What to Expect During a Roofing Inspection

Last updated 6 years ago

First-class roof repair companies, like Fortress Roofing, always provide a comprehensive roof inspection. These detailed investigations ensure that a company’s repairs get to the heart of your roof’s problems. Review these inspection features to decide if your Salt Lake City roofer is providing you with a full service inspection:

·         Structure Review: Your roof inspection will begin with a visual scan of the roof’s overall state of repair. Technicians start by searching for evidence of sagging, shrinkage, and improper repairs. With a quick inspection from a distance, roofers can decide if your roof is safe to walk and work on. Next, your technician will perform a preliminary inspection from the top of your roof. This search will help the technician determine if your roof requires spot repairs or a full-on replacement.

·         Material Evaluation: Detailed inspections of roofing materials provide a bounty of information for roofers. By determining the cause of your roof damage, such as UV rays or moisture, a roofing professional can also make suggestions for the perfect replacement materials. Curling, for instance, reveals shingles that have lived past their service life. Lifetime shingles, such as GAF’s Architectural Series, would be the perfect replacement for shingles that have aged too quickly. Another common problem is blistering, which reveals that your roof has serious ventilation problems.

·         Interior Inspection: A proper roof inspection won’t end at your home’s exterior. True professionals scan every part of the home that might be impacted by roof issues. For instance, a peek into the attic can reveal extensive leak or ventilation issues. An outbreak of mold points to an influx of moisture from the outside. Inspectors will also check ceilings for evidence of small and steady leaks. These symptoms can point toward small gaps of flashing on your rooftop.

Don’t let small roofing problems turn into costly home repairs. Instead, contact Fortress Roofing at (801) 205-6100 as soon as you suspect a leak.
