A crucial aspect of roof maintenance is routine inspections. Roof inspections can help prevent minor problems like leaks from developing into severe ones that could compromise your roofing system. You can better prepare for a roof inspection by knowing what happens during the process and what to expect from your contractor’s report.
Here are four things you can expect during a professional roof inspection.
1. Interior Inspection
The roofers will access your attic to look for signs of water infiltration. Typically, they check for mold and water stains and examine the ventilation in the space.
2. Structural Inspection
The framework, soffits, fascia and gutters are checked during this part of the inspection. They will also examine the gutters and look out for excessive shingle granules. They’ll check the protrusions on your roof, such as chimneys and vent pipes, for signs of leaks or deterioration. Roofers also watch out for sagging or uneven roof planes.
3. Material Inspection
The roofer will examine the visible parts of your roof, such as the shingles, flashing and fasteners. They typically search for indications of wear, including eroded granules, blistering, corrosion, rot and more.
4. Workmanship Inspection
Installation mistakes can remain unnoticed for a long time. That is why your roofer needs to check for any installation errors like poor flashing. If your roof has a workmanship warranty, you might be able to get these issues repaired at no extra charge.
