What's wrong with my roof?


Part of the home inspection process is a thorough roof inspection, which, depending on the roofing material and pitch of the roof, will include walking the roof, observation from a ladder, examination from within the attic, and viewing through binoculars.


With a myriad of different roofing materials (Slate, Wood Shakes, Cement, Clay Tile, Metal, Composition Shingles), the things your home inspector is looking for include cracked tiles, loose or exposed fasteners (nail heads), loss of granules on shingles, or missing shingles altogether. Deficiencies in roofing can lead to costly repairs caused by water damage to roofing materials, wood framing, electrical systems, and sheet rock, not to mention personal items stored in attics.
