What Professionals Looks For During A Roof Inspection

During a roof inspection, there are certain things the professionals at Eastbrook Construction looks for. For a shingled roof here are some of the things we look for:

  • Water Damage – Water damage is huge problem and we want to identify any water issues right away. This can usually be caused by improper drainage, which could be caused by clogged gutters.
  • Shingles – The health of your shingles are also inspected. Missing, rotting, or damaged shingles are always a sign of needing repair.
  • Mold – Mold appearing on the interior or on the exterior near chimneys can be a big sign of water damage.
  • Gutters – Gutters filled with shingle granules can be a sign of the shingles falling apart.  Also, check to see if any major clogs and if gutters are properly attached to the building.

These are just a few items Eastbrook Construction looks for during a roof inspection. Give us a call today at 248-877-9247 for your roof inspection.
