Roof inspection Checklist
Visual inspection: This involves examining the overall condition of the roof from the ground, looking for signs of damage such as missing or broken tiles, sagging, or other deformities.
Inspection of the roof deck: This involves checking the condition of the underlying structure of the roof, including the rafters, trusses, and decking. Look for signs of water damage, rot, or other structural issues.
Inspection of the flashing: Flashing is the metal or rubber strips used to seal the intersections between different parts of the roof, such as the chimney and the roof. Make sure that the flashing is securely in place and not damaged or loose.
Inspection of the gutters: Gutters are an important part of the roofing system, as they help to divert water away from the building. Make sure that the gutters are clean and in good repair, and that there are no blockages or leaks.
Inspection of the roof ventilation: Proper roof ventilation is essential to prevent moisture buildup and extend the life of the roof. Make sure that the roof has adequate ventilation and that the vents are not blocked or damaged.
Inspection of the roof surface: This involves checking the condition of the roof tiles or shingles. Look for signs of damage or wear, such as cracks, splits, or missing pieces.
Inspection of the chimney: If the building has a chimney, make sure that it is in good repair and that the flashing around it is secure. Look for signs of damage or deterioration.
