Roof Inspection

Roof inspections are an important part of home maintenance. While a visual roof inspection performed by the homeowner themselves might be enough when the roof is new and no extreme weather episodes have taken place, a more in-depth roof inspection should be conducted by a roof inspector every year to ensure that everything is in proper order.

How often should you have your roof inspected?

It is a good idea to have your roof inspected every year to ensure that there are no problems. Regular roof inspections can help prolong the life of your roof, and allow you to catch any potential problems before they become too serious.

Ideally, a roofing inspection of the entire roof should be scheduled in the springtime when the weather is mild. This way, any potential roofing issues that are found can be addressed before the harsh weather conditions of winter set in. However, if you live in an area with a warm climate, regular roof maintenance can be performed any time of year since the weather is relatively mild all year round.

If your roof has been damaged by bad weather, it is important to have a proper roof inspection done as soon as possible, preferably by a professional roof inspector who knows exactly what to look for in this type of situation.

What to expect from a roof inspection

A roof inspection should last around an hour, depending on the roof type and its size. Roofing inspectors will look at a number of different things. They will examine the roofing materials to make sure that they are in good condition and not starting to wear down. They will also check for any weather damage signs or damage caused by age.

Roof inspectors focus mainly on problems that could affect the roof’s longevity. They will make sure all the roofing materials are in good condition and properly installed. If there are any problems with the roofing materials or with the installation, the roof professional will be able to identify them and recommend a course of action.

A professional roof inspection includes a visual inspection of the roof surface for obvious signs of damage, as well as a roof penetration check. A roof penetration check is where the inspector checks for any potential water infiltration points, such as roof vents, chimneys, and skylights.

Routine roof inspections performed by All-in-1 Roofs professional roofers include:

  • Looking for damage such as missing or broken shingles, cracked tiles, and dented flashing
  • Looking for signs of roof leaks

  • Assessing the condition of the roof ventilation system
  • Examining the roof drainage system to ensure it is functioning properly
  • Checking the gutters and downspouts
  • Examining the condition of the roof insulation
  • Inspecting the attic, skylights, and chimney
