The average 2,500 sq. ft. home has 15 different roof penetrations that may include plumbing vents, a dryer vent, and various attic vents, bathroom and laundry room vents, water heater vents, furnace vents and sometimes chimneys and skylights. Part of our inspection process includes checking each one of these for any problems. We also check ventilation, valley flashings along with the hip and ridge cap shingles. When you’re not having your roof regularly inspected and maintained, leaks can occur and cause un-needed stress and anxiety. Let our experience keep your ceilings and floors dry.
Throughout the whole inspection process, photographs are taken by the inspector to document any evidence of areas that are leaking right now, or that are likely to leak in the future. After any and all photos have been taken and the roof has been fully inspected, the inspector puts together a thoroughly written inspection report within 24 hours, that includes photographs, areas that are causing problems, ways to correct these problems, and price estimates that can help you when you try to sell, to finance, or to insure your home.
Our roofing technicians have been in the roofing industry for over three decades – staying on the cutting edge of roofing technology as it advances. This broad knowledge permits us to review every roofing project from a position of experience. There are few problems we have not seen and/or solved at least once before.
Austin Roof Inspection Service
Roof inspections are simply inspections that determine the integrity of a roof, how long it may last, and when it will need to be replaced. Roof inspectors are not going to climb up on your roof or the roof of a home you are thinking of buying and pull up shingles or tiles. Roof inspectors have special procedures wherein they can determine the lifespan of a given roof without tearing into it. At first glance it might seem that roofing inspectors would have to pull up part of the roof to do a thorough examination, but if you consider your own roof, you would not want anyone tearing holes in it just to see if it was in good shape.
