Roof Inspection

Whether you are looking to repair or replace your roof, it all starts with a roof inspection.

These inspections are the first step toward nearly all roofing services. These inspections are absolutely essential, as they give experienced professionals the chance to review a roof before deciding what the best methods for the project will be. Danco Roofing’s inspectors are quick and communicative, giving the client everything they need to know about their upcoming roofing project without any hassle.

A roof should be inspected in a variety of contexts. Danco Roofing recommends most buildings, especially commercial buildings, be inspected bi-annually. This is especially important regarding warranties, as most manufacturers’ warranties are void if the customer cannot provide evidence that the roof has been maintained, which our Asset Management Program aids clients with. It is also beneficial for a roof to be inspected after severe weather. Inspections may also serve as an area of appraisal when considering the purchase of a property.

While it may seem simple, roof inspectors must account for an enormous number of possible damages and building design components that could drastically change the best process for the job. The inspection begins even before touching the roof. From the ground, the inspector will assess a variety of qualities about the roof and the building it covers. For buildings with gutters, inspectors will likely first look at those, in addition to soffits and fascia (these are the pieces that connect the exterior wall of a building to the protruding edge of the roof and gutter). These will be looked at again on the roof, but checking for potential damage (especially water damage) from all angles is vital for these systems.

After concluding everything that can be done from the ground, the inspector will go onto the roof. The inspector will first identify the age and material of the roof, which gives them an idea of what signs to look for regarding potential damage and vulnerabilities. Vent pipes, roof vents, and other equipment installed on a roof (like a commercial HVAC system) introduce potential vulnerabilities, so these areas need to be looked at closely. However, this is not the only area of potential damage. Flashing, metal strips used to divert water from places where two pieces of roofing meet, will also need to be meticulously inspected as building codes are especially strict on them.
