A roof inspection is essential, particularly if your roof is more than 20 years old. The roof of the home is directly exposed to the elements and in the Tri-State area, this means rain, sleet and snow. This will take its toll and while you may not notice the problem at first, you will eventually see the consequences over time.
What is a Roof Inspection?
A roof inspection is the process where an inspector will evaluate your roof. The inspection itself will review the shingles, frame and other structures to ensure the roof is in good condition. Inspectors will look for signs of moisture, water damage and leakage. Inspecting a roof correctly requires a keen eye and attention to detail as sometimes trouble spots can be difficult to detect. Once the inspector has thoroughly reviewed the roof, he or she will give you a full assessment and recommendations for repair or replacement.
When Do You Need Roof Inspection in New Jersey?
Some of the instances where NJ homeowners require roof inspection services include:
- You notice shingle granules inside the gutter: A large number of granules which is present in the gutter is a typical sign that the roof is in need of repair at the very least and possibly an entire replacement. Once the gutters have deteriorated from the shingles, they will begin curling, cracking or blistering. Oftentimes roofs in this condition will display small leaks.
- The roof is sagging: A sagging roof is never a good sign. It means that there are major structural problems present in the roof, possibly the foundation or attic. This issue is time sensitive and you should contact a construction team as quickly as possible as repairing the damage will become harder and more costly as the problem spreads.
- You notice missing shingles: When shingles are missing this means that the underlayment of the roof is directly exposed to damage resulting from water. The water will then be able to flow into your attic with ease and must be inspected to find the source. The missing shingles will need to be replaced and a professional evaluation will determine if a complete roof replacement is necessary.
