A roof inspection involves an intensive examination of the flashing, the ventilation, the materials and the drainage system. The inspector will also enter the attic and thoroughly examine the roof’s interior.
The inspector will watch out for the following symptoms:
Missing, cracked, buckling or warped shingles
Excessive shingle granulation in drainage system
Insufficient ventilation, leading to a moisture buildup in the eaves
Even one small breakdown in the many interconnected parts of a roof can leave a homeowner with high surprise repair costs.
