What Happens During Your Free Roof Inspection?

What happens in a free roof inspection

Roof inspections are a crucial part of regular maintenance meant to protect your home from potential damage caused by curling, cracked, or missing shingles and any long-term structural damage. They’re important to help maintain your roof’s longevity and can help preserve the value of your home over time. Additionally, many insurance companies require a roof to be professionally inspected to qualify for roofing coverage.

M&M Roofing is here to help. We offer free roof inspections to help detect any issues before they cause more damage to your roof, resulting in costlier repairs.

What is a Roof Inspection?

A roof inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of the different components that make up your roof while taking into consideration the condition, age, and safety of the roof. M&M Roofing professionals will check for signs of damage, wear and tear, damage caused by weather, pests, or animals, and any other potential issues that could lead to costly repairs. We’ll work with you, the homeowner, to perform these inspections, and we’ll recommend any needed repairs or replacements to ensure safety and longevity.

During your free, detailed roof inspection, our professional inspectors will:

  • Look for missing shingles
  • Inspect for ponding water
  • Look at the flashing
  • Check the field for any cracks or tears
  • Check the edge detail
  • Inspect roof surfaces
  • Look for loose fasteners or nails

Why Do I Need a Free Roof Inspection?

Regularly scheduled inspections allow homeowners to spot small problems before they become expensive repairs down the road. When assessing a roof, M&M Roofing inspectors consider the materials used, the roof’s age, and construction type and perform hands-on tests to issue-spot. From there, they can provide an assessment of needed repairs or give an estimate for impending replacement costs.

If you haven’t ever scheduled a roof inspection before, now is as good a time as any! It’s important to schedule one with M&M Roofing to learn more about the life of your roof and the warning signs to watch out for. Oftentimes, simple roof maintenance is all you need to reduce costs and avoid whole roof replacements.

Why Should I Get a Roof Inspector Instead of a Home Inspector?

Home and roof inspectors do two very different jobs. Home inspectors focus on any structural issues that could affect the home or its value, while roof inspectors specialize in evaluating a roof’s condition.

Roof inspections can involve checking a roof for damage, such as cracked shingles or loose fasteners, that may affect the component’s ability to perform its function properly.

What Do Roof Inspections Include?

A roof inspection by M&M Roofing typically includes a comprehensive evaluation of the entire roofing system. This inspection can cover everything from the material, condition of the existing coats, flashing, air vents and soil stacks, chimney and skylight flashings, penetrations, and ventilation.

Overall, a roof inspection will provide you with an understanding of your roof’s current condition so you can make the best decisions regarding maintenance and repair needs.

Some of the things our inspectors check during an inspection include:

  • Interior signs of roof problems
  • Overall cleanliness
  • Skylights
  • Flashings
  • Old repairs
  • The remainder of your roof

If any of the above aren’t functioning properly or are having issues, that may mean you have a damaged and compromised roof, and you need to work with M&M Roofing quickly to get everything in order. Don’t put this off!
