WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A ROOF INSPECTION
You can do a simple inspection on your own to tell if you need to take the next steps.
Start with the exterior then move to the interior. You are looking for signs of wear, balding shingles, loose or missing shingles, cracked eaves and gaps in your gutters as well as any small entry points in your roof by animals.
If you see anything on the outside, you will need to call a professional roofing contractor. It’s possible that some of the damage has been growing underneath winter snow melt as well as possible age of roof that is beginning to show.
Interior inspection is looking for cracks on walls and water stains on the ceiling and walls. Any hair line crack can easily grow into weakened ceiling beams and create room for moisture to grow.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A ROOFING CONTRACTOR
Now that you are ready to have a professional roofing contractor come to your home for an inspection it’s important to know what to look for.
Start with referrals! Ask friends, neighbors and coworkers if they have worked with a contractor, their experience, and if they recommend.
Start with a local community business that knows the weather and area
Complete the process by contacting the contractor and securing an inspection. Ask questions like “will the owner be on property during inspection”, or ” is your business licensed, bonded and insured” and if you plan to use insurance claim or policy be sure and ask about the process!
