Is it important to have your roof inspected?

The weather elements your home will face

The roof is exposed to the elements of each passing season. It should be able to withstand years of exposure to the wind, rain, snow and sun. The average lifespan of a roof will depend on a number of factors, i.e. what type of materials it’s made from and what type of weather those materials are exposed to the most?

The roof of your home is just one area of importance that is checked during a home inspection service.

A roof can fail prematurely at any time under normal everyday weather conditions. If your roof does fail it can usually be traced back to either faults in the design or it has been built using the wrong type of materials.

A roof inspection or a wind mitigation service is a professional evaluation of the condition of a roof and its stability during hurricane force winds. Once the roof is inspected, and if any concern is brought to your attention, the home inspection company will recommend what actions to take in order for the issues to be corrected.

If it turns out there is a leak, simply track the water stains running across the underside of your ceiling to a gathering spot (drip point). Now it may be easy to spot the leak, but finding its point of entry needs an expert’s eye and proper investigation; the type of knowledge and experience that you would find in a fully qualified and experienced home inspector.

A professional home inspector should be able to pinpoint the leaks entry point from the roof to your living space. Generally, they will look out for water stains, moisture patches, and water gathering points in the attic. The home inspector would then advise on the correct action to take in order to get back up to the standards that are required.

As mentioned, a home inspection is an evaluation of the many different aspects concerning your home.
