Gauge Your Roof’s Health with a Professional Roof Inspection

Roof Inspection

Whether you’re a home or business owner, it’s essential that you have a regular, professional roof inspection performed. As the primary means of defense against heat, cold, and moisture, your building’s roof is a “shield” that protects your building – and its contents – from damage. When you have a roof inspection performed, you’re ensuring that that shield is in good, working order. A professional inspector will be able to identify common problems and recommend solutions that will ensure that your building stays safe and – even better – that the lifespan of your roof is maximized. In today’s post, we’re going to discuss the roof inspection process.


The first steps involve a detailed walkthrough of your property to examine the integrity of your building’s ceilings, attics, and other upper levels. After this, a walk around the perimeter of your home is performed to ensure that none of your roof’s hardware or components have become loose.


Next comes the actual roof inspection, which is a much deeper process than the initial examination. The chimney is searched, vents and flashing are inspected, and your building is examined for signs of common problems, including damage from the sun, structural depressions, and algae infestation.

Final touches

After the full roof inspection has been completed, the final step is to look at the building’s gutters. Checking to see if they are properly installed, clear of blockages, and well-maintained, your roof inspector will ensure that your gutters are contributing to the overall health of your roof.
