Best Questions to Ask During Roof Inspections

It’s essential to have routine roof inspections to keep your roofing system in its best condition for as long as possible. To that end, you’ll need to ask some important questions about your roof during the inspection to fully understand your roofing system. In this post, ABM Services & Renovations Inc shares some of these questions you can ask.

 Roof Inspections

How Old Is My Roof?

This is one of the most important questions to ask, especially if you’re not the first owner of your home since it can be difficult to discern the roofing system’s age. Keep in mind that the average asphalt shingle roof can last for around 20-30 years, depending on the material quality, whether it was properly installed and the maintenance frequency. With this information, you can understand how old your roof is.

Is the Ventilation System in Good Condition?

Your roofing contractor will tell you just how important attic ventilation is to your roof’s performance. The ventilation system will expel moisture from your home and allow fresh air to circulate around your living space. If you have a poorly functioning ventilation system, you can face serious moisture-related issues like mold growth and more. Make sure to ask if you’ll need to change up your ventilation system.

Are There Any Serious Problems That Need Fixing?

Once the inspection is finished, your roofing contractor will give a detailed report on their findings on your roofing system. If there are serious problems that need to be fixed immediately, like curled shingles or missing flashing, they will recommend some services to help restore your roofing system to good working order.
