Roofing Repair & Inspection
Contact the professionals at Empire Roofing to get your roof inspected today!
A sturdy, well-maintained roof is crucial to maintaining a home’s value, but most homeowners don’t notice a damaged roof unless there are obvious signs of damage to roof shingles or it impacts their lives by causing leaks.
If your roof suffered damage, if it is aging, or if you plan to sell your home in the future, an inspection is an important step to preserving the value of your home and preventing minor damage from growing into a major repair job.
Roof Inspection Cost
The average cost of an inspection by a roofing professional is a little over $200 nationally, although they can be $400 to $600 in Minnesota. This does not take into account changes in pricing due to recent increases in home construction costs.
Professional Roof Inspections
Rot, storm damage, or other issues could put your home at risk for water damage and pose a safety hazard for anybody maintaining the roof or going up on the roof for any reason.
A reputable roofing inspector will look for missing shingles, roof penetrations from branches, and debris. The inspector will examine roof valleys where water might collect and look for telltale signs of water damage. This includes an interior inspection for water stains in the ceiling or attic beneath the area that might be damaged.
The inspector will also look for blockages or damage to vent pipes, gutters, chimneys, and other structures to ensure that they are not blocked, corroded, or unsafe in any way.
The inspector will submit a detailed report of any roof damage or construction elements that are not up to code or that put the homeowner at risk for further damage. If a professional roofer inspected your home’s roof, they might provide a free estimate to carry out simple repairs and correct flaws that could cost money further down the line.
A roof inspector is either a public employee inspecting for code violations on behalf of the government or a private contractor. A reputable roofing contractor might suggest repairs that the homeowner might make but will not pressure the homeowner to hire them to make repairs as a condition of the “free” inspection.
