The first step to addressing issues with your roof is to schedule an inspection with a reputable Roofing Contractor. Most companies, including us, provide these inspections free of charge. The results can be incredibly informative as you make decisions on your next steps in your roofing adventure. A proper inspection will save you time and costly expenses in the long run.
Has your roof been hit by hail, debris, or showing signs of age and neglect? You’re likely due for a professional roofing inspection. It is recommended that you have your roof looked at once a year. If you live in an area that experiences frequent seasonal storms or heavy winds, you may consider having your roof looked at more frequently.
When you get an inspection here is what you can expect to experience with them:
Exterior Inspection: The first thing a roofer will do is check the outside of your roof for wear and damage. This will include taking a closer look and recording things missing shingles, divots from hail, damaged flashing, weak spots, and aging or cracked sealants. They will likely look at your gutter system and make sure that it is working correctly too. Remember that walking on your roof can damage it, so make sure you have a professional correctly do this for you.
Interior Inspection: Our roofer will likely want to see inside your attic space to look for any wear and aging. Generally, we look for leaks, mold, signs of moisture, cracks of light entering the space. In practicing enhanced safety during this time, our inspectors may have you submit photographs from your interior to keep your family protected. You are more than welcome to voice what you’re comfortable with!
Estimate: Lastly, upon completion of your inspection, you’ll receive feedback on what was discovered and the steps you’ll need to take to address any found issues. This is followed by an estimate for the cost of fixing any problems. Remember to talk with your inspector about what might be covered under your insurance policy or communicate directly with your homeowners’ insurance company to understand your coverages. You might find that repairs could be included, especially if a storm has just hit you.
Once the inspection & estimate is complete, the decision is in your hands. Feel free to get other quotes, but make sure that they have all the necessary credentials and insurance to do the work. Also, make sure their service includes industry-leading Warranties like our Restoration Builders Companies.
You’re thinking about getting an inspection, now aren’t you? Good! Most get to this point and then choose not to follow through because they’re either scared of finding out about expensive damage or don’t want to deal with a pushy sales rep. That’s never our approach! We want to provide you with the best information possible so you can make an informed decision. However, know that we stand behind our work and provide you with the industry’s best service and warranties.
