Should You Schedule A Roof Inspection?

With our experienced roof techs, there is no job too small or too big for us at Expressway.  We at Expressway Roofing and Chimney have all of your roof inspections covered! Anything from a full inspection to a quick one to make sure everything’s safe – you can rest easy knowing that the job will be done right the first time and on time. 

 

So when should you get your roof inspected? If you ask this question to other roofing companies, you may get a few different responses. We suggest having your roof inspected after all major storms or any other structure-affecting event. These inspections can catch damage that has been done to your roof – and prevent further damage. 

 

After a hailstorm or other significant weather event, most homeowners recognize the need for a thorough roof inspection to determine whether their roof suffered damage. But that shouldn’t be the only time you consider your roof’s health. Perhaps the most vital time of year to have your roof inspected is the fall, before the cold of winter sets in. 

 

Timing is key. Frigid temperatures can compromise the success of new roof installations and such repairs as shingle replacement because new shingles can’t seal down properly when it’s too cold outside. Moreover, attempting repairs on icy roofs can be treacherous, so roof problems uncovered too late in the season may have to wait until spring to be fixed. 

 

Another reason for a fall inspection is the issue that certain roof repairs should be initiated in the fall so they can be completed in the following spring. For example like a treatment for moss or lichen. The solutions used for either of these invaders can require an extended amount of time to work, sometimes up to 180 days. If moss or lichen are discovered during a fall roof inspection, there’s still a chance to get at them before cold weather sets in. Then, the treatment can be working during those long winter months and the dead lichen can be swept or rinsed off in the spring.

 

What's Inspected During A Roof Inspection?

A roof inspector will be looking for leaks, unusual wear and tear, damage caused by windblown debris, organic growth issues, and problems that may have occurred during shingle installation or subsequent repairs. Ultimately, a roof inspection gets broken into four facets: structure, materials, interiors and workmanship.

While doing these inspections there are a few things that we look for. We will do the following: 

  • Structural Inspection: The inspector will check for uneven roof planes and signs of sagging, in addition to examining the condition of the soffit, fascia, and gutter system. Masonry chimneys should be inspected at this time for cracks, crumbling grout, and damage to chimney caps. The inspector may also check the venting in your attic; improper venting can lead to heat and moisture buildup that reduces roof life and increases the risk of ice dams forming at the roof’s edge.
  • Interior Inspection: Because roof leaks ultimately damage your home, the inspector will check interior ceilings, the attic, and interior walls for water stains, mold, rot, and other signs that water is making its way into your house.
  • Material Inspection: Here, the inspector will be looking for loose, missing, or curling shingles; stains; moss; rust; and missing flashing or fasteners. Shingle aggregate that has settled in roof valleys or on the ground at the bottom of gutter downspouts is a sign that the roof could be near the end of its useful life. The inspector will also check the rubber boots and seals around vent pipes, looking for gaps or deterioration.
  • Workmanship Inspection: A thorough inspector will examine your roof for problems in workmanship that could increase the risks of leaks or other roof damage in the future. Incorrect flashing around roof penetrations—including vent pipes, skylights, and chimneys—would all be red flags.
