Roof Inspections: What They Are and Why You Need One

roof inspections

Why get a roof inspection? We all go to the doctor for checkups because we want to get a picture of our health before health issues have a chance to arise. While it’s common for people to take this approach to their bodily health, far too many homeowners skip important examinations of the various components of their houses, especially when they’re out of sight.

Your home’s roofing is the front line of defense against Mother Nature’s fury, which is why it’s a good idea to get a regular roof inspection from a trusted Rochester roofer. Here’s a look at the process and a few of the benefits you’ll get from one of our inspections.

Roof Inspection: Inside

Upon arrival, we’ll start with a thorough examination of your roofing from the inside. One of our technicians will go up into the attic and check for obvious signs of damage such as holes, water damage, or evidence of animal incursion. While we’re up there, we’ll also make sure you’re getting the most out of your roof by inspecting a few different areas:

  • Quantity and condition of insulation
  • Mold, mildew, and other evidence of water damage
  • Ventilation to keep the air flowing smoothly

Roof Inspection: Outside

With an accurate picture of the interior’s condition, our roof inspector heads outside to check for wear and tear caused by years of wind, rain, and snow. Roofing is made up of many different components and our inspector will make a determination of the structure’s overall integrity by examining several strategic points:

  • Condition of shingles
  • Integrity of flashing
  • Chimney surfaces
  • Ice dams
  • Leaks

Based on the findings of both inside and outside roof inspections, we’ll present a report detailing the overall health of your roof and determine a plan of action. We’ll point out any emergency situations in need of immediate attention and help you prioritize each project by importance.
