What We Cover During an Inspection

Roofs play a significant role in providing protection and insulation, making them a vital part of the structure of any home. Keeping your roof in good condition is crucial to its function. However, it can be challenging to spot issues that impact your roof’s performance and longevity.

Regular roof inspections offer an excellent way of identifying damage early on and extending your roof’s life. At AmeriPro Roofing, we have certified and experienced roofers who conduct thorough complimentary roof inspections to help you make informed decisions about your roof and keep your family and home safe.

3 Reasons to Get a Roof Inspection

Roof inspections are necessary for examining the state of your roof and alerting you to any repairs or replacements needed. Here are a few situations that call for a roof inspection:

1. Aging

Since roofs are constantly exposed to the elements, they wear and tear over time. A roof should last 30 to 50 years, and regular inspections can help the structure retain its visual appeal and performance while meeting or exceeding its expected life span.

2. Harsh Weather Conditions

Roof inspections can be highly beneficial after a storm or hail. While some storm damage, like leaks or broken shingles, is easily identifiable, an assessment will help you find hidden issues and get to the source of the problem.

3. Drainage

Accumulating debris, trash and leaves can clog your drainage system and cause water to pool on your roof. The buildup can go unnoticed, leading to leaks and moisture damage. A roof inspection can help identify the objects needing removal and ensure proper drainage.

How Long Does a Roof Inspection Take

A roof inspection usually takes anywhere between 30 minutes to several hours. The exact duration will vary depending on your roof’s size, type and condition. Another factor that may influence the length of time is accessibility. If your roof is not easily accessible, the assessment can take longer to complete.
