What To Expect In A Roof Inspection


The roof of your home is its most significant defense against the harsh elements of nature. A strong roof will keep your home safe during storms, snow, and falling debris. To continue to guard your family and possessions from extreme weather and rain, it is vital to ensure that your roof remains in proper condition year-round. 


Many homeowners only think about their roof’s health after the damage has occurred or when they see evidence of leaks and weakness. However, it is essential to your home’s security and safety to have your roof inspected at least twice a year so that you can be prepared for your home to face even the toughest of storms. Scheduling a professional inspection of your roof is not as complicated as you may think. Here is what to expect during the process. 


Initial External Inspection

Your Atlas Construction & Roofing specialist will begin the roof inspection by taking an initial look at the outside of your home and the exterior of its roof. We look for visible signs of wear and tear such as missing or damaged shingles, leaks, cracks in caulk and gutter systems. Once any damage is recorded, the inspector will check the roof for any sagging or uneven surfaces. 


Internal Inspection

The roof inspector will then begin to check the interior of your home for any signs of water damage and leaking. Attic space will also be reviewed to determine if any mold, moisture, and aging are present, which can also indicate that the roof may be compromised somehow. Ventilation will be assessed, and insulation will be observed for signs of water damage. 


Storm Damage

You may also want to have one of our roofing inspectors check your roof after any severe weather has occurred. High winds can send limbs crashing onto roofs, weakening their structure, strong winds can push rain and water into spaces creating rot, and heavy snow can increase shingle deterioration rates causing them to crack and loosen. Even if you do not see damage at first, it is a good idea to have a professional determine that your roof is sound to prevent any future expenses of unforeseen repair.
