Roofing Inspection Checklist & Report Letter in Truckee, CA; As Preventive Maintenance to Detect Roof Leaks Before Emergency Repairs are Needed!

As a homeowner, you are probably not even aware that over one third of all homeowner’s insurance claims revolve around roofing issues. A leaky roof for example is not only a source of annoyance, it can also lead to a wide range of problems including mold (which can cause health issues along with structural problems) and electric issues which can result in fire hazards. A professional roof inspection by Nickerson Roofing can detect any potential issues before they become serious and potentially life threating problems.

Is a Professional Roofing Inspection Necessary in the North Lake Tahoe Basin of CA?

The experts at Nickerson Roofing recommend professional roof inspections for three reasons – to determine if any repairs are needed, to estimate the remaining lifespan of your roof; and to issue a certificate of inspection which is especially beneficial if you are in the process of putting your existing home on the market for sale. If you are on the opposite end of the spectrum and you are interested in purchasing a new home, your Nickerson roofing inspection specialist can give you an estimate on how long you can reasonably expect the current roof to last.

DIY Roof Inspection VS Hiring a Professional Roofer

A roof inspection should never be attempted as a DIY project. Walking around on your roof is dangerous, for you and the integrity of your roof. At Nickerson Roofing our roofing inspectors are knowledgeable and have the proper equipment at hand to professionally inspect your roof. Our inspectors are trained, experienced and qualified to spot any potential issues that may not be immediately evident to a layperson for example hail damage that can lead to leaks

When is the Best Time for My Roof to be Inspected?

The knowledgeable experts at Nickerson Roofing recommend the following three occasions to have your roof inspected:
1. Following inclement weather, such as a hurricane or hailstorm to make sure that your roof is undamaged. And if damage to your roof has occurred, to help you make an insurance claim to cover the cost of any repairs.
2. When you are preparing your home for sale, and/or when you are interested in upgrading and purchasing a new property.
3. As part of your routine household preventive maintenance plan.

Typical Roof Warranty Require Regular Roofing Inspections

You should never assume that your roof will be issue-free during the entire warranty period. Many homeowners make the mistake of relying on their warranty to cover expenses should they experience an issue with the roof during the warranty period. Carefully read the fine print. It is not uncommon for a warranty to stipulate that a regular roof inspection conducted by a professional roofing company be part of the maintenance required in order to fulfill the terms of the warranty.

What Will My Roof Inspector Look for?

Your Nickerson Roofing professional will arrive with a detailed checklist of the items that will be evaluated including:
General condition of all roofing material. For example wear and tear, damage, curling, missing or loose shingles or other roofing materials.
Exterior structure of your roof. For example any sagging, deterioration, straining, damaged or rotting flashing, soffit or fascia, clogged gutters or inadequate roof pitch.
Interior condition of your roof. Specifically cracks, staining and dampness, and roof or window leaks.
Inspection of the ceiling under your attic. With attention to cracks, stains and moisture.
Your Nickerson Roofing expert will also evaluate and examine any recent repairs to ensure the repairs are functioning correctly. Once complete, your inspector will issue you a written report that notes any issues along with a recommendation for repairs, replacement and follow-up.
