The Go-To Company for Roof Inspections
A professional roof inspection by AST Roofing & Consulting LLC will give you a thorough understanding of the condition of your roof. It’s a good idea to call us for a routine inspection annually, before you buy a house or after a severe storm.
The best time of year to have an inspection done is in the fall. That’s because if an inspection determines that your roof needs repair or a replacement, winter’s cold temperatures will prevent roofing materials from sealing properly. Arranging for roofing services by AST Roofing & Consulting LLC when the weather is still mild means you’ll have a dependable roof over your head once winter is here!
What an Inspection Involves
An experienced roofing contractor will be on the lookout for signs and symptoms that your home is vulnerable to leaks because your roof has sustained damage from a storm or ordinary wear and tear. It may have been compromised by being installed or repaired incorrectly. The following all play a role in the integrity of your roof:
- Roofing materials (asphalt shingles, metal, clay) and components (downspouts, seals, rubber boots, flashing) must be examined. Shinglesmay be curling, loose, missing or shedding their protective granules.
- The structure of the roof will be checked for sagging or uneven planes. Masonry and chimney caps will be inspected for decaying grout and cracks.
- Some of the inspection may take place inside your house, in order to make sure that the venting in your attic is configured properly and there are no water stains, rot or mold on your walls, ceilings or attic.
- Poor workmanship by a previous contractor could be causing problems as well.
