We have performed thousands of roof inspections since 2003. Considering that the roof protects the entire structure of a home or commercial building, it is very important to use a reputable and experienced company who is bonded and insured to perform the roof inspection. We offer several different types of roof inspections for homeowners and commercial building owners in our service area:
Storm Damage Roof Inspection:
Roof damage caused by storms may not be visible from the ground. In Alabama, storms are a common occurrence throughout the year and it is always a good idea to have your roof inspected after a severe storm moves through your area.
- When performing an inspection for storm damage we inspect the roof for wind and hail damage that may have been caused from a storm. We will inspect for creased, lifted or missing shingles that may have been damaged from wind. We will inspect for hail damage impacts that can cause bruising and pitting to the shingles. We also look for signs of hail damage that may not be very noticeable until the shingles begin to leak in the future, such as granules that are missing in the impact area or the fiberglass shingle mat that is torn and can allow water to penetrate through the effected areas. We will also inspect the exterior for hail damage including; siding, windows and window screens, gutters, a/c unit or anything else that may have been damaged from hail. We will document any damage we find with pictures and or video and show them to our customers as well as discuss the best course of action to repair any damages found.
Roof Condition Inspection and Report:
We work with many real estate customers who are purchasing or selling a home or commercial building. It is always a good idea to have the roof inspected before purchasing or selling a property as the roof is vital to protecting the structure of the home or building and repairs may be needed to pass an inspection or to obtain financing and insurance. Most inspection companies will not climb on the roof to perform a full roof inspection due to the danger involved and lack of roofing experience. We do not charge a fee for the roof inspection for homeowners or building owners unless a report is needed. If the inspection is for the purchase of the home or building we charge a fee for the roof inspection and report. We will document our findings with pictures and or video and provide a written roof condition report. We will gladly recommend any repairs needed and provide an estimate to perform the repairs.
- We will inspect the entire roof to determine the condition of the roof shingles or metal roofing, pipes, vents, flashing and ventilation. We will inspect the shingle installation and check for granule loss, exposed fiberglass, layers of shingles installed and the overall condition of the roofing. We will also inspect the roof for exposed nails, proper ventilation, proper flashing, rusted vents and caulking. For metal roofs we will inspect the metal installation and check for dents, rust, paint fade as well as inspect the overall condition.
Leak and/or Repair Inspection:
To try to determine the cause of the leak and pinpoint the area of leak or repairs needed we will start by performing an inspection in the attic area if it is accessible. We will inspect for water stains, wet insulation, sheetrock damage, mold and mildew and any other signs of water infiltration.
- When performing a leak and repair inspection we will inspect the entire roof and all penetrations on the roof so we can try to locate the cause of leak and repairs needed. We will also inspect the condition of the roof shingles or metal roofing, pipes, vents, flashing and ventilation. We will inspect the shingle or metal installation, granule loss, exposed fiberglass, layers of shingles installed, missing shingles, creased or damaged shingles, hail damage, exposed nails, proper ventilation, proper flashing, vents and caulking.
