What You Can Expect from a Roof Inspection
Our professional roof inspectors check for leaks, wear and tear, damage from debris, and other problems. Learn more about the following four facets of our professional roof inspections:
- Structural Inspection – Our inspector will check for signs of sagging and uneven roof planes and examine the condition of the fascia, soffit, and gutter system. Masonry chimneys will be inspected for cracks, damage to caps, and crumbling grout. Our inspectors can also check the venting in the attic because improper venting can cause heat and moisture to build up.
- Material Inspection – Our inspector will be looking for missing, loose, or curling shingles, as well as moss, stains, rust, and missing fasteners or flashing. We will also check seals and rubber boots around vent pipes to look for deterioration or gaps.
- Interior Inspection – Roof leaks damage the inside of your home, so our inspector will check out your interior ceilings, attic, and interior walls, looking for water stains, rot, and mold.
- Workmanship Inspection – We will check for any problems related to your initial roof installation that could lead to an increased risk of leaks or other issues. Incorrect flashing can be a red flag.
Professional Inspections vs. Homeowner Inspections
The average homeowner can spot an obvious roof problem, including flapping or missing shingles. However, many other types of roof damage are not visible to the untrained eye. That’s why it’s so critical to hire our trained professionals to provide a roof inspection for you. Older roofs need frequent roof inspections to ensure nothing is going wrong and catch problems early before becoming more costly and significant. For newer roofs that show no signs of interior leaks, perform visual inspections from the ground and check your attic for leaks.
When to Schedule Your Roof Inspection
Most homeowners recognize it’s time for a roof inspection after a hailstorm or other significant storm in the Houston area. However, that shouldn’t be the only time you schedule a roof inspection. It’s crucial to have your roof inspection in the fall before the cold weather. It becomes challenging for new roof shingles to seal down properly if it’s too cold outside. Performing repairs on icy roofs can also be dangerous. Some roof repairs should be started in the fall and finished in the spring. If you aren’t sure if you need a roof inspection, contact our team to find out.
