Did you know you should have your roof inspected twice a year to make sure it stays in good condition? You should also check your roof immediately after a storm, since storm damage often starts out small but tends to get worse with every storm if it isn’t addressed right away. If it’s been a while since your roof was professionally inspected, you may be wondering what to expect. While all companies are different, most professional roof inspections should check for the following:
Full Exterior Check
When someone comes to your house to perform a roof inspection in Daytona Beach, they should conduct a full exterior inspection. During the inspection, they should look for leaks, check the condition of your shingles, make sure flashing is in good condition and inspect the chimney for damage.
Full Interior Inspection
To perform a full interior roof inspection, the inspector will need to access your roof through the attic. Your ventilation and insulation should be assessed during the inspection process and the entire area should be checked for excessive moisture and mold. If either of these things are present, your roof most likely has a leak that will need to be located and repaired before further damage occurs.
If problems with your roof are detected, the inspector should provide you with a detailed repair plan for your review and approval. You should also be given a cost estimate for any services you need. If problems are minor, you may not need to schedule repairs right away. If you have major issues, it is wise to have them addressed immediately. The longer you wait to repair big problems, the more expensive repairs will likely become. A good roof inspector will answer any questions you may have without hesitation and will make sure you understand exactly what is needed to return your roof to good working condition.
