A roof is one of the most important structures of your home and it’s often something that’s out of sight and out of mind until there’s a problem with it. If you suspect that there is an issue with your roof, contacting a roofing contractor as soon as possible to look at the extent of damage is a great way to save yourself a large bill for repairs. There are varying costs for inspections and often working with a more experienced contractor can come with a heavier price. Choosing a local roofer that might be inexperienced or unlicensed could lead you with a roofing inspection that was done in a rush format or incorrectly. Here are some of things that entail a proper roofing inspection.
Exterior And On Roof Inspection
Roofers will be looking to identify roofing materials that could be missing or broken. They’ll take a quick look around your property and look for the signs of debris on the ground as well as have a visual inspection of your roof. One of the final things that a roofer will do is actually get up on your roof or explore the roofing with a drone. They’ll be looking up close when they get up on your roof for missing or damaged flashing, organic debris between the tiles, water that could be pooling in some areas of your roof and more.
Roofers will also be inspecting the interior of your home to look for any drips or problem areas in your attic. They’ll often be looking for discoloration, wetness, sagging or stains in the walls and ceilings. A roofer that does not come into your home to take a look at pipes, ceilings or fireplaces is not completing a full inspection.
