As a homeowner, you know how important your roof is for your home and all that it holds. A complete or partial roof replacement and repair can be very costly. An annual roof inspection is a great idea. Roof inspections can help to identify potential problems early, before they cause damage to your house or roof, and allow you to fix them before it’s too late.
Most homeowners are able to identify roof problems. Other forms of damage can be more difficult to spot, so it is important to get professional help. A roofing expert with the necessary knowledge and experience should inspect your roof. We guarantee a satisfied inspection with our highly trained staff. These are the items that we have listed.
We will check for signs of uneven or drooping roof planes and the condition of the gutter, fascia and soffit. In masonry chimneys, look out for cracks, rotting grout and damage to the chimney crowns. Also, we will inspect the ventilation in your attic. Incorrect venting can lead to heat accumulation and increased risk of ice dams at the edges.
We will search for missing flashing, fasteners, loose, or curled shingles. Shingle aggregate found in roof valleys and at the gutter downspouts’ bottom is a sign that the roof is reaching the end of its useful life. We will also inspect the rubber boots and seals around vent pipes for cracks or signs of deterioration.
Roof leaks can eventually lead to damage to your home. We’ll inspect for water spots, mildew and other signs of water intrusion in ceilings, attic and interior walls.
Also, we will inspect your roof for potential roof problems or future leaks. Poor flashing around roof penetrations like skylights, vent pipes, chimneys and skylights would be a red flag.
After the inspection, you will receive a detailed report about the condition of your roof, and, if needed, the repairs that are necessary to maintain it in top working order.
