A roof inspection is a thorough assessment of your roof’s condition performed by professionals. A typical inspection entails the inspectors physically on your roof checking out its materials and structures and taking photos to document issues. Sometimes, an inspection includes drone or satellite images and even infrared technology used to further examine the structures underneath your roofing materials to better assess their condition.


Why should I get a roof inspection?

There are many reasons why you may choose to schedule an inspection — weather damage, water leaks, or an aging roof, to name a few. However, the best thing you can do is to schedule annual or biannual inspections so that you can stay informed about your roof’s condition and know when issues start to arise.


What should I expect during a roof inspection?

So, you’ve decided it’s time to call in the professionals to inspect your roof. What happens next? Whether you have concerns about your roof’s condition or have decided to schedule annual roofing inspections, we can offer insight into what you can expect.


During an inspection, the professionals will get on your roof and assess your shingles, flashing, gutters, chimneys, vents, and skylights. Issues inspectors look for include:

  • Cracked, crumbling, or peeling shingles
  • Corroded flashing
  • Cracked, clogged, or unattached gutters
  • Improperly sealed skylights, vents, or flashing
  • Mold and algae growth
  • Cracked or damaged chimney caulking, brick, or mortar


The inspector will also examine the structure of your roof and its ventilation system, insulation, deck, and rafters to ensure that condensation is not building up anywhere within the structure of your roof. Issues with roof structure that inspectors look for include:

  • Sagging
  • Condensation buildup
  • Improper ventilation function
  • Water damage


Additionally, the inspector will evaluate the craftsmanship quality of your roof, which significantly impacts its performance and longevity. Incorrect installation methods or the use of subpar materials can decrease the durability of your roof over time because these issues allow water to penetrate it.


After the inspection is complete, you can expect to receive a comprehensive evaluation detailing the condition of your roof. This report will outline any identified issues or areas of concern and may be accompanied by relevant photographs. Additionally, the inspector will provide insights into potential repairs or the need for a roof replacement, along with cost estimates.
