What You Need to Know About Certified Roof Inspections

What You Need to Know About Our Certified Roof Inspections

Fixing or replacing a roof is probably the most expensive repair that a homeowner may have to face, with a full replacement costing upwards of thousands. Keeping close tabs on your roof is crucial for new homeowners, or any homeowners at that. It is very difficult to determine what type of condition your roof is in solely by just looking at it, which means that an inspection becomes entirely necessary. Keep reading to learn more about certified roof inspections and what they mean for your home.

What is a Certified Roof Inspection?

Simply put, a certified roof inspection is a statement of opinion by a licensed roof inspector. They will assess the roof to see if you must have any repairs done, and then estimate how many years of life the roof has left before certifying its inspection. If you must have repairs done, you will have to have them fixed before the certification is issued to you.

What Do Roof Inspectors Look For?

During a certified roof inspection, every inch of your roof is inspected, including each individual shingle. The materials used to build your roof are considered, as well as the age of the roof, roof pitch, the number of layers, and any previous roof repairs that may have been performed. Once the inspector has all of this information he can proceed with the actual inspection. He will then inspect the condition of the roofing materials, as well as ridges, caps, drip edges, drains, downspouts, gutters, roof pipes, chimneys, vents, and HVAC units, as well as any possible movement.

The basic purpose of a roof inspection is to inform you of any issues or repairs that are needed, and to determine the remaining life expectancy of your roof. Contact us today at Midwest Roofing for more information.
