As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to ensure that every component of your home is well-kept and performs great. One of the most important parts of your home is the roof as it protects you from the elements and speaks a lot about your home. As such, you would want to have a professional inspection to ensure that everything is going well with your roof.
Here’s what you should expect during a professional roof inspection.
Why Should I Have My Roof Inspected by a Pro?
It’s difficult to assess the full extent of your roof’s condition just by simply looking at it from the ground. Sure, you can see how well your soffits are doing or even the eaves or first few shingles that are within your sight. But what about the view beyond that? You might think of grabbing a ladder and climbing up the roof on your own.
Granted, you can do it on your own, but there are a lot of risks associated with inspecting your roof. You may not have all the proper safety apparel or inspection equipment to make a full assessment of your roof. And, even if you have all the necessary equipment, do you even know for what you’re looking? Everything might appear fine on the surface, but it will take the trained eyes of a professional roofing inspector to spot underlying problems of your roof.
What to Expect From Professional Roof Inspections?
If you decide to have your roof inspected by professionals, they’ll be looking out for signs of roofing damage. Some of these signs include:
- Roof leaks
- Unusual wear and tear
- Damage from windblown debris
- Mold and mildew growth
- Incorrect shingle installation
- Shingle damage
Basically, a roof inspection gets broken into four parts: structure, interiors, materials and workmanship. Once all of these have been inspected, your inspector will then inform you of your roof’s condition and advise you on your recommended course of action afterward. You may need to have your roof repaired or replaced depending on the assessment.
