What To Expect From Blacksmith Roofing’s Broken Arrow Roof Inspections
Blacksmith Roofing and Construction- Inspections: Where Family Building, Not Just Home Building, Is At The Core of Everything We Do.
Has your Broken Arrow home’s roof begun to show signs of age and neglect? If so, it is probably time to schedule a professional roofing inspection with Blacksmith Roofing to avoid expensive repairs or major damage to your property. Generally speaking, it is recommended for Broken Arrow homeowners to have their roofs inspected once per year, though other situations such as storms or getting your home ready for sale may require more frequent inspections.
Our Broken Arrow roof inspection specialists are guaranteed to provide you with the following during an inspection:
- Interior Inspection
The first thing our inspectors will do is inspect the inside of the home for evidence of water intrusion. In some cases, they will check your attic for signs of aging, leaks, mold, and moisture. Any openings in your roof will be identified by looking for streaks of light entering from the outside. Your inspector may also recommend you install insulation if your home does not have it to prevent heat loss.
- Exterior Inspection
The next thing that our inspectors will do is check the outside of your roof for signs of damage. This will include taking a close look and recording things like missing shingles, leaks, damaged flashing, and cracked caulk. Since improperly walking on your roof can be extremely dangerous and potentially cause damage to your roof’s tiles and seams, it is important you do not attempt to do this yourself.
- Repair Estimate
Upon completion of the inspection, the inspector servicing your home will prepare an estimate based on the level of damage to your roof, the cost of replacement materials, and labor. If the inspection was requested in relation to a pending real estate sale, both the buying and selling parties are to be presented with a report detailing the condition of the roof, any recommended repairs, and their estimated costs.
When To Schedule Roof Inspections
After a hailstorm or other significant weather event, most homeowners recognize the need for a thorough roof inspection to determine whether their roof suffered damage. But that should not be the only time you consider your roof’s health.
Perhaps the most vital time of year to have your roof inspected is the fall, before the cold of winter sets in. Timing is key. Frigid temperatures can compromise the success of new roof installations and such repairs as shingle replacement because new shingles can’t seal down properly when it’s too cold outside. Moreover, attempting repairs on icy roofs can be treacherous, so roof problems uncovered too late in the season may have to wait until spring to be fixed.
Homeowner Inspections vs Professional Inspections
Most homeowners can spot obvious roof problems, such as missing or flapping shingles, without climbing on the roof. Other types of damage, however, are not as visible to the untrained eye, which is why it is important to get a professional opinion. If your roof is relatively new (less than five years old), shows no signs of interior leaks, and has not been exposed to major weather events since the last time it was inspected, you can probably get by with a visual inspection from the ground and a quick check for leaks in your attic. In any other case, however, a comprehensive roof inspection should be completed by a roofing professional like Blacksmith Roofing who knows what to look for.
