To ensure your roofing system is still in good condition, it must be inspected by a professional on a regular basis. A roof inspection checks for existing damage and other possible issues that may occur.
Read on as top-rated roofing company Home Pro Exteriors discusses what you should expect during a professional roof inspection.
What Happens During Inspection?
During a professional roof inspection, the roofer will take note of existing leaks, signs of wear and tear, invasive growths like mold and vegetation, faulty or improper repairs or installation, and damage caused by the elements.
To give you a better idea, below are some of the tasks done during roof inspection:
- Interior Inspection – The roofer will check the interior spaces of your home, especially those directly below your roof like the attic and ceiling. Since roof leaks are sneaky and can cause extensive damage later on, it’s a must to take note of any seemingly minor issue in your roofing system. Inside your home, your roofing contractor will look for water stains, mold, wood rot and other forms of moisture damage.
- Workmanship Inspection – A thorough inspection of your roofing system involves checking the repairs and replacements done before. This is to make sure the workmanship for these jobs was up to standard and any damage has been properly addressed. If there are workmanship issues with your roof — such as incorrect flashing around roof penetrations or poor-quality repair — your contractor will have to suggest appropriate solutions.
- Material Inspection – This type of inspection looks for problems with the roofing materials, so the roofer examines the shingles and checks for signs of rust and stains in the materials, missing fasteners and flashing, etc. Shingle granules that have settled on your roof valleys and gutter system may indicate that your roof is nearing the end of its service life.
