What We Will Check During A Residential Roof Inspection
During a residential roof inspection, the following elements are typically examined to assess the roof's condition and identify any issues:
Roofing material: The type of material used for the roof, such as shingles, tiles, metal sheets, or membrane, is inspected for signs of wear, damage, or aging.
Overall condition: The general condition of the roof is evaluated, including any visible sagging, warping, or unevenness.
Roofing components: All components of the roof, such as flashings, vents, chimneys, skylights, gutters, and downspouts, are inspected for damage, proper installation, and functionality.
Shingles or tiles: Individual shingles or tiles are inspected for cracks, curling, missing pieces, or signs of granule loss.
Roof leaks: Any visible signs of water stains, dampness, or mold growth on the roof or in the attic are checked, indicating potential leaks.
Roof decking: The condition of the roof decking, typically made of plywood or OSB, is assessed for rot, water damage, or structural issues.
Roof penetrations: Penetrations such as vents, chimneys, and pipes are inspected for proper sealing, flashing, and secure attachment.
Roof slope and drainage: The slope of the roof is checked to ensure proper water drainage, with no areas prone to pooling or standing water.
Sealants and caulking: Any sealants or caulking used on the roof are examined for cracks, gaps, or deterioration that could compromise the roof's waterproofing.
Attic inspection: If accessible, the attic is inspected for proper insulation, ventilation, signs of water damage, and structural support.
Roof maintenance: The previous maintenance history of the roof, such as repairs, replacements, or installations, is reviewed to assess its overall condition.
Safety concerns: Safety hazards, such as loose or damaged roof components, exposed nails, or unstable access points, are identified.
