What a Professional Roof Inspection Covers

A professional inspection is the first and crucial step to ensure your roof remains sturdy and lasts long. Though you can do your visual inspection yourself, leaving the actual task to a professional is still a good idea, as they’ll be doing so thoroughly and get a clearer, more accurate description of your roof’s actual condition. Read on as Jack The Roofer shares what is covered in a professional roof inspection.

Assessing Roofing Materials

The first aspect of a professional roof inspection involves evaluating the condition of roofing materials. Whether your roof has asphalt shingles, clay tiles or standing seam metal panels, expect them to look for any signs of wear and tear, including cracks, missing pieces, and any signs of moss or algae growth that could indicate moisture problems.

Checking for Leaks and Water Damage

Leaks and water damage are among the most common issues uncovered during roof inspections. The pros methodically check the roof for any signs of water penetration, which includes inspecting the attic, ceilings, and walls for water stains or mold growth.

Inspecting the Roof’s Structural Components

A professional inspection also entails a thorough examination of the roofing structure. The framework that makes up the roof, including the rafters, trusses, and decking, are examined to ensure there are no sagging or integrity issues. Making sure the roof’s structural integrity is intact is crucial in preventing significant damage, especially in this part of Colorado where heavy snow can take a toll on old roofing systems.

Evaluating the Gutters, Vents, and Chimneys

A roof inspection won’t be complete without giving the rest of the components like the gutters, vents and chimneys the proper attention they deserve. They’re closely examined to ensure they are securely attached, free of blockages, and functioning correctly. The gutters, in particular, must not be sagging and are free of debris, so there would be no water backup that could increase the chances of ice dam formation during the colder months.
