A comprehensive roofing inspection is pivotal to maintaining the integrity and longevity of your roof. At Weldon Roofing, our experts will meticulously assess key aspects to ensure your roof stays in good condition.

What a Roofer Checks During a Roofing Inspection

Here’s what we look for during a roofing inspection:

  • Overall Roof Condition. We will start with a general overview to identify visible signs of wear, damage, or aging. We usually get requests from homeowners to do an inspection because they want to know how much longer their roof will last.
  • Shingles or Roofing Material. We examine the shingles or other roofing materials for signs of deterioration, such as cracking, curling, or missing pieces.
  • Roof Flashing. Flashing around vents, chimneys, and roof edges are checked for damage or leaks that could lead to water damage.
  • Gutters and Downspouts. We make sure these are clear of debris and functioning properly so water will flow away from the home.
  • Signs of Water Damage. We look for evidence of water penetration that could affect the roof’s structure and your home’s interior. People often call us when they have a leaky roof. A roofing inspection can find tiny problems before they become major leaks.
  • Moss, Algae, and Fungus Growth. Such growths can indicate moisture issues and potentially damage roofing materials over time.
  • Structural Issues. If we find sagging or uneven roof lines, these suggest underlying structural problems that need immediate attention.
  • Ventilation Systems. Proper ventilation prevents heat and moisture buildup that can lead to roof damage.

Our thorough inspection process ensures every component of your roof is evaluated. If issues are found, we’ll discuss the best course of action to protect your home or business. Trust us to keep your roof in peak condition and schedule your roofing inspection today.
