During a roof inspection, you should ask the contractor specific questions to learn more about your roofing system. Fields Roof Service, Inc. lists some queries you should raise to make the most of the roof inspection service.
What Type of Roofing System Do I Have?
If your home had a different owner before, a roofing contractor can tell you the type of roofing system installed. They can also determine other features the roof may have, such as enhanced algae or impact resistance. They can also inform you about the age and condition of the roof.
How Old Is the Roof?
Old roofs generally have a higher chance of sustaining damage after an extreme weather event. If you’re uncertain about your roof’s age, a roof inspection can give you this information. Professional roofers identify signs of wear and damage in order to figure out how many years the roof has left before it needs replacement.
Is There Any Damage to the Roof?
Any existing roof damage will be exacerbated by a storm. A roof inspector can confirm the severity and extent of damage on your roof. Depending on the issues, they can provide minor fixes and recommend the best course of action to restore your roof’s integrity.
Does the Roof Have Proper Ventilation?
Adequate ventilation can keep the roof and its structural system in excellent shape. Ventilation reduces attic humidity as it lets warm air escape while taking in fresh air from the outside. If you suspect your roof has poor ventilation, your contractor can check it for you and recommend ways to improve it.
