Have an older roof covering that you are unsure of its condition or a newly installed roof; hire an independent, Professional Inspector who will not try to sell you a new roof. I will provide you with an honest assessment of the condition of an existing roof and/or assess the installation of a new roof.

The majority of roof coverings in the greater Houston area are asphalt composition shingles. Proper adhesion and fastening of a shingle is very important, which can only be determined by accessing the roof surface or from the drip edge with a ladder. Proper adhesion and fastening prevents shingles from being blown off or the possibility of water penetration during high winds and rainstorms. Another major issue is flashing. Flashing is to prevent moisture entering the wall or roof through joints in copings, through moisture permeable materials, and at intersections with other penetrations through the roof plane. An inspector should also enter the attic, observing for evidence of water penetration; which could result into water damage to the roof sheathing, structure or interior ceilings-walls. I have mentioned a portion of what is covered in a roof inspection, which is why you want to hire the most detailed and thorough Professional Inspector for a roof inspection.

A tip for homeowners is to perform a visual inspection on your own without accessing the roof surface. Take a high-powered flashlight into your attic once or twice per year during or after rainstorms and look for evidence of water penetration. Outdoors, walk around the building perimeter and look for raised or loose flashing and shingles, or missing shingles.
