Read this article to learn what happens during a professional roof inspection and what to look for when you schedule an inspection with your local roofing company.
Scheduling An Appointment
Usually a roof inspection can easily be requested over the phone, through email, or an online submission form. Once you request a roof inspection it may take several days for the roofing company to respond. You may receive a call from the selected roofer clarifying any questions about existing roof issues. A quality roofer will always respond promptly to your request.
Unless you have a specific attic issue, most roof inspections can take place whether or not you are home. Allowing you to maintain your normal schedule and have your roof taken care of at the same time.
There are many aspects to a roofing system and each should be inspected thoroughly during a quality inspection. Sometimes a professional roofer can spot roofing issues from the ground, but most experienced roofers will actually get onto your roof to make sure they don’t miss a thing.

After the Inspection
Depending on the severity of your roof’s condition, it may not require any repair of maintenance of any kind. If an issue is spotted, the inspector will take detailed notes to base their estimate upon.
Your Roof Report
Most estimates will take 1-3 business days to prepare. Giving the roofing company time to factor in labor, material, and equipment costs properly. Then the estimate will be mailed or delivered to you.
A roof repair estimate should be very detailed, yet easy to understand. Including a breakdown of all materials needed, prices for materials and labor, warranty involved, and time frames for project completion.

After you receive your estimate you should make sure to read it thoroughly. Understanding your different options will help you and your roofer make the best decision to keep your roof in tip-top shape.
Your roofing company should either call or schedule a meeting to sit down and discuss your roof estimate. Answering any questions or concerns you may have about your roof and repair options.
