Getting a professional roofing inspection can ensure that your roof is strong and ready to protect the interior of your home. By scheduling a roofing inspection, you’re taking the necessary steps to keep your roof in good condition and identify problems as early as possible. But what, exactly, happens during a roofing inspection?
Although different roofing companies may have different specific procedures, keep reading to find out what you can expect during a typical roofing inspection.
- Step One: Initial Consultation. Before the roofing inspection begins, your inspector will likely want to discuss the details of your roof, like its age, last known maintenance, and any problems you’ve noticed.
- Step Two: Exterior Inspection. The inspector will generally start with a visual inspection of the exterior of your roof, checking the flashing, roofing material, eaves, and gutters for signs of damage or age. They’ll make note of any evidence they find, such as cracks, peeling, water stains, or other damage.
- Step Three: Interior or Attic Inspection. Your inspector will evaluate the interior of your roofing or the attic if it is accessible. They’ll check for signs of damage like water stains, rotting wood, mold growth, or other problems, as well as inspect the ventilation and insulation to ensure they’re in good condition.
- Step Four: Reporting & Recommendations. After your roofing inspection, the inspector will put together a report that outlines any damage or cause for concern that they encountered, along with recommendations for fixing the issues.
