Understandably, your roof will need repair eventually. Before hiring your contractor, however, it’s a good idea to understand he the ins and outs of inspection. Your roof’s integrity matters, and a solid roofing inspection can make the difference between a high-quality job and the need for return visits.
What’s Involved in an Inspection?
A roofing inspection covers a few areas. First, your provider will conduct a full interior roof inspection, checking your building’s attic for proper insulation, ventilation, and structural integrity. Then, they’ll examine the area for moisture and mold. Your ceilings, too, will be examined for any problem areas.
Onto the Exterior
Once your building’s interior has been checked, your provider will examine your building’s exterior. When your business’s exterior roofing is examined, providers will go up on the roof, checking it for wear and tear while advising you about the overall state of your roof.
In most cases, this inspection will pinpoint any ice dams, leaks, roof shingle issues, flashing problems and needed insulation work. Dormers, side walls, valleys eaves, and rakes are all examined, so as to make sure the entirety of your building’s roofing is intact.
Establishing a Repair or Replacement Plan
Once your roofing has been inspected, you’ll be guided towards a solution capable of fixing any problems. Your professional providers will target any improper flashing, creating a plan to make sure your building’s underlayment is fixed to repel ice and water.
Then, any discovered leaks will be examined closely. It’s possible your building’s water isn’t draining properly because of clogged gutters. If this is the case, you may need to establish a cleaning plan. Likewise, missing shingles can create issues for business owners. If a building is missing shingles, rot and mold can collect. It’s a good idea to focus on the overall structure of your building’s roofing before targeting specific areas.
