What to Expect from a Roof Inspection

What to Expect from a Roof Inspection

There may be many times in which you need a roof inspection completed on your home: when you buy or sell a new home, after a harsh summer or winter, or just for peace of mind periodically throughout homeownership. Having a trusted roofing company who knows what they are looking for is imperative. Bealing Roofing & Exteriors, Inc. is a full-service roofing company located in Hanover PA and offers roofing inspections by our highly educated team. Here is what you can expect from a roof inspection.

What we look for.

When a roofing company comes out to climb on your roof and take a look, they look for several things. Inspecting the roof for signs of apparent damage is the first thing and then signs of damage not seen to the naked eye.  There are several techniques to doing this and each company may be different so be sure to do your research before selecting the company that suits your needs.

A roof inspection will also review issues such as peeling shingles, signs of water damage, how your gutters are holding up, any gaps around important areas such as chimneys and skylights, and missing or raised nails.  All of these items may not be obvious, so it is essential to have a professional roofing company perform the inspection.

Why you should get it done.

If you are buying or selling a home, the lender may require you to have a roof inspection.  Even if they do not, and you have lived in your home for some time, a periodic roof inspection is a good idea.  It is the primary source of protecting your home from the elements so you want to make sure it is in tip-top shape.
