What to look for during a Roof Inspection
There are specific things to look for when assessing roof damage during a roof inspection. Metal piece in the roof covering interruption, in dormer, chimney and vent pipes should be checked and repaired if they are torn apart. During your roof inspection, if there are bare spots on asphalt shingles where the granules have come off, they should be replaced. Wood roofing should be inspected for rotting and warps during your roof inspection. Replace the roof if more than 1/3 is affected by rot. Metal roofing has a long life but rust and corrosion areas are signs of aging and possible need for replacement which should be considered during your roof inspection. Lifetime warranties come with slate, clay tiles and asbestos cement shingles but they can be damaged by icy conditions so check for broken, chipped or missing pieces.
