What Does a Roof Inspection Entail?
When some people imagine a roof inspection, they picture someone simply examining the condition of the roof’s shingles. However, if this is the only action taken in the inspection, several significant issues could be left unaddressed, which could result in severe issues in the future.
Our roof inspections in San Jose involve several steps, including:
Checking valleys for cracks and slippage
Ensuring attic ventilation is adequate
Inspecting overhang by eaves and gutters
Checking attic intakes for debris and blockages
Inspecting wall flashings
Ensuring shingles and tiles are properly affixed
Checking for cracked, missing, or loose tiles and shingles
Inspecting storm collar seals around pipes
Ensuring that the R-Value of roof insulation is sufficient

With over 15 years of experience, we understand what issues to look for and ensure that no issue goes overlooked. In addition, we have the knowledge and expertise to determine the most effective remedies for the problems we discover.
How Long Does A Roof Inspection Take?
A roof inspection takes anywhere between 45 minutes and 4 hours depending on the square footage of the property, ease of accessibility, extent of potential damages, type roofing material, and if the attic is included in the check-up. After your roof is inspected, you can expect to receive a detailed report on the condition of your roof and necessary repairs within 7 days.
Can I Inspect My Roof on My Own?
While it is possible for you to climb up on your roof and look for various forms of damage, we would strongly recommend that you not inspect your roof yourself. One reason you should leave the job to professionals is your own personal protection.
Any time someone goes on top of a roof, the chance for serious injuries increases exponentially. Play it safe by staying on the ground and allowing our team to handle the heights. Also, more subtle forms of damage are often overlooked if people have not received the proper training.
Having our specialists perform your roof inspection in San Jose is the surest and safest way to catch all potential problems.
