What to Expect from a Roof Inspection
The roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It shields you, your loved ones and your valuables from the weather, keeping all safe and protected. In order to continue providing you with protection, the roof needs to be in good condition; however, since it is exposed to so many elements, it can easily become damaged. For that reason, having your roof inspected annually is a wise idea.
If you’ve never had one before, here’s a look at what you can expect during roof inspections:
- A roof inspector will examine the overall appearance of the roof, including its interior and its exterior. Doing so will indicate if there are any signs of deterioration or damage.
- The ceiling will be checked for signs of leaks or cracks.
- The condition of the gutters, drains, chimney, vents and fascia will be examined.
- If you have skylights, they will be inspected to ensure that there isn’t any problem with leakage.
- The condition of the shingles will be examined to see if they are that are broken, curled or missing.
- Flashing points will be checked to see if they are damaged or missing.
