So, you’ve scheduled a roof inspection with a reputable roofer like Native Roofing and now you’re wondering what you can expect from the report. In this blog post, we’ll review some of the most common items you’ll find on your roof inspection report.
Typically broken down into sections with a list of checkboxes, the roof inspection report will essentially provide you with a nice overview of the condition of your roof and any potential areas of concern. It’s important to review this report carefully so that you can promptly plan for any necessary repairs or replacements.
Contents of Your Roof Inspection Report Should Include:
- The Basics: These include the date of the inspection, your address and contact information, the roofing company’s contact information, and so forth.
- Roofing Material, Age, & Condition of the Roof: Overall, these three items will be used to determine whether or not you should consider replacing your roof in the near future, with the age and condition of the roof being the primary determining factors.
- Problem Areas: Any areas of your roof that are showing signs of wear or damage will be noted in the report. You will be advised to address these areas as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
- Maintenance Recommendations: Your roofer may recommend certain maintenance work to be performed to extend the life of your roof. This may be all your roof requires, with a reroofing project put off to a later date. Be sure to follow their recommendations to keep your roof in top condition.
- Estimated Cost of Repairs: If any repairs are needed, your roofer will provide an itemized list with the estimated costs. This information can be used to budget for the upcoming repairs.
- Previous Maintenance and Repair Work: Your roofing contractor might ask you for a brief history of any recent maintenance or repair work so that they can get a better feel for your roof’s integrity.
- Summary and Comment Section: Lastly, the roofing contractor will jot down any comments that will prove helpful to both you the home or business owner, and them as well. This section will be where they write down any additional notes; a dedicated spot to mention any imperative information that a checkbox doesn’t cover or needs elaboration.
By following the recommendations in your roof inspection report, you can keep your roof in peak condition and avoid any major problems down the road. Be sure to review the report carefully and address any areas of concern right away.
