The checklist below is a sample of a comprehensive inspection:
Our expert roofers will take note of any problems they find and make sure you understand all your options for correcting the issues, as well as the cost of the job. If we feel you need to replace your roofing system altogether, we will work with you to get the job done at a price you can afford.
We will listen to all your questions and carefully explain how we came to our decision and why. A little planning on the front end to find the right roofing company will help this process to go smoothly, as you will have reason to trust us!
We provide a yearly inspection with all our roofing services. We know it’s costly to repair or replace your roof, so we want to do all we can to help prevent a major expense down the road. Be sure to ask about warranties too. You might be surprised at how many repairs can be covered by warranties that come with the roof installation. It’s always a good idea to spend the small amount on a good warranty to avoid a huge cost later down the road. In the case of storm damage, you need to have your warranty information in hand and talk to your roofing company as soon as you know of the damage.
If you find piles of coloured grit from asphalt roof tiles in the gutters, that’s a bad sign — those sand-like granules cover the surface of roof shingles and shield them from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. Check the age of your roofing and see if it’s nearing the end of its life cycle.
Moss eradication begins in the fall. Apply a moss killer intended for roofs (granules for lawn-use contain iron which will stain a roof).
In the spring, use a broom to remove remaining dead moss. Spread moss killer along the ridge of the roof and on any remaining green patches. Cost: $20 for moss killer to treat 3,000 square feet of roof. Allow about three hours to sweep the roof, clear the gutters, and apply the granules.
Did you know that storm-related damage is covered under your homeowner’s insurance if it’s detected in a timely fashion? That’s why we recommend at least two roof inspections per year. An insurance adjuster will have to come to the house to do an inspection before the claim is covered, but having our professional assessment documented can help you get your claim approved.
According to MSN Real Estate, leaky roofs are the #1 most-overlooked problem missed by a routine home inspection. Calling on a licensed Overland Park Roof contractor to inspect the roof before you buy a home is one of the best things you can do to protect yourself as a consumer. You may be able to negotiate the cost of a new roof in your real estate deal before closing.
Bear in mind that most warranties will cover your roof for 15-30 years, but the damage that comes from storms or other inclement weather often is not part of that warranty. Make sure you understand what your warranty covers and make a plan for yearly inspections to be made so your roof stays in top-notch working condition for as long as possible!
