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
- Roof covering materials
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 roofs 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.
POSSIBLE ROOF DEFICIENCIESBelow 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.
**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.
