Seasonal Roof Inspection
Hotter, drier summers paired with wetter, windier winters mean that roofs have to stand up to the elements. A seasonal roof inspection can help ensure that your property stays safe and dry during the next storm event. During the inspection, we’ll check for general roof health, in addition to detailed repairs or weak points that could cause leakage. Keep in mind that fixing problems early can prevent costly seasonal issues down the road.
Inspections for Buyers or Sellers
If you are buying or selling a property, a roof inspection may be a deciding factor in the sale. Christian Roofing will provide a trustworthy, honest assessment that both parties can feel confident in. During the inspection, we’ll check for signs of recent repairs, long term problems, rodent damage, and elements that need immediate replacing.
Roof Inspection for Annual Maintenance
Commercial properties and HOA’s sometimes require an annual or semi-annual roof inspection. This strategy helps keep maintenance costs low with timely, small-scale repairs. Don’t leave it too long – book an annual inspection to stay on top of any damage, infestations, or issues that can be solved with a simple repair. Contact us to schedule your inspection today.
Standard Inspection Procedures
Although the details of each inspection vary by the material, size, and age of the structure, your inspection will include a standard set of steps. The process will start from the ground up, including investigations from the outside, interior, and top of the property. Since damage is not always easily visible, we perform a series of detailed tests that can detect issues underneath the surface. In addition, we consider factors like the time of year and long-term maintenance schedules when planning and drafting the roof inspection report. The general inspection process includes the below components:
External Review of the Property: A comprehensive roof inspection starts with an external review of the walls, windows, gutters, and siding. We will note the location of any chimneys, vents, and gutters, along with any visible damage, signs of wear, or potential hazards.
Internal Analysis: Next, we’ll enter the property and internally inspect the ceilings, chimneys, skylights, and the attic, checking for signs of water leaks, rodents, wind, or heat damage.
Rooftop Inspection: The process includes an examination of the roof itself. One of our trained contractors will mount the roof, using appropriate precautions and safety equipment. Once on top of the roof, we will check the shingles, tiles, flashings, chimneys, fasteners, seams, and gutters. We will look for signs of tree or rodent damage, worn out materials, debris, chemical buildup, cracks, and holes.
Inspection Report: After the inspection is complete, you will be provided a detailed report along with any relevant photos, estimates, and recommendations. There is no commitment to book immediate repairs or service, and our friendly staff is on hand to answer any questions you might have.
