What Is a Certified Roof Inspection?

A roof inspection is often included in a home inspection for purchasing or refinancing a home, but a certified roof inspection takes this process a few steps further. A regular roof inspection generally only takes a quick look to identify any obvious problems, such as evidence of leaks or the general condition of the roof. A certified roof inspection looks at the roof pipes, tie-ins, valleys, vents, and the mounting of HVAC units. A certified roof inspection gives a good overview of how much life the roof has left before it needs to be replaced.

What Influences a Roofing Certification?

  1. The type of roof on the property.
  2. The condition of the roof.
  3. The age of the roof.
  4. The slope or pitch of the roof.

How does a roof certification work?

A roof certification informs a potential buyer about the state of the roof and also gives an estimate on how much longer the roof will last before needing replacement.

Whether your specific roofing needs are residential, commercial or industrial in nature, Massy Roofing covers inspection, certification and even replacement of your roof. We offer a complete service that handles all basic repairs and exterior sealing-we not only know the signs of a problem but also how to go about fixing it as efficiently as possible.

What Does a Roof Inspection Look Like?

A roofing inspection consists of an exterior and interior inspection. During the first part of the exterior inspection, we will walk around the roof and take note of any areas that need special attention. Then, we will climb up on the roof and examine any problem areas more closely. The interior inspection involves getting inside your attic or crawlspace to check for any signs of damage or leaks.

How Often Should You Have Your Roof Inspected?

Having a regular inspection of our roof can help you save on repair bills. The sooner problems are caught, the less expensive they will be to fix. Keeping your roof maintained will help to extend the life of your roof. On most homes, it is suggested that you have your roof inspected at least twice a year. It is also a good idea to have it inspected after a major storm, too. The damage that you do not see can cost you much more in the end.

What Does a Roof Inspector Do?

During a roof inspection, we get up on your roof and inspect every component of the roofing system. Any opening where pipes, skylights, HVAC stacks, gutters, and vents go through the roof must be inspected for integrity. We inspect the flashings and every inch of the main roofing material.

A roofing inspection checklist:

  • Materials used
  • Flashings
  • Vents or ventilation systems
  • Chimney flashings
  • Skylight flashings
  • Plumbing vents
  • HVAC stacks
  • Dryer/kitchen vents
  • Gutters

Do Home Inspectors Have To Get Up On The Roof?

Roof inspectors will clamber up onto the roof in question and compile their report on everything about the roof, including its condition and materials.

If a roof is in no need of repair, the inspector will simply issue a certificate for the roof and state how watertight the roof happens to be. If the roof is in need of repair, the certification will have to wait until those repairs are performed.

Can You Inspect A Roof In The Rain?

You might be surprised, but the best time to do a roofing inspection is when it is raining. Inspecting a roof in the rain allows us to see any roof leaks, flooding, bad flashing, and other items that are easier to spot in the rain. You do not have to worry about scheduling your inspection on a sunny day because we work rain or shine.

Why Do I Need a Roof Inspection?

Major roofing issues often begin as small problems that you do not notice until they become a major leak. A trained inspector can help spot these impending problems so that you can get them fixed before they become a major issue. That is the most important reason to have a roofing inspection. They might also be required when you are selling your home, refinancing, or for insurance purposes.
