A professional inspection of your roofing system is best done regularly to verify that it is still in good working order. A roof inspection looks for any present damage as well as any potential problems. Roofers typically check for existing leaks, evidence of wear and tear, invasive growths like mildew and vegetation, faulty repairs or installation, and damage caused by the elements.
Here are a few things that you can expect from a roof inspection.
Checking previously done repairs and replacements is part of a full evaluation of your roofing system. This is to ensure that the work on these jobs was completed properly and that any damage was adequately repaired. In case of poor workmanship – like faulty flashing around roof penetrations or shoddy repair – your contractor will have to recommend solutions to address these problems.
During this procedure, your residential roofing services contractor searches for issues with the roofing materials and inspects the shingles for rust and stains, missing fasteners and flashing. Shingle granules settling in your roof valleys and gutter system could mean your roof is nearing the end of its life, making a roof replacement an immediate priority.
The roofer will inspect your home’s indoor spaces, particularly those directly beneath your roof, such as the attic and ceiling. Because roof leaks can be subtle and can cause severe damage later, any seemingly minor issue with your roofing system must be noted and addressed promptly. Your roofing contractor will inspect your property for water stains, mold, wood rot and other signs of moisture damage.
