THE IMPORTANCE OF ROOF INSPECTIONS 

Most homeowners disregard the well-being of their roof until it starts showing signs of damage. Then it becomes a hassle and you end up spending more time and money on costly repairs or full replacements.

Your roof is one of your home's primary defenses against the incursion of the elements from the outside. It protects your family and belongings from rain, sleet, hail, snow, and even the heat of the sun's rays throughout the year. Therefore, having regular roof inspections is an excellent way to ensure that your home's roof stays in good shape and avoid serious problems.

After all, it's always best to address any minor roof damage when a simple repairs or partial replacement of damage roof shingles can still do, rather than waiting too long, hoping that the problem will go away on its own.

Even a tiny leak, when left alone for too long, can turn into thousands of dollars in damage from rot, mold, mildew, and more. At that point, a problem that could have been easily solved with a small roof repair will likely end up costing you a complete roof replacement.

Leaking roofs can wreak havoc on your home, so we encourage you to take the proper steps to get a roof inspection and ensure it does not get to a state of disrepair!

Check for Storm Damage

If you experience regular storms in your area, you’d already know the damage and destruction high winds and rain can cause to a roof. And although storm damage is inevitable, you can surely do something to minimize this damage.

Even if you think your roof is in good shape, pre-storm roof inspections help are a good preventive measure to fix any issues that can lead to leaks, water intrusion, or improper drainage. Similarly, after a major storm hits your neighborhood, you may want to have a roofing specialist check your roof and give you a quote for necessary repairs.

If the home inspector determines that your roof is badly damaged and recommends you filing an insurance claim, having an inspection report and a repair or replace estimate from a licensed roofing contractor before contacting your home insurance company will definitely help your case. Even though insurance companies send their adjuster to look at the damage, it's always best to have more than one professional opinion to make sure you receive what you need to address your roofing problem the right way.

Fix Weathering Damages

Your roof withstands severe weather conditions and hence becomes more susceptible to damage. Even the tiniest crack can lead to water damage that can affect the structural integrity of your entire house. A roof inspection will make sure these defects are fixed before it gets worse.

Homeowners are confused about how often they should get their roofs inspected. The answer varies according to your unique circumstances, the type of roofing materials you have used, and the weather condition in your neighborhood. 

If you’re already seeing signs of damage like discoloration, missing/broken shingles you should call a roofing company immediately. It’s also advisable to get your roof inspected before a heavy storm season. Otherwise, it’s most ideal to get one roof inspection per year.

The Roof Inspection Process 

During roof inspections, a professional roofer will inspect the roof from the inside and outside. The inspector will usually start by looking at your ceiling for water leaks or damage, then navigate the perimeter of your property, reviewing the roof overhangs and eaves for signs of termite damage and wood rot.

Some roofing companies provide their roof inspectors with a drone to perform aerial roof inspections and take pictures of your roof from above that can be then used for insurance company paperwork. When you call Pro Roofing & siding, our roof inspector will fly a drone over your property, to inspect the following:

  • Missing shingles
  • Clogged roof valley
  • Damaged flashing
  • Growing vegetation and storm debris

What to Expect During a Roof Inspection?

Roofing professional will look for missing, curled, broken or loose shingles. These can expose your roof to future water leaks.

In case of granule loss around the shingles, the inspector will check the gutters and downspout for loosened granules that might lead to water clogging.

In case of granule loss around the shingles, the inspector will check the gutters and downspout for loosened granules that might lead to water clogging.

Structural Inspection

This part of the inspection includes observation of the structural components of your roof. The roof inspector will look for signs of uneven roof planes, sagging, damaged soffit, fascia, and gutter system. Roof inspectors would also like to complement their assessment with an interior home inspection to check attic vents and look for roof penetrations.

Leak Inspection

A water leak is a common problem faced by homeowners. When left untreated it can compromise the structural integrity of your house, lead to mold and mildew, and pose a fire threat. 

The hardest part of this inspection is to actually find the exact leak. In most cases, water travels a distance before dripping through the roof. So the roofer will look for signs of water damage like discoloration, mold, or dampness to find the problem area.

Workmanship Inspection

They’ll check whether the shingles, flashing, chimneys, and vents are installed properly. It would be a close inspection that’ll include examining the quality of installation like the nail pattern and shingle positioning.

What to Do After The Roof Inspection is Complete?

Once the inspection is complete, the roofer will give you a roof inspection report. You can use this report to determine your next course of action. Do you need small repairs or a roof replacement? Does the damage require immediate attention or is it something that can wait for a year or two? Do you need to get your insurance company involved? This detailed report will help you make an informed decision.

Why Do I Need to Call a Professional Roof Inspector?

As a homeowner, it’s enticing to save time and carry out the roof inspection yourself. You might be able to find some obvious signs of roof damage from the interior of your home like leaks coming from the attic or water stains on your ceiling and walls.

Likewise, you could spot other signs of damage from the ground like fallen shingles and clogged gutters. However, it takes an experienced eye to inspect your roof up close.

That's way, we’d always recommend you to get in touch with us to schedule a free roof inspection. Our roof inspector can perform a thorough inspection and offer an honest feedback about the condition of the roof on your home along with a free estimate for repair work.
