Conducting a Roof Assessment

San Antonio roofersA roof assessment is an important tool to help you determine if your roof needs repairs or a total roof replacement. The goal of the roof assessment if to help you determine the condition of your roof and to help you determine the remaining life expectancy. As your local Austin roofers, we have years of experience inspecting and assessing residential roofs to determine their condition.

During our assessment, we will consider the following things:

  • What is the current condition of your roof? Are there obvious signs of damage and is it in need of immediate repair?
  • What is the age of the roof? Is it nearing the end of the manufacturer’s recommended life span?
  • Does it have weather damage – this is damage caused by wind, hail, and heavy rains. How often has the roof been exposed to major storms?
  • Has the roof been damaged by tree limbs?
  • Is there adequate attic ventilation?
  • Has water been able to infiltrate the seal and cause damage?
  • Is there obvious external damage to the house including water damage or mold?
  • Has the roof been damaged by animals?
  • Are there structural issues with the roof, design defects, or improper alterations?
  • Are there leaks caused by inadequate drainage?
  • Are there leaks due to settling or defects?
  • Has the roof been repaired multiple times?

After our assessment, we will help you determine the best course of action in order to bring your roof to its best possible condition. We can help you determine if repairs make sense or if a roof replacement would be a more cost effective solution for your home.
