Regular roof inspections can greatly improve the performance and lifespan of your roofing system because they allow you to identify and address small problems before they turn into costly roof leaks. In this blog post, A1 Siding & Roofing, the leading roofing and siding contractor in our local area, explains what you should expect from a professional roof inspection.
The roof inspector will look for shingle stains, moss, rust and missing flashing or fasteners. They will also look for missing, curling or loose shingles. The inspector will check the roof valleys, the ground and the gutters for shingle aggregate. Large amounts of aggregate can indicate that the roof is nearing the end of its service life. The inspector will also look for signs of deterioration and gaps on the rubber boots and seals around the vent pipes.
During the structural inspection, the roof inspector will look for signs of sagging and uneven roof planes. They’ll then assess the condition of your soffit, gutter system and fascia. The chimney will also be inspected for damage to chimney caps, cracks and crumbling grout. The roofing and siding installation inspector will also check the attic for venting issues.
Workmanship Inspection and Interior Inspection
The roofing inspector will examine your roof for signs of workmanship mistakes, which greatly increase the risk of roof leaks. Examples include incorrect flashing around the roof penetrations and improper nailing. A thorough roof inspector will also check your attic and interior ceilings and walls for signs of water damage.
