What We Look for During a Roof Inspection
At Watson’s Roofing & Construction, our roof inspections are comprehensive. Our certified roof inspectors identify potential issues affecting your roof’s performance and longevity. Here’s what we typically look for during a roof inspection:
1. Shingle Condition: We check for cracked, broken, or missing shingles, as well as signs of wear and tear. Damaged shingles can allow water to seep into your home, leading to leaks and structural damage.
2. Flashing: The flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights is critical for preventing water intrusion. We inspect these areas for any signs of damage or deterioration.
3. Gutters and Downspouts: We examine your gutters and downspouts to ensure they’re not clogged with debris and adequately direct water away from your home.
4. Ventilation: Proper roof ventilation is crucial for maintaining the temperature in your attic and preventing moisture buildup. We will check your roof’s ventilation system to ensure it functions correctly.
5. Structural Integrity: We assess the overall structure of your roof, checking for sagging or other signs of structural damage.
6. Interior Inspections: In some cases, we may also inspect the interior of your home, looking for signs of water damage, mold, or rot in your attic and ceilings.
7. Potential Leak Sites: We’ll identify leak sites, including roof penetrations and intersections.
Each area plays a vital role in your roof’s health and functionality. By conducting a thorough inspection, we can help you proactively address any issues, saving you from costly repairs. You can trust Watson’s Roofing & Construction to provide a comprehensive roof inspection for your peace of mind.
