Having your roof professionally inspected is a good way to learn about current issues and potential roofing problems so you can address both before an emergency arises. A roof inspection performed by a certified roofing contractor will ensure that your roof remains in good condition and can even help save money on replacement fees.
When you make an appointment for a professional roof inspection, an experienced roofing repair company like Pawcatuck Roofing Co., Inc. will check your roof for signs of wear and tear, wind damage, leaks and problems that may have occurred during repairs or shingle installation. The examinations for each of these problems make up the four parts of a roof inspection.
The Four Parts of a Roof Inspection
- Structural Inspection: An inspector, possibly from a roofing repair company, will look for uneven roof planes or signs of sagging. This includes inspection of masonry chimneys for any sign of crumbling grout, cracks, and other damage. Your roof’s gutter system and interiors will also be inspected, including the attic’s ventilation.
- Material Inspection: The inspector will check for loose, missing, or curling shingles. They will check for these issues efficiently, as well as rust, stains, and missing components such as fasteners and flashing.
- Interior Inspection: This is done inside your home to check the ceilings, attic, and interior walls for water stains, mold, or other signs that water may be leaking inside from the roof.
- Workmanship Inspection: Finally, your roof will be examined whether it was built properly or with poor workmanship. For this, the inspector will carefully examine your roof for possible workmanship errors that could increase the risk of leaks or other damage to avoid a roof replacement.
