When homeowners neglect their roofing system until the first sign of trouble appears, they could already be facing unwanted structural issues, mold growth and other serious problems. Save yourself from more complicated issues and costly repairs by having your roof inspected regularly. During an inspection, you can expect your assessor to check for problems in these areas of your roofing system:
Your inspector will search for uneven roof planes and signs of sagging, as well as examine the condition of the soffit, fascia and gutter system. In order to detect cracks, crumbling grout and damage to chimney caps, masonry chimneys should also be inspected at this time. The inspector may also check the venting in your attic to prevent heat and moisture buildup in your roof space.
The assessor will be looking for issues related to missing and damaged shingles, flashing and fasteners. One sign that the roof could be near the end of its life is when there is shingle aggregate that has settled in roof valleys or at the bottom of gutter downspouts. For gaps or deterioration, rubber boots and seals around vent pipes will also be checked.
When a roofing system is compromised, water slowly enters the house through roof leaks. That’s why you should expect that a roofing inspector will assess your interior ceilings, the attic and interior walls for water stains, mold growth and other signs of leaks.
The quality of roof installation or replacement plays a crucial role in your roof’s health. Any professional and meticulous inspector knows the importance of examining problems in workmanship that could increase the risk of damage.
