What to Expect During a Professional Roof Inspection
As one of the most crucial components of your home, your roof demands special attention and maintenance from a trusted roofer. Having it regularly inspected provides the opportunity to uncover existing or potential damage so you can address it promptly.
Here’s what to expect during a professional roof inspection:
Interior Evaluation.Your contractor will assess the roof’s insulation and ventilation. They will check humidity levels and look for signs of mold growth and rot.
Exterior Evaluation. After the interior examination, your roof replacement contractor will go outside to inspect the roof surface. They will check for missing or broken shingles, as well as assess the flashing, gutters and other vital elements. Expect them to implement safety measures while they perform the inspection, especially when climbing the ladder and walking on your roof.
Workmanship Evaluation. A complete inspection will be performed on your roof to look for any flaws in the installation that could lead to leaks or other roof damage in the future. Inadequate flashing around roof penetrations, such as vent pipes, skylights and chimneys, is one of the major red flags that require an immediate fix.
Your roofer will present you with a written report of their detailed findings when the interior and exterior examinations are completed. Any symptoms of damage or wear to your roof will be noted, as well as the recommended course of action. If repairs are required, try to schedule them as soon as possible.
