Why You Should Get an Inspection
Inspections are very common - if not required - when it comes to real estate transactions. If you’re buying or selling a home, a home inspection service is often required by the mortgage company in order for the transaction to take place. In addition, some real estate property owners conduct a yearly roof inspection as part of their property maintenance plan. This is a very good idea because regular roof inspections and maintenance extend the useful life of any roof.
What Is Included in an Inspection of Your Roof
First, we come to the property and examine the overall appearance of the roof. This is performed by checking the exterior and then looking for any evidence of interior leaks or roof damage. During our inspection, we often take photos or video to create the report.
When on the roof, we look for degradation or any obvious damage to the surface and materials. This includes assessing the condition of flashing, drains, gutters, skylights, and chimneys. Usually, most problems occur where water collects and flows, such as valleys where different roof sections meet. Inside of the building, we look for ceiling cracks, water stains from previous leaks, and new leaks that have made the walls or ceiling damp in places.
