Annapolis Roof Inspections

Detailed Roof Inspectors Here For You

Most people wait to get a roof inspection until after something happens. But roof problems develop over time and can be caught before they become too serious.

At Russell Roofing Company, your roof is our top priority. To make sure it keeps protecting you and your home for years to come, we’re prepared to perform a full roof inspection to get you ahead of the curve and save you money and headaches in the long term.

What’s Included in Roof Inspection Services?

As a homeowner, you can do a visual roof inspection by looking up from the ground and checking to see if there are any obvious repair needs. This is smart to do at least once a year and at least after every serious weather event.

Professional roof inspections go further and look at a lot more. When one of our inspectors comes out to your home, they will:
Structural Inspections
During a roof inspection, the inspector will get up on your roof and check to make sure there is no sagging or other obvious signs of roof damage. These things are difficult if not impossible to see from the ground. They will also check to make sure your soffits and fascia are in good condition and look for damage to the chimney and other masonry work.
Storm Damage Inspection
If a major storm recently came through your area, it’s always a good idea to have a roof inspection done. Even if you can’t see any damage, there could be affected areas or other unnoticeable damage. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so after severe weather, get a professional to come look at your roof.
Materials Inspection
Roof inspectors will also double check to ensure your materials are holding up against the elements. They will look for loose shingles or signs that there might be mold or mildew growing underneath. Older roofs are likely to have more problems, and an inspection is a good way to know if it’s time for a replacement.
Drainage System Inspection
Proper drainage is critical to the long-term health of not only your roof but your entire property. Water can collect and seep under your roof membranes, causing structural damage and also mold and mildew.

Also, improper runoff can cause water to drip to the base of your foundation, which can leak into your basement and weaken the integrity of your entire home. During a roof inspection, we will look at your entire drainage system to spot problems before they become too serious.
Interior Inspection
In addition to inspecting the exterior of your roof, a good roof inspection includes taking a look at the interior too. If your roof is leaking, water is likely to appear in some places more than others. Roof inspectors know where to look and what to look for, helping discover problems before they become catastrophic.
Workmanship Inspection
How your roof was installed plays an important role in its long-term health. And because there are so many roofers out there, it can be difficult to know who’s good and who’s not. As part of your roof inspection, we will take a look at some of the intricacies of your roof to see if there are any areas of concern. Roof penetrations, such as vents and skylights, are particularly important to inspect, as they can easily leak and cause all sorts of other problems.

Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing Inspections

If you’re unsure as to whether or not you need to have your roof inspected, or if you’re unclear about what this entails, here are some of the most commonly asked questions:
How Often Do I Need to Have My Roof Inspected?

There is no set answer to this, though the most responsible one is “as often as possible.” Your roof is too important to ignore. However, you shouldn’t have to do it more than once per year, unless there was some sort of serious weather event that calls for an additional inspection.

If your roof is newer, less than five to ten years old, then you can probably have it inspected just once every other year. However, it’s good to have one done within one or two years of installation, as this is when workmanship and materials issues start to arise.

Of course, if you hire Russell Roofing Company, this won’t be an issue. But it’s still a good idea to have things checked out within a few years of having a new roof installed.

When is the Best Time to Have a Roof Inspected?

If you live in an area with cold winters, fall is the best time to have a roof inspection done. Cold weather, snow, and rain can all impact a roof’s integrity, so it’s best to have things looked at after the cooler weather sets in and before the real winter conditions begin.

Another good time to have your roof inspected is before you close on a new home. Roof repairs and replacements can be big jobs, and they are not what you want to deal with when buying a home. This should be included as part of your overall home inspection, but in case it’s not, make sure to get one done before signing on the dotted line.

How Much Does a Roof Inspection Cost?

Roof inspections take time and require a professional, so they do come at a cost. Expect to pay at least a few hundred dollars for a roof inspection in Annapolis, Maryland, though this may vary based on the exact scope of the inspection and also due to the size of your property. Give us a call to for an accurate quote.

What’s the Difference Between a Roof Inspection and a Roof Certification?

If you start searching for roof inspection services, you may come across the term “roof certification.” This is slightly different from a roof inspection in that it’s less focused on specific issues and more concerned with estimating the remaining lifespan of your roof.

If you’re planning long-term and wondering when you might need to replace your roof, getting a roof certification is a good idea. It’s also smart to include this with a roof inspection, as this will cover all your bases.

Why Do I Need a Professional Roof Inspection?

Although you can do a basic inspection yourself, most homeowners simply don’t have the experience needed to spot all potential issues. Plus, doing a proper inspection requires getting on top of the roof, which is not something you should do on your own. Regularly inspect your home for obvious signs of damage and disrepair, but also make sure to have a professional come out every one to two years to make sure everything is in tip-top shape.

Do I Need to Do Work on My Roof to Have it Inspected?

No, not at all. If after the roof inspection is done the inspector uncovers no serious issues, then you’re all set to go for another year or two. It’s common for roof inspectors to offer some suggestions, but honest ones, like those working for Russell Roofing Company, will differentiate between pressing issues and ones that can wait, helping you better plan for future projects.
