When Should I Get a Roof Inspection?

Buying or Selling a House – You’ll Want a Roof Inspection

Home inspectors are not usually roof inspection experts. While they will note any obvious surface issues they can see on your roof, many home inspectors usually recommend a separate roof inspection whenever they notice a problem.

Renewing Home Insurance Policy or Changing Insurance Company – You’ll Need a Roof Inspection

Before renewing your insurance policy or changing your homeowners insurance company, it’s wise to get roof inspection report. If your roof sustained storm damage while under the protection of one insurer, it’s best to have it repaired or replaced while you’re still that insurer’s client.

Missing, Loose or Curled Shingles – You Should Get a Roof Inspection

Loose roof tiles can wreak havoc on your home and be a signal that major damage and larger problems are on the horizon, such as water damage, mold, rotting, and the depreciation of home value.

Leaks can rot the wood in your home, damage your appliances, furniture, ceilings, walls, and insulation fast! And mold can start growing in just one day, resulting in expensive cleanup costs and exposing you and your family to health problems you want to avoid.

The Inspection

Blue Fox’s experienced roofers thoroughly inspect your roof from both the exterior and the interior. We start from the inside and check for any sign of leaks and water damage. Then we inspect the eaves and roof overhangs for any sign of trouble.

Your expert inspector then climbs up on the roof to check for the following:

  • Broken Shingles
  • Clogged roof valleys
  • Clogged gutters
  • Debris and vegetation on the roof
  • Cracked or failing seals like pipes, plumbing vents, and attic vents
