A roof inspection is an inspection, performed by a professional roofing company, to determine the condition of the roof. We recommend having a roof inspection every two years for your normal maintenance needs. Generally, a roof inspection is carried out with a visual inspection of all aspects of the roofing construction, from both the interior and exterior of the structure.
Objective of a roof inspection:
- To determine if the roof system is performing according to its intended function
- To identify signs of weakness, deterioration or hazard
- To identify needed repair
What we look for:
- General Roof Conditions (debris, drainage, physical damage, structural deformation)
- Flat Roofs (condition of coating, granular loss, punctures, cracks, ponding, blistering)
- Sloped Roofs (condition of surface, deformed edges, granular loss, metal corrosion, missing/cracked tiles or shingles)
- Roof Features (Fascia, Soffit, Flashing, Gutters/Drains, Skylights, Chimneys/Vents, Control Zone Access)
- Exterior Wall Surfaces (Staining, Surface Deterioration, Deformed Finish)
- Interior Wall Surfaces (Cracks, Staining, Leaks, Deformed Finishes, Seasonal Change)
The failure to find and correct minor roof deterioration in the earliest stages is probably the greatest cause of premature roof problems. Roof repair need not be extensive or costly if proper roof inspections are carried out on a regular basis.
