Roof Inspection: An Overview of the Process


The roof, as a whole (which includes all its accessories and supporting structures), represents the biggest protection of your home against the elements. Caring for it is thus common sense, as you’d want your most important shield to be up to par and working for as long as possible.

Roof Inspection

Short of actually performing gutter replacement or repair when it’s already done, it makes sense to do proper and regular roof inspections to head off bigger problems. In today’s post, Bone Dry Roofing details how a roof inspection goes and what to expect from it.

Schedule an Inspection

Many only schedule an inspection after a storm. This is a good idea, but inspections can be done even when the forecast for the next few weeks is bright and sunny. One advantage is that you can identify weaknesses and faults in your roofing much earlier, which allows you to ask for professional assistance before bad weather arrives.

Most contractors would say that a good time to schedule an inspection is during fall, whether your roof is old or new or healthy or damaged. Roof inspections should be done twice a year, ideally, but if time doesn’t permit, an annual check-up will suffice.

What Happens During a Roof Inspection?

Roofing experts generally go through a three-stage process: structural inspection, material inspection and finally the roof’s workmanship. The structural and material inspection will uncover hidden damage where they would recommend corrective action (for example, gutter or brick repair).

Workmanship merely checks if the way the roof was installed ticks all the boxes, and if not, they would suggest ways to ameliorate the situation. This is where warranties are usually discussed.

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
