Roof inspections are crucial to the performance and longevity of your roofing system. Doing these routine checks enables you to detect problems at an early stage and apply solutions that will keep your roof from failing or having recurring issues. Furthermore, it’s highly recommended to have a professional do this for you as they can ensure a thorough inspection of your roof. Here are four major components of roof inspections.
When checking the structural integrity of your roof, your contractors will likely look for uneven roof planes and sagging. You can also expect them to pay close attention to the soffit, fascia, gutters and chimney. They will also check your attic ventilation and make sure that there is adequate ventilation to prevent heat and moisture buildup.
With regards to materials, your roofer will watch out for loose, missing or curling shingles. They will also check for missing flashing or fasteners as well as rust. Additionally, they will ensure that the rubber boots and seals around the vent pipes have no gaps or are not showing signs of deterioration. Any problem or damage to a roofing component can result in a leaking roof or other worse issues.
This part of the inspection looks into the quality of installation or repair done on your roofing. Shoddy work on your roof can lead to a number of problems and roof damage.
Your roofer will have to inspect the interior, too, specifically the attic, interior walls and interior ceilings. They will have to watch out for mold, rot, water stains and other signs of water infiltration.
