When Should You Get a Roof Inspection?
Most experts recommend having a commercial roof inspected once per year. However, if you’ve experienced particularly bad weather in your area, you may want to increase the frequency of inspections. Although this may seem like an unnecessary cost, it’s worth it to be able to avoid potentially costly damage in the future. The age of your roof can also determine how often an inspection should be done. If yours is relatively new, you may not need as many inspections as one that is many years older.

When the material roofing inspection is done, the roofer will be taking a closer look at the materials that the roof is made out of. They’ll check for missing shingles, damaged shingles, rust, fasteners that are broken, or stains. They’ll also look at the downspouts of the gutter to see if they are still carrying water to effectively prevent water damage. Any additional damage will be noted, especially deterioration and gaps next to seals.
The interior part of the overall inspection is extremely important because damage to your roof doesn’t only impact your roof. It can also cause damage to the interior of your home, including the ceiling. When your roofer does the interior inspection, they will check the ceilings for brown spots or sagging caused by leaking water. They’ll also look at the walls to check for signs of water damage, rot, or even mold that grows when moisture is present. If they see problems with your interior, they’ll know there are issues with your roof that need to be checked out.
