What Can You Expect From a Professional Roof Inspection?

The roof of your home is one of the most important components of your home. It protects you from the weather elements, the hot summer rays, and pesky critters. Without a solid strong roof, the contents of your home are in jeopardy of destruction. A professional roof inspection is vital in making sure your home and family are safe.

Why is it important to get an inspection?

There are many reasons to have a quality roof inspection completed. They include:

  • To check for buckling, bent, or missing roofing material
  • To be prepared for hurricane season
  • To assess any damage after hurricane season
  • After a recent home purchase
  • A yearly inspection to minimize future complications

What happens during a roof inspection?

The qualified team will look for three different aspects before finalizing their report:

Structural Integrity

This part of the inspection will determine how well the roofing system is holding up. The inspector will look for rotted or cracked trusses, sagging ceilings, and check the condition of the soffit, fascia, and gutter system. Each of these components plays an important role in the durability and strength of your roof. They will also check the areas near your vents and skylights for areas of damage, or minimal caulking.

Material Inspection

The inspector will observe the quality of the roofing material. Depending on the type of roofing system on the home, different aspects are considered.

  • Asphalt Roofing system: buckling, split, bent shingles
  • Metal Roofing system: rusted fasteners, scratched or dented metal sheeting
  • Cedar roofing system: split cedar planks, rusty nails
  • Tile roofs: broken, deteriorating, missing, loose tiles
  • Slate Roofing system: moss buildup, leaks

The inspector will also look closely at the gutter system for proper drainage. Weakened joints of a gutter system can cause debris buildup which can create mold and mildew near the roof.

Interior Inspection

Checking the attic or upper rooms in a home, unseen from the rooftop, can give an explanation of what is occurring under the roofing material. Water damage is clearly noted due to brown, grey, or yellowing spots on the ceiling. This is an indication of rotten roof flooring and it must be addressed before more damage can occur. Mold and mildew can begin to grow in damp ceiling areas, potentially creating health concerns for the homeowner.
