Roof Inspections for Your Wylie Home’s Roof

Having a roof inspection is important, especially if you are buying or selling a home. With the right inspector to do the inspection of your Wylie home’s roof, you’re able to find out everything that is wrong with it and what needs to be done in order to have it in good working order.
When you call a Wylie roofing company to come do this inspection, you should know what to expect to ensure that they are covering each and every little detail.

Inspection Process

The roof has to be completely inspected including installation defects, manufacturer defects and natural weathering. Each spot should be thoroughly inspected. One of the biggest places to look are if the home as skylights and in each of the eaves of the roof. These areas are more likely to withstand wear throughout the years. They are small areas where water can seep in and sit for some time, allowing damage to happen over time.

Roof Ventilation

Proper ventilation in the roof has to be looked into to ensure that the air is moving through the attic completely and that humidity and dampness is not sitting up there, seeping into the walls and causing further problems. The ventilation is something that should have been dealt with when the roof was initially installed on the Wylie home, but all too often, many roofs that are inspected do not have the proper ventilation which is the cause for the problems that are found.

Roofing Material

Depending on the material that the roof is made out of, the inspection process might be done differently. For example, a metal roof might be easier to spot out problems since it is a smooth surface where wear and tear is more noticeable. Asphalt shingles are more noticeable when one of the shingles is missing from the roof.
The underlying materials and the flashing on the roof should be properly placed and not damaged. Flashing is important since it protects the wood that makes up the roof and without this material, the water is able to seep into the wood and cause further problems.

Gutter System

The gutter system is a large part of the roofing system. This is because your water needs to go somewhere and in order for this to happen, it has to have the proper system to move the water away from the home. Considering this, the system has to have no breaks or leaks along the side of the home. If there is a break in the system, the water will pool up and then be released in this broken area in the system.
