Roof Inspection

What You Need To Know

If you are seeing stains on your ceiling or signs of dampness in your attic, your roof is already compromised. For homeowners who suspect their roof has been damaged by storms, wind or hail, a closer look by a professional is a must. Likewise, if you believe your aging roof may be starting to fail, contact the professionals at S & D Improvements for an inspection before damaging moisture begins to take its toll.

Our roof inspection includes a thorough examination from the ground and up close, so we can ascertain the extent of the damage and whether your roof can be repaired. Sometimes an aging roof can be repaired to extend its life, or a roof replacement can be accomplished over an existing roof rather than performing a tear-off.

Inspection checklist

Depending on your style of roof and materials used, we look for specific signs of age or damage.

  • Asphalt shingles that are buckling or curling at the edges. More than 1 in 10 indicates an aging roof that needs replaced.
  • Missing or cracked shingles that have been torn away.
  • Cracks or rust spots on flashing or around vents, pipes, or chimneys.
  • Missing or damaged components (chimney caps, vents, skylights, fascia, and drip edges.)
  • Excessive buildup of moss or algae.
  • Bare spots on asphalt shingles where granules have been knocked loose by hail, debris, or age.
  • Excessive amount of grit in the gutters from aging shingles shedding granules.
  • Flat or membrane roofs that show holes, blisters, or ponding where standing water can seep into the underlayers.
  • Metal roofing that shows corrosion or loose, bent, or dented panels caused by debris or hail.

At S & D Improvements, our goal is to identify a problem with your roof and provide a solution before damage can spread. Our professionals will advise you as to your options for repair or replacement so you can make the best decision possible. We will work with your insurance company to provide detailed estimates that get you the compensation to which you are entitled and provide you with a secure and watertight roof quickly.
