A roof inspection is a vital part of any roofing repair or maintenance project. A thorough inspection by a certified, trained professional can yield very important information about the health of your roof. This information can be valuable to have when making decisions about the types of repairs to be made on your roof. Insurance companies typically require this information as well, to decide what repairs they want to pay for, and how much money they are willing to allot toward those repairs. Making sure you schedule an inspection before anything else will make the rest of the roof repair/maintenance process much smoother.
What does a roof inspection entail?
There are some variations to the process based on the company or inspector, but the main things a professional inspector will cover are:
- Checking for any weather-related damage. This ranges from storm damage to the effects of weathering that accumulate over a long span of time.
- Checking for compromises in the roof’s construction, including leaks, punctures, rotted and/or rusting materials, etc.
- Determining the overall health and condition of the roof and comparing it to the roof condition of roofs that are around the same age.
- Making sure that the roof is in compliance with government requirements and regulation.
