Roof Inspection – What to Look For?

What To Identify In a Bi-Annual Roof Review

You’ll need to look carefully at how well your roof looks in the spring and fall. Our team at Town and Country Roofing is here to help you with repairing your roof or with replacing the entire surface if you need help with it. 

You’ll need to review your roof every spring and fall. A bi-annual review can help you with identifying any concerns you might notice around your roof. The roof inspection should entail a review of the following interests of note, as these are problems that can make the quality of your roof a little less helpful than what you might find in many other situations:

Missing Shingles

Review how well the shingles appear around your roof. Be aware of any missing shingles around your place so you can get them patched up soon. Any situation where you’ve got a massive number of missing shingles all around the home could be a sign that you need to replace your roof altogether.

Lifting Shingles

There may also be times when some shingles around your property have lifted by a bit. Shingles that are curling or lifting may be old and could be at risk of falling off. Again, any situation where lifting shingles are found all around the place may suggest you need a roof replacement.

Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutters are a sign that your roofing tiles are shedding their granules off fast. The added weight from the pellets can cause the channels to wear out after a while. This could threaten the quality of your gutters and make it harder for you to keep your space comfortable.

Flashing Concerns

Review the flashing around your chimney or vents among other places around your roof. The flashing should not be loose or buckling. Any situation where the flashing is not working well could be threatening or concerning.

Exposed Fasteners 

There is always going to be a threat of the fasteners around your roof being presented. The fasteners could become visible due to the surfaces around your roof wearing out and breaking apart. The damages could be significant depending on how intense they are.

Granule Piles

Sometimes you might notice piles of tile granules spreading around the ground. Then again, those gutters might have become filled with enough bullets to the point where they can no longer handle them. Either way, you need to observe for how well the granules are forming among other concerns.

Be aware of what your roof is like during the fall or spring season. Make sure you complete a full review of your place, so you know what your roof is like and that you understand what you are getting out of your work. You can reach us at Town and Country Roofing if you have any concerns surrounding the quality of your yard and how well the place looks.
