If you decide that it is time for RRSA in Vero Beach to come give you a free professional roof inspection, the following is what you can expect:

The following areas will be visually examined:

  • •The structure of the roof
  • •Underlayment materials
  • •Flashings
  • •Roof covering materials
During the inspection your RRSA Vero Beach professional roofing consultant will walk along your roof, lifting up shingles at the edges to examine the flashing, underlayment and sheathing. If they cannot access certain areas of the roof for safety reasons they may use a camera.

Often our professional roofing consultant will use a nuclear isotopic meter to count the number of hydrogen ions present in the roof. More ions indicate the possibility of water in the structure. Since your home is in Florida, the humid capital of the world, it is very possible that you have water in the structure of your roof. Electrical meters can measure your roof’s ability to conduct electricity. A roof with wet areas will conduct electricity better than a dry one.

Once our RRSA Vero Beach professional roof consultant has completed your free roof inspection, they will let you know if any deficiencies were found. They may also be able to estimate the remaining lifespan of the roof and provide you with an inspection certificate.


Below are some things that we will look for when inspecting your roof.
  • •Shingles that buckle – Caused by improper installation
  • •Improper layers – Asphalt shingles that are applied in layers that are thicker than recommended can lead to an unnecessarily heavy roof structure.
  • •Flashing – If flashing is not properly installed and in good condition, it could create moisture and mold problems.
  • •Exposed or absent underlayment – The underlayment material is made of felt. If this is exposed, it can quickly lead to leakage. If there is no underlayment, any moisture that gets in through the roof cover can damage your home.
  • •Inadequate roof sheathing – The sheathing that is used on the roof must be approved for this use.
  • •Storm damage – Shingles may be removed, cracked, pitted, worn and weathered from damaging weather.
Roof inspections should always be done by a roofing professional. General home inspectors do not typically have the training to conduct these types of inspections. You probably do not have the safety equipment necessary to properly inspect your roof either. This job is best left to a professional. RRSA Vero Beach is a national roofing company and a Master Elite Contractor for GAF roofing products. Professional is our middle name.

**If roof damage is left untreated, you could end up with moisture problems, structural damage, electrical issues or mold. Regular inspections minimize damage and can prevent you from shelling out your hard-earned money on something that could have been prevented. They can extend the life of your roof and help you stay protected and dry in the safety of your home.
