What Happens During a Roof Inspection?

What Happens During a Roof Inspection?As a homeowner it is up to you to stay on the lookout for potential or existing problems. One of the main areas of your house that needs to be checked on regularly is the roof. If you're not an experienced roofer it would be wise to get the help of a professional for any roofing related needs, including annual inspections. Scheduling an inspection following a major weather event such as hard rain or exceptional winds, or if you notice any signs of a possible roof leak or other roof damage, will allow a roofer to determine if there is damage and to what extent. They'll often look for the following types of issues.

Loose or Broken Shingles - A roofer will check for blistered, splitting or curling shingles.

Missing Shingles - Missing shingles will certainly lead to water leak.

Exposed Nails - Unsecure nails can lead to leaks in the roof because they can allow water to seep under shingles.

Sagging Roof Line - A dip in the roof line is a sign of water damage that is causing structural issues for the home.

Damaged Roof Penetration Areas - Chimneys, vents, skylights and other areas where there are roof penetrations or openings will be assessed for potential damage as these areas are often subject to problems after storms.

Natural Debris - A buildup of leaves and other natural can cause damage to roofing areas since it can allow water to pool.

Overflow of Gutter Water - Overflowing water from your home's gutters indicates that water is probably seeping into the roof deck, allowing the wood to become wet and weak.
