If you are having problems with your roof, getting a roofing inspection is one of the best ways to identify the problem. Like our team at A Plus Roofing, many roofing contractors provide their customers with roofing inspections prior to doing work or as part of the quoting process. If you don’t know much about roofing, then the process of getting your roofing inspected can seem like a mystery to you. The following are a few components of the entire process.
Roofing Contractors Inspect Insulation
Your roof is a key player when it comes to your structure's insulation. As you may know, your roof helps keep your home warm or cool. As a result, when your roofing contractor inspects your roof, he or she will look to ensure that your roof is ventilated properly. If it’s not, he or she will make some recommendations for you to ensure that your roof is working hard for you.
Your Roof Is Inspected for Mold
Moisture and mold can be problematic when it comes to your roof. More than likely, where there is moisture, there will be mold. If mold is found in or around your roof, then your structure could be at jeopardy. Your roofing contractor will look for signs of mold and moisture. If they find mold while they are on your roof, they will work with you to develop a plan on mold remediation. If your roof has significant damage, your roof may be in need of a repair.
Leaks and Defective Shingles Are Sought Out
Another critical aspect of your roofing inspection is to ensure that your shingles are up to par. Shingles keep precipitation from getting into your home, which can cause mold. Ironically, leaks and mold are one of the main reasons homeowners contact roofing contractors. They’ve delayed much-needed roofing repairs until these repairs have become much more than a simple repair. If your roofing contractor determines that you have a leak, they will work with you to determine the best course of action for your roof. Often, leaks can be fixed by a simple repair, instead of getting your roof replaced altogether.
