Roof Inspections: What Are You Inspecting on My Roof?

Getting a yearly roof inspection can discover issues before they become full-blown problems!
Sun City, Arizona

Every year, you need to hire a Sun City roofing contractor to inspect your roof. All year, your roofing materials can gradually break down as a result of expansion and contraction from extreme temperature changes, and heavy rains and winds can blow off shingles and tiles. Pests can damage your roof, as can fallen limbs. Yet you may not know that your roof is in jeopardy if you don’t have a noticeable leak.

Getting a yearly roof inspection can discover issues before they become full-blown problems and before you have water pouring through your ceiling. You can get a minor roof repair that saves you thousands of dollars over major repairs and replacement of entire sections of your roof.

Here is what is included in a roof inspection:

Roof Material

Your roofing contractor will inspect roofing material such as tiles and shingles for any signs of deterioration or damage, such as loose shingles or tiles, buckling shingles, or broken tiles. The contractor will look for signs of granular loss, deformed edges, punctures, cracks and more in both the tile or shingle and the underlayment (if showing). Basically, the roofer will be looking for any signs of damage or the potential for damage.

Roof Features

The roof of your home includes much more than the tiles or shingles. The entire roofing system also includes the flashing around chimneys or other components that intersect the roof, gutters, fascia, soffit, drains, vents, sky lights and more. Your roof inspection should include evaluation of all of these components. The roofing contractor should look for signs of loose materials, rotting, and other issues. The roofer will also look for signs of rust, corrosion, cracked caulking, and missing parts.

Structure

Roof Inspection in Sun City

If your roof is experiencing problems, the signs can show up on other parts of your home, such as the ceiling and the walls. Your roofing contractor should also look at your ceiling and interior and exterior walls for cracks, water stains, deformation, deterioration and other signs of problems.

You cannot always rely on your home inspection to double as your roof inspection. Many inspectors look at the roof from the ground using binoculars, and that means they miss some of the common signs of problems, such as cracks and granular loss.

Annual roof inspections can help to extend the life of your roof and, in the long run, can actually save you money. When issues are found in their earliest stages, you may only spend a few hundred dollars to repair your Phoenix roof. If you let those issues go, your roof repair bills could be in the thousands.
