Roof Inspection Resources

home inspector checking roof

Roofing defects are commonly identified during a home inspection. They could be minor issues, for example, loose or missing shingles, defective flashing, or gutter damage. Or they could be more major defects, like inadequate structural support, chimney damage, or significant faults that can lead to major water damage and mold.

It’s not uncommon to find roofs that are in serious need of replacement — something that any home buyer wants to know before they come to a final agreement with the seller.
