Gaithersburg Roof Inspections

Gaithersburg’s Trusted Roofing Company

Thorough Roof Inspector Experts

Roof issues occur over time, not all at once. But, too often, homeowners wait until they have roof damage to call for a roof inspection. 

Many roofing problems can be caught before they do real damage. To make sure that your roof continues to protect you for years to come, it’s important to be proactive about having your roof inspected. At Russell Roofing Company, our roofing inspectors are standing by ready to conduct a full inspection of your roof.

What Does a Professional Roof Inspection Entail?

Homeowners can do a visual roof inspection from the ground to check for any damage or clear repair needs. These should be done routinely and after severe weather to ensure your roof’s integrity.

But, not all roofing issues are that obvious. With a professional roof inspection, you get a more thorough investigation of your roof and its structure. Our roof inspection services include:
Frame and Structure Inspection
Our inspectors look for signs of larger issues like roof sagging that may be a sign of structural damage. We check for other obvious signs of major roof damage that could tell us that there’s an immediate need for roof repair. Other areas inspectors look for issues are around fascia and soffits as well as near the chimney and other masonry spots.
Weather Damage Inspection
When big storms come through an area, it’s important to make sure that your roof’s integrity is intact. Storm damage is not always obvious to the eye, either. Severe weather can lead to leaky roofs or cause smaller damage that may lead to water getting into crevices that go unnoticed. So, even if you can’t see roof damage, call a professional to come out and do a precautionary inspection of your roof.
Roofing Materials Inspection
Our inspectors will check the entire surface area of your roof to make sure all shingles and other materials are secure to continue holding up against the elements. Loose shingles are an obvious sign of damage. They will look for other signs of damage like mold, rot, and mildew that may be growing under your roof. The older your roof is, the more likely it is to have serious problems developing, and the better off you are getting your roof inspected.
Water Drainage Inspection
To maintain a healthy roof and home structure, a proper drainage system is needed. If a drainage system is damaged or not functioning properly, water can pool up and leak under your roof’s membrane which leads to structural damage as well as frame rot, mold, and mildew.

If gutters or downspouts aren’t working properly, water runoff can seep down and create weaknesses in your foundation, and can lead to other issues like basement flooding. Our inspectors will check for even the smallest signs that your drainage system is broken, saving you serious money and headaches in the future.
Interior Inspection
Problems don’t just arise on the exterior of your roof. A thorough inspection will include an assessment of the interior area under your roof. If you have a leak, it may not be obvious from the outside, but water is likely to seep into certain areas inside, giving us signs of an issue. Inspectors know where to look for signs of damage, catching problems before they worsen.
Installation Quality Inspection
Not all roofing companies do the same quality of work. The way your roof was installed will determine your roof’s longevity. Because of this, our inspectors take a look at the intricacies of your roof to determine if the workmanship created any areas of concern. Contact points between roofs and penetrations like skylights and vents are important to inspect as they are common areas where leaks develop.

Roofing Inspection FAQs

If you aren’t sure about whether or not you should have or roof inspected, check out frequently asked questions about the roof inspection process:
How Frequently Should I Call a Roof Inspector?

There’s no one answer for this. The truth is you should have your roof inspected as often as possible. Your home’s roof is an investment that you should protect. By routinely having your roof inspected, you’re proactively ensuring the longevity of your roof and your home. That said, you shouldn’t need to have your roof inspected more than once a year.

If you have a newer roof that’s under ten years old, you can probably do it as often as every two years. If you’ve just had your new roof installed, you’ll want to have it inspected within the first couple of years to ensure that the workmanship is up to par.

But, if you work with us at Russell Roofing Company, you won’t have to worry about this. We offer a full workmanship guarantee so you can feel good about your roof.

What Time of Year Should I Have My Roof Inspected?

If you live somewhere with harsh weather conditions such as cold winters, or heavy storms, it’s a good idea to have your roof inspected in fall or right before or after the harshest weather season. You’ll want to make sure your roof is in good shape to hold up to the elements.

If you’re buying a new home, it’s a good idea to have the roof inspected before you close. Roofing projects can be costly, and you’ll want to avoid having to pay for a big repair or replacement on your new home.

How Much Should I Expect to Pay for a Roof Inspection?

A quality roof inspection requires an experienced inspector that will spend time with your roof. You can expect an inspection to cost a few hundred dollars around the Gaithersburg, MD area. Depending on the size and scope of your roof inspection, the price may vary a bit. Feel free to contact us for an estimate.

What’s the Difference Between a Roof Inspection and a Roof Certification?

If you start searching for roof inspection services, you may come across the term “roof certification.” This is slightly different from a roof inspection in that it’s less focused on specific issues and more concerned with estimating the remaining lifespan of your roof.

If you’re planning long-term and wondering when you might need to replace your roof, getting a roof certification is a good idea. It’s also smart to include this with a roof inspection, as this will cover all your bases.

Why Should I Get a Professional Roof Inspection?

You may think you can inspect your own roof, but honestly, most homeowners don’t have the proper experience and roofing knowledge to properly inspect their home. A thorough inspection requires getting on the roof and doing a complete assessment of the inside and outside of your roof. This is a job better left to the professionals. You should, however, do routine inspections from the ground to check for any visible roof damage.

Do I Need to Work on My Roof Myself Before Having It Inspected?

No, you don’t need to do any work to your roof prior to inspection. Our inspectors are experienced roofing professionals that will uncover any and all roofing issues. Once they’re completed, you will be all set for one to two years. The inspector may offer some guidance, but our team at Russell Roofing will differentiate between serious issues that need addressed and proactive steps you can take.
