Whether it’s rain, hail, or snow, the roof is your home’s first line of defense against any kind of weather. It’s important to have your roof checked regularly by one of the professional roofing and insulation companies so you can be sure that your roof is in good condition. This is also done so you can immediately spot and repair any damage that it may have sustained. A professional roof inspector fully understands that a solid roof helps keep you and your family safe and secure, so here’s what they’ll do when they check yours out.
Structural Inspection – Your roof will be inspected for any visible signs of uneven roof planes and sagging. Masonry chimneys will be inspected for any sign of cracks, crumbling grout and other damage to their chimney caps. They’ll also take a closer look at the condition of the soffit, fascia, and gutter system. Your roof’s interiors will be inspected as well, especially the attic’s ventilation. Any sign of improper venting can lead to heat and moisture buildup, which deteriorates the roof’s inner structure prematurely.
Material Inspection – This means your roof will be inspected for loose, missing, or curling shingles, as well as stains, rust, and moss, and missing fasteners and flashing. If, for instance, some shingle aggregate is found settled in your roof’s valleys or on the ground at the bottom of the gutter downspouts, then it usually means that your home may need a roof replacement soon. The roof will also be checked for any gaps or deterioration at the rubber boots and seals around the vent pipes.
Workmanship Inspection – Your roof will be examined for problems in workmanship that can potentially lead to possible roof damage such as water leaks in the future. This includes inspecting whether the flashing around roof penetrations, especially on skylights, vent pipes, and chimneys are properly installed. Any sign of improper installation can give way to unwanted water penetration and other issues, so it must be repaired immediately.
