If you have lived in your home for a lengthy amount of time, then you already know that a roof inspection is something that should be performed periodically. A roof inspection is important to ensure roof safety or confirm the need for repair if something is out of place.
For new homeowners, the thought of a roof inspection can be alien and intimidating. Before you schedule your first roof inspection, it is a great plan to go into the process knowing what you and your family are getting into.
Be Prepared for Exterior and Interior Roof Inspection
In order to receive an accurate assessment of your roof, your inspection will definitely have to be a thorough process. Note that this means there will be an interior and exterior inspection of your home as a whole. As far as the interior inspection process goes, your certified inspector will want to examine your attic and assess its ventilation and current insulation.
The full exterior inspection will involve the inspector inspecting the top of your roof for any wear and tear.
What Will My Inspector Look For?
Throughout the inspection, your roof inspector will have some specific aspects of damage or disrepair that signal the need for roof replacement. Knowing what they will be looking for upon inspection can also give you a head start on working with them on a concrete repair plan.
When a roof replacement or repair is in question, a professional inspector will look for:
- Poor flashing
- Leaks or water damage on the ceiling of the home
- Rot, mold, or dark water spots on the roof
- Structural damage that could mean a sagging roof or literal holes
- Loose and missing shingles
Most of these problems are noticeable to the naked eye, therefore, you should be able to know when it is time to reach out to a licensed roof professional.
Need Repairs? We Develop a Plan With You
Upon completion of your inspection, the roofers will discuss any repairs or replacements that need to be completed. At this point, you will both develop a plan together, discuss your situation and decide if any roof repairs ultimately need to be completed sooner than later.
Once these details have been hashed out, the inspector will give you a detailed estimate on the repairs based on the extent of the damage to your home. In this estimate, your price is based on roof damage, the cost of the materials to be used on the repairs and labor.
