What to Expect From a Roof Inspection: The Ultimate Guide  

Your home’s yearly roof checkup is important. Your roof is your first defense against bad weather, hot days and heavy storms. Whether you’re facing structural issues or simply want an inspection, understanding the professional process can help. Below, we’re covering the ins and outs of the roof inspection process.

Breaking Down the Roof Inspection

Your professional provider will “break up” your roof inspection into four sections:

  • The structural inspection
  • The material inspection
  • The interior inspection
  • The workmanship inspection

Let’s cover each section

The Structural Inspection

First, your roofing inspector will check for uneven roof spots. They’ll also check for sagging. In addition, they’ll check your roof’s fascia, soffit and gutter system. If you’ve asked for a chimney inspection, too, they’ll inspect your chimney for crumbling grout, cracks and chimney cap damage. 

The Material Inspection

Next, your inspector will check your roof for missing, loose or curling shingles. Once they’ve inspected the shingles, they’ll look for rust, moss or mildew. They’ll also check your roof for missing fasteners or flashing. Vent pipe seals and rubber boots will be examined for deterioration or gaps.

The Interior Inspection

It’s important to examine a roof’s underbelly, too. Once your inspector has double-checked the exterior’s structural and material integrity, they’ll check the interior for the following:

  • Leaks
  • Stains
  • Rot
  • Mold

The Workmanship Inspection

Finally, the thorough inspection will cover your roof’s workmanship. Before your roofing inspector finishes, they’ll examine your roof for incorrect flashing. They’ll also examine the roof’s different penetrations, like its skylights and vent pipes, for structural integrity.

Are Your Gutters Ready for South Carolina’s Spring Pollen? Find Out!  

Pollen. For some of us, it’s what makes us sneeze and our eyes itch or burn. For most of us, it’s what ends up in our gutters. Pollen is small, fluffy-like stuff, but it adds up quick and can accumulate in gutters. That proximity to your living can exacerbate the sneezing as much as it can cause havoc to your gutters — it can become sticky in the gutters and hold other debris in place so it doesn’t wash down properly. Here’s how to tell if your gutters are ready for South Carolina’s spring pollen.

Are Your Gutters Ready for South Carolina’s Spring Pollen?

This question can be answered by answering a few other questions.

  • Examine your gutters, are they filled with leaves, twigs, or any other kind of debris? If so, your gutters aren’t ready and Spring pollen will worsen the condition with its sticky accumulation.
  • Are your downspouts clogged with debris?If your downspouts are clogged, then when it rains, the rain won’t be able to wash the pollen out properly and will just add to the clogging effect. Soon, you could have rain water and everything with it spilling over the gutters rather than running down the downspout as it should. Overtime, this can cause other problems to the infrastructure.
  • Are any parts of your gutters cracked, bent, or separated?If so, sticky accumulation of Spring pollen can aggravate the situation. When the pollen collects, it can hold other debris in place and the added pressure can intensify the cracks.

Before Spring pollen worsens, you want to check your gutters to make sure they are ready to handle the added pressure pollen can carry with it. You likely have two options after active fall and winter seasons: clean your gutters yourself or hire someone to do the gutter cleaning. If your gutters are damaged, you’ll want to get them repaired as soon as possible, too. Time is of the essence, so get outside and check your gutters.

What our clients are saying
“I used Premier Roofing to inspect and eventually replace our roof without any issues. Nothing but great things to say about all of the staff we spoke to on the phone and in person, and the installation crew. The roof looks amazing, cleanup was solid, and you wouldn't be able to tell they were even here if it weren't for the clean new shingles.”
