Roof Inspection

As a full-service Maryland roofing contractor, Alternative Roofing, Inc. offers inspections and certifications for your roof complete with a detailed report and photographs of problem areas. If you live in an older home in Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Carroll County or anywhere in the Baltimore area, we can give you a peace of mind regarding your roof’s condition.

InspectionWhat We Look For

When we inspect your roof, we look for both obvious and hidden damage. Our trained contractors will examine every inch of your roof, checking closely for the following issues:

  • Torn, loose or missing shingles
  • Rusty or damaged flashings
  • Popped or missing nails
  • Gaps around skylights, chimneys and vent pipes
  • Sagging of the roof
  • Signs of water damage
  • Moss overgrowth
  • Condition of the gutters

We don’t always find these problems, but when we do, we document them with pictures so that you can take a look for yourself.

Why Get Your Roof Inspected?

Your roof is what protects your home from the elements—it takes the hit from the sun, rain and wind on a daily basis. No man-made roofing materials are designed to last forever, and roof inspection is the only way to accurately assess the condition of your roof. You can easily check on your siding, windows and basement as often as you want, but your roof remains out of sight (and often out of mind) for most homeowners.

Getting your roof inspected every 2-3 years in spring or fall will help you catch any problems early and have them fixed before they grow into bigger issues. It’s also a good idea to have your roof inspected following a major storm or prior to selling the house. Even if your roof is under warranty and you don’t care about the cost of potential repairs, keep in mind that most roof system warranties are only valid if your roof is properly maintained.

Don’t Delay Roof Inspection

If you own an older home and can’t remember the last time you had your roof inspected, schedule your appointment today. We know that some homeowners are hesitant about contacting Maryland roofing companies for an inspection, because they are sure the inspector will find something wrong. This is not always the case: some roofs pass inspection with flying colors. At Alternative Roofing, Inc., it’s not in our interest to sell you unnecessary repairs. Our goal is to build relationships with our customers and be the contractor you would recommend to your friends and neighbors.

What Will the Roof Inspection Tell?

Besides revealing any problem areas, the roof inspection will tell how long your roof is left to last. Different types of roofing systems have different lifespans, ranging anywhere from 15 to 25 years. If your roof is approaching its retirement age, we will let you know and help you consider your replacement options. If your roof is still young and in a good shape, then minor repairs is all you need.
