Roofs are a critical part of every inspection
Roof are a critical element to your home inspection. Poor roof coverings, soft sheeting or framing, exposed felt, tar patches flashings and valleys etc. are some of the items that we report on.  We further investigate attic and interior ceilings for stains or damage caused by roof problems.  We estimate the age and lifespan of your roof to help you buy with confidence. 

Moisture in contact with wood can lead to damage by wood destroying organisms.

See our sample roof report here.
