What To Expect From Our Professional Roof Inspections

Our Annapolis roof inspector provides comprehensive roof inspections. We understand that you need to know all the details about the current condition of the roof we are inspecting and what type of repairs are needed. We closely inspect the entire roof structure from top to bottom. Our roof inspections cover every part of your roof including these important areas where leaks usually form:

  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Chimney structures
  • Plumbing vents
  • All seals around roof projections
  • Storm collars and vents
  • Seals around skylights
  • All roof flashing
  • Attic insulation
  • Roof ventilation
  • Eaves, soffits, gables

  • Attic rafters
  • Roof rakes and ridges
  • Roof valleys
  • Roof decking/sheathing
  • Field of the roof system
  • Roof fasteners
  • Shingles
  • Underlayment
  • Weather barriers

Our roof inspector will look for signs of all types of structural damage. This will include the stability of the entire roof structure. A weak spot in the roof is a sure sign that you've had leaking for some time. Bulging or sagging is a sign of structural damage. Weak spots, dry rotting, and other structural support problems are accurately identified:

  • Dry rot problems
  • Moisture penetration problems
  • Strength of entire roofing system

  • Estimated cost of necessary repairs
  • Potential future roof problems

Roof Inspections After Storm Damage

The first step to getting effective storm damage roof repairs or developing a good roof replacement plan is to hire a professional roof inspector. You need to know the specifics about what type of damage has been done to your roof and what needs to be done to restore it to good condition. The report you receive will help you to file your insurance claim and then fight for any repair costs they don't want to cover.

One thing you should not do is only rely on your insurance company's damage inspector to tell you what your roof needs. Hire your own roofing contractor who is certified to do roof inspections if you want to get the most from the storm damage claim you file.

By getting your own roof inspection done, you can be sure of the exact cost of the repairs. You'll also have the most accurate information about what type of repairs need to be made for your roof restoration. It's not uncommon for homeowners to get stuck paying out of pocket themselves.

Even if you don't choose Riverside Home Services for your storm damage roof inspection, protect yourself by calling a local roofing company immediately after your roof has suffered from storm damage.

Do you plan to buy a new home in the Annapolis area? You can choose to go with the information a home inspector provides about the roof or hire a professional roof inspector who has been installing and repairing roofs for decades.

A certified roof inspector has achieved master roofer status. They also go through specific training and certification in order to provide professional roof inspections. They will provide you with a more thorough, detailed, and accurate roof inspection report.

Let our Annapolis roof inspection contractor give you an accurate report with details about the condition of the roof on the home you plan to buy. That way, you won't get stuck with roof repairs or a replacement shortly after you move into the home. The report will also help you to make an accurate purchase offer and will provide you with the information you need to negotiate a lower price.

If you plan to sell your Annapolis home, a professional roof inspection will help you list your home at a reasonable price. Buyers will be more interested in your home if you provide them with an inspection report which proves your roof is in good condition.
