What to Expect From Professional Roof Inspections

Inspections are an important part of roof maintenance. A roof inspector will be looking for leaks, mold and algae growth, wear and tear and other weather-related damage. Ultimately, a roof inspection is broken down into four facets: interior, structural, material and workmanship. One of the leading roofing companies in the area discusses them here.

Roof Inspections
  • Interior Inspection. Since moisture and leaks eventually wreak havoc on the inside of your home when left unchecked, the roof inspector will check the attic, ceilings and interior walls for stains and discoloration. Other signs that water is making its way into your home include rotting wood and mold-infested surfaces.
  • Workmanship Inspection. An inspector will examine your roof for issues primarily caused by substandard workmanship. Incorrect flashing around chimneys, skylights, or vents, for example, would be considered a red flag as it increases the risk of leaks and other forms of damage in the future.
  • Material Inspection. A thorough roof inspection also includes the assessment of materials. Roofers look for curling or missing shingles, missing nails and fasteners, moss growth, corrosion on metal components and more. An excessive buildup of shingle granules in gutters or at the bottom of downspouts is also an indication that your roof is nearing the end of its life.
  • Structural Inspection. During a structural inspection, the inspector will check the roof for signs of sagging, masonry chimneys for cracks or crumbling grout, and improper ventilation that could lead to heat and moisture accumulation. The condition of the soffit and fascia is also examined along with the gutter system. Any issues that increase the chances of ice dams forming at the roof’s edge are also inspected.
