Workmanship Quality Inspection
Poor workmanship can affect your roof’s performance and make it more vulnerable to leaks. A good roofing company will thoroughly examine your roof and look for problems like incorrect flashing installation and improper shingle nailing.
As an experienced residential and commercial roofing company, we will thoroughly inspect the interior of your home. We’ll look for signs of water damage in the attic, ceilings and walls. If we detect water stains, mold or rot and water stains, then it’s possible that your roof has a leak. We’ll identify the source of the leak and provide the necessary repairs.
A good roof inspector will check for signs of sagging and uneven roof planes. They will also examine the condition of the gutter system, fascia and soffit. The chimney will also be checked for masonry damage like cracks and crumbling gout. As part of the structural inspection, the roofer may also inspect the venting in your attic.
During this step, the inspector will look for curling, loose or missing asphalt shingles. They will also look for missing fasteners and flashing and signs of moss, stains and rust. In addition, they’ll examine the roof valleys and gutters for signs of excessive shingle granules, and they’ll check for gaps and signs of deterioration on the rubber boots and seals around the vent pipes.
