Your roof is made to withstand the elements and even some major weather changes. The great thing is that a roof inspection can find any damage that could be happening from them and give you an estimate on the repairs that may need to take place. If your roof was not installed correctly it may not last the entire time that is was intended and it may require repairs or replacement sooner than expected. If you have some roof damage that goes undetected it cannot only cause damage the roof but can cause some damage to your home as well. The best way to ensure that any damage is found out is to have your roof inspected by a professional. You can also do an inspection on your own but the untrained eye may not see what an experienced roofer can see. Nickerson Roofing lists what you can expect when you have your roof inspected by a professional roofer.
What a Full Interior Roofing Inspection Entails
You may think that the roof is just outdoors and that you only need to climb a ladder to get the look that you need. That is just not true! You need to get a good look at the underside of the roof to look for signs that there is damage. The interior inspection is when the roofing company goes up in the attic and looks around the structure for damage. They are looking for signs of leaks that could be in the form of mold or mildew. They also will look at the ventilation and the insulation to be sure that there is not an issue with either of them. The inspection needs to be done on a regular basis by a professional that knows what to look for. This is an area that can have some serious damage that will easily go undetected.
Visually Inspect Exterior Roof
The exterior part of the roof is an area that you can see from the top of a ladder. The problem is that if you are not sure what you are looking for there are many items that can be missed. One missed area of concern can lead to more damage to your roof and your home. The professional roofer will be able to spot shingles or tiles that are damaged or broken that need to be repaired. They will also inspect the flashing that is usually found around the chimney and vents. If they are missing or not installed correctly they can be the cause of a leak. They will also look at the gutter and downspout system to make sure that they are working properly and draining the water to a safe area. The other thing is that the roofing contractor will look at the overall health of the entire roof and take into consideration the age of the roof as well.
