As a homeowner you are well aware of how crucial your roof can be to your home. It’s also important to know how expensive a total or partial roof replacement could be. Annual roof inspections are a good idea. They can detect potential issues before they damage your roof or house and help you address them before it is too late.
Most homeowners can identify obvious roof problems. But, there are other types of damage that may not be as obvious. It is therefore important to seek professional assistance. If you have any other concerns, it is important to have a roof expert inspect the roof. They will know what to look out for. Our highly qualified staff will ensure a satisfactory inspection. This includes the following items.
We will inspect the roof for signs such as drooping or uneven roof planes. Also, we will examine the condition and condition of the fascia, gutter system, and soffit. We will inspect for cracks and rotting grout as well as damage to chimney crowns that are part of masonry chimneys. We will also inspect your attic for improper ventilation. This can reduce the roof’s lifespan and increase the likelihood of ice dams.
We will look for missing flashing or fasteners or loose shingles. Shingle aggregate at the base of gutter downspouts or in roof valleys can indicate roofs are nearing the end. We’ll inspect for damage or holes in rubber boots and seals that surround vent pipes.
We will inspect your roof for signs of water intrusion, such as mildew, mold, or other visible evidence.
We will also inspect your roof thoroughly to identify any problems with the workmanship that could lead to roof damage or future leaks. A major red flag would be inadequate flashing around roof penetrations such as skylights, chimneys, or vent pipes.
You’ll get a complete report after the inspection on the roof condition and any repairs required.
