Roof Inspections Are a Good Idea

December 31st, 1969 6:00 PM

We’re roofers. So, naturally we think having an annual roof inspection is a good idea…and with our harsh climate, it should be done at least twice a year—Spring/Fall. In the end, it is okay if you do the inspection, but if you don’t we can manage it for you.  Either way, here is what to look for when doing an inspection from the inside of your home.

1)    Places where the roof deck is sagging
2)    Signs of water damage or leaking
3)    Dark Spots
4)    Seeing outside light through the roof

When outside the home, here are some things to look out for:

1)    Visually look for cracked, torn, bald or missing shingles
2)    Scan the roof for loose material or wear around chimneys, vents, pipes or other penetrations
3)    Watch out for a lot shingle granules in the gutters—it can look like sand.
4)    Check for signs of moisture, rot or mold.
5)    Make sure gutters and downspouts are securely fastened.
6)    Check that all bath, kitchen and dryer vents go entirely outside of your home, not just into the attic space.
