You will get piece of mind knowing that your roof is in good shape, or a professional recommendation if the roof is found to be faulty, all at no cost.

As a home owner you want to know about problems with your roof and how to fix them. You may already be aware of the problems such as leaks, torn off shingles, rusty flashings, exposed nails, etc, and simply need a professional opinion. Roofing inspections are designed to help you assess, evaluate, and plan a good or strategy to protect your roof from leaks, ice buildup and other hazards.

Our goal is to determine life expectancy of the roof during the home roof inspection. If it requires replacement we will let you know. If after a free roof inspection the roof is found to be in good condition, we will recommend repairs and a maintenance plan.

Roof Inspection Checklist

  • Blistered, curled, split and otherwise damaged shingles are a sign of an aging roof. Few shingles can be repaired, however if too many shingles are found damaged during a roof inspection service, it may be time to re-roof.
  • Exposed nails are sources of water leaks.
  • If shingles lack granular coating, it is a sign of wear and an aged roof.
  • Too many layers of shingles may create structural problems, as their weight doubles the pressure with each layer. It is not recommended to have more than 2 layers of asphalt shingles on your roof.

Flashing

  • Rusty metal is a sign a weakening roof. Flashing around chimney and vents must be well embedded. Loose flashing and corroded metal means trouble.
  • Flashing along dormer walls should be firmly in place, otherwise it may leak.
  • Metal flashing should be present in tact at valleys, ridges, roof penetrations, parapet walls and chimneys.
  • Nails of the same metal as flashing must be used in order to prevent corrosion (aluminum flashing with aluminum nails, copper flashing with copper nails, etc).

Gutters

  • A concentration of granules in the gutters found during roof inspection services maybe an indicator of worn off shingles. Asphalt shingles are covered with granules, which naturally come off with age, however a concentration of granules and dark patches of shingles is a sign of an old roof.
  • If the gutters are sagging or leaking, it is an indicator of a problem. Also, downspouts (pipes that go down) should be fixed firmly in place, directing water away from the foundation.
  • Gutters require periodical cleaning, preferably at least once a year. They need to stay free and free flowing.
  • Unless designed to drain over the roof edges, gutters should be installed at low points of the roof, at an appropriate angle.

Attic and Ventilation

  • Our roof consultant will look for signs of leaks such as dark stains in the attic interior, which indicate leaks. Leaks usually occur along valleys, chimneys, skylights and vents.
  • Dark, soft and wet spots found during roof consulting are signs of rotting, and damaged wood must be replaced. Dark, but firm spots may be signs of repaired leaks.
  • Rotten or sagging sheathing are signs of an old roof that requires reinstallation.
  • If light manages to get through the roof, it is a clear sign of a problem.
  • Attic must have ventilation to let both hot and cold air escape. Aggregate area of the vent openings should be 1/150 of the total area of the attic.
  • Pigeons, bats, raccoons, squirrels and other animals may cause damage to the attic and roofing. It is necessary do drive them away.
