Roof Repair Estimates, Inspections & Reports
A roof inspection is a service performed by a professional roofing company to determine the current condition of the roof. After this is performed, a detailed report is provided, describing any current conditions that need to be corrected as well as recommended preventative maintenance.
Roofing contractors will typically charge their customers $100 or more for a roof inspection and the issuance of the Roof Report. However, roof inspections and reports performed by us are completed at no charge and are usually issued within 1 to 2 business days after request. Roof reports are conveniently emailed within 24 hours of the inspection.
WHEN WILL I NEED AN INSPECTION?
- Purchasing a home as part of the buyer inspection process
- When a seller is listing a property to be made aware of a roof problem that could affect their transaction
- When a roof certification is required by a lender as a condition of loan funding
- When a roof certification is required by a home owner insurance policy
- When a roof certification is required by a buyer, before closing on a property that they are purchasing, to make sure that the roof isn’t going to be a problem after they move into the home.
WHAT IS A ROOF REPORT?
A Roof Report is a written report, that is issued by an individual or by a company that is a licensed roofing contractor after a Roof Inspection has been completed on the roof of a home. The Roof Report provides a detailed description of any current roofing conditions that need to be corrected and any preventative maintenance to prevent a future roof problem from occurring. The Roof Report will provide options, from roof cleaning, roof maintenance, simple roof repairs, major roof repairs, roof restoration, or it may even recommend that a complete roof replacement is necessary.
WHAT ITEMS ARE NOTED IN A ROOF REPORT?
In many cases, a Roof Certification is required as a condition by the Buyer, the Lender, or the Homeowner Insurance Company before a real estate transaction can be completed. A Roof Inspection produces the Roof Report, which contains a description of what roof conditions need to be corrected before the Roof Certification can be issued. Typically, a Roof Report will contain a description of conditions that were observed and discovered during the Roof Inspection. Some of the notable items described in a Roof Report are as follows:
- Number of Roof Layers
- Pitch of the Roof
- Roof Type
- Estimated Age of the Roof
- Estimated Remaining Years of Life Expectancy of the Roof
- Any Noticeable Leaks
- Color of the Roofing Material
- Certifiable Condition of the Roof
- Duration of any Required Certification
- Any Findings of Current Problems or Conditions That Could Pose Future Roof Problems
- Recommendations to Correct Current Problems and to Prevent Future Problems
- Exclusions from Certification
