairs. Maintenance ultimately does two things.

When a prospective home buyer sends someone out to do a home inspection, one of the key items they check for is the condition of the roof. Because the last thing a home buyer wants to do is sink hundreds of dollars into roof repair after they've already purchased the home. Having a roof in great condition simply adds market value to your home and makes it more attractive to consumers who are in the market to buy a new home.
A worn out roof cannot provide the type of insulation that a quality roof can. Maintenance is the key. Whenever a professional comes to home to conduct an inspection, one of the areas they look at is how well the roof is protecting your home from heat, wind, and rain. If there are leaks in or around your roof, then you are allowing drafts to enter and exit the building. This causes your heating & air conditioning system to work hard in order to compensate for heat or cool air that is lost or invading the home. Proper roof maintenance addresses all leak issues that can be fixed.
