What Should I Look For When Inspecting My Roof?

It is a good idea to do a roof inspection at least twice a year, generally in the spring and fall – prevention and finding any potential problems early is the key to keep your roof and your home in good shape. With rainier summer months, it’s possible you may realize unfortunately there are problems without an inspection. If you notice problems, contact your area Cumming roofing company, Cornerstone Roofing.

Certainly don’t do anything that would be unsafe to you or to the structure. The following questions are just ideas for what you can look for as warning signs that something might need to be fixed with your roof. Our company would be glad to provide you with a thorough roof inspection.

Interior Inspection: Begin inside your house by checking out the attic if you can gain access to it. Look for any areas where the roof may be sagging, wet or damp, where they may be dark spots or signs of mold from poor or faulty ventilation, or where you may even see light shining through in spots.

Exterior Inspection: Once you have given the inside a once over, go outside and take a good look at the exterior of the roof. You can do a visual inspection from the ground or from the side of a ladder; walking on your roof can cause shingle damage or break tiles if you have that type of roofing material.

Can you see any buckling, sagging of the roof line, curling of shingles, missing shingles, moss or mold growing along the edges of the roof?

Are there rotted areas, dark stains on the roof, or color changes across an area of the roof?

Are there areas where the flashing is pulled away from the roof along roof angle changes or around pipes and vents?

Is there anything that just doesn’t look quite right when compared to the rest of the roof?

Are the gutters free and clear of debris? Are the gutters and downspouts properly attached?

Are all vents that exit your home free and clear to allow good ventilation?
