Your home’s yearly roof checkup is important. Your roof is your first defense against bad weather, hot days and heavy storms. Whether you’re facing structural issues or simply want an inspection, understanding the professional process can help. Below, we’re covering the ins and outs of the roof inspection process.
Your professional provider will “break up” your roof inspection into four sections:
Let's cover each section
First, your roofing inspector will check for uneven roof spots. They’ll also check for sagging. In addition, they’ll check your roof’s fascia, soffit and gutter system. If you’ve asked for a chimney inspection, too, they’ll inspect your chimney for crumbling grout, cracks and chimney cap damage.
Next, your inspector will check your roof for missing, loose or curling shingles. Once they’ve inspected the shingles, they’ll look for rust, moss or mildew. They’ll also check your roof for missing fasteners or flashing. Vent pipe seals and rubber boots will be examined for deterioration or gaps.
It’s important to examine a roof’s underbelly, too. Once your inspector has double-checked the exterior’s structural and material integrity, they’ll check the interior for the following:
Finally, the thorough inspection will cover your roof’s workmanship. Before your roofing inspector finishes, they’ll examine your roof for incorrect flashing. They’ll also examine the roof’s different penetrations, like its skylights and vent pipes, for structural integrity.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my "sad" roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
