Is the roof inspected during a home inspection?

Yes! A home inspector will check many items during the inspection, One of the main items will be the roof. A roof replacement can cost an average of $15,000 for a 2,000 square foot home in California. That is a huge cost that can be avoided with a good home inspection before escrow closes. If issues are found during an inspection, it will allow the seller to negotiate or walk away.

What do I look for on the roof?

  • Cracked or damaged roofing materials

  • Cracked or damaged shingles

  • Exposed fasteners in roofing

  • Cracked or damaged seal around vent and flue pipes

  • Deterioration of roofing surface

  • Areas of ponding on roof surface

  • Algae growth or debris on surface

  • proper installation of roof flashings

  • Skylight lens and housing (if applicable)

In our fully digital report, pictures included, I will state what type of roof covering materials are used and any possible issues found. A roof inspection is included in all of our residential inspections.
