Keeping your roof up to par with safety regulations is important to ensure the protection of the people you love. The roof of your home is a crucial part of structural durability and must be properly maintained, repaired, and replaced when necessary to keep it strong and able to withstand the elements. If you are unsure of whether or not your roof is safe and capable of lasting another many years, it may be time for a roof inspection.

An inspection will be completed by a certified roofer who knows what to look for to determine a roof’s safety, condition, and strength. Working together with a reliable and professional company can make all the difference in how thorough the inspection is and your overall understanding of what adjustments need to be made. As you prepare for an inspection, here are some of the things you can expect.

What is observed during an Inspection?                                   

Inspectors focus primarily on the structural integrity and overall condition of your roof. This encompasses several other elements including:

  • Rodent or bird problems
  • Mechanical Inspection
  • Signs of Damage
  • Assessment of Remaining Life
  • Detailed Inspection of Fascia, Eves, and Rafters
  • Inspection of Gutters and Draining Systems

What Happens Afterward?

Upon completion of a thorough roof inspection, the inspector will prepare a report that goes into detail what findings were made and recommended repairs. This can be discussed extensively with a professional to determine your understanding of any existing problems or concerns. The inspector will also provide an estimation regarding work that may need to be done in order to return your roof to prime condition to ensure safety, comfort, and efficiency.


When the time comes for a roof inspection, be sure to take the time and write down any concerns you may have. An inspector will look closely at many elements to determine your roof’s condition and can address your concerns along the way. Once the inspection is complete, you can look through the findings to determine which repairs you want to have done.
