As we are inspecting your home there are certain things home inspectors look for to ensure your home is safe and secure. These are just a few of the items. It’s clear after reading this document how a detailed inspection can save you from buying a well maintained home over a home that is not going to last much longer without major financial investment in repairs. Again, this is just a few areas we inspect.
Is the ridge (peak) showing a sag, or is it straight and level?
Is the roof sagging between the rafters or trusses?
Are there any signs of deterioration of asphalt shingles, such as curling, wasping, broken edges, rounded corners or key holes (slits) becoming wider that normal?
Any loose flashing’s, at the chimney, roof-to-wall connection or elsewhere?
Does the wooden roof deck appear rotten or de-laminated under the last row of shingles?
Are there any roof vents visible? Dryer vents – clear or blocking airflow?
