Roof inspections are simply inspections that determine the integrity of a roof, how long it may last, and when it will need to be replaced. Roof inspectors are not going to climb up on your roof or the roof of a home you are thinking of buying and pull up shingles or tiles. Roof inspectors have special procedures wherein they can determine the lifespan of a given roof without tearing into it. At first glance it might seem that roofing inspectors would have to pull up part of the roof to do a thorough examination, but if you consider your own roof, you would not want anyone tearing holes in it just to see if it was in good shape.
Play it Safe
Because replacing a roof can be quite an investment, insurance companies and lenders require that this has been checked off. It makes sense for these companies to protect their investments, but you as the homeowner should want this to be secured as well. You don’t want to be stuck with a bill that you weren’t expecting, and you also don’t want to sell a home to a family and put them in the same spot.
Roof inspections are not all that expensive, and these roofing inspections can give you and your lenders and insurance carriers peace of mind. Because when the rain is coming down or there is a foot of snow weighing down your roof, you want to sleep comfortably knowing that you are secure from above.
When To Schedule
After a hailstorm or other significant weather event, most homeowners recognize the need for a thorough roof inspection to determine whether their roof suffered damage. But that shouldn’t be the only time you consider your roof’s health.
Perhaps the most vital time of year to have your roof inspected is the fall, before the cold of winter sets in. Timing is key. Frigid temperatures can compromise the success of new roof installations and such repairs as shingle replacement because new shingles can’t seal down properly when it’s too cold outside. Moreover, attempting repairs on icy roofs can be treacherous, so roof problems uncovered too late in the season may have to wait until spring to be fixed. Another argument for a fall inspection is the fact that certain roof repairs should be initiated in the fall so they can be completed the next spring—for example, treatment for moss and lichen. The solutions used for either of these invaders can require an extended amount of time to work, sometimes up to 180 days. If moss or lichen are discovered during a fall roof inspection, there’s still a chance to get at them before cold weather sets in. Then, the treatment can be working during those long winter months, and the dead lichen can be swept or rinsed off in the spring.

Anthony and The Global team exceeded all of my expectations during our exterior renovation of my home! From stripping down all of the existing siding material, insulating the home properly and installing the new siding everything was completed in a professional manner. The Global team was also very neat, ensuring the property was clean at the end of each day. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GLOBAL FOR ALL ROOFING AND SIDING JOBS.
I have recently relocated to Florida but still have property’s to maintain in Staten Island. My concern was that I would be to far to maintain properties properly. However dealing with GLOBAL ROOFING AND SIDINGS prior to my departure, seeing their work, has made my transition to Florida a SMOOTH AND EASY PROCESS. I WILL “ONLY” USE THEM FOR ALL MY CONTRACTING NEEDS.
I had a ROOF LEAK and called GLOBAL ROOFING BASED ON A NEIGHBORS RECOMMENDATION. They fixed my problem and helped me identify some issues I wasn’t aware of. I decided to get my siding done and found that they were fair and professional.
I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM.
Wish there was 10 stars! I would definitely recommend Global to friends and family! They were extremely professional, reasonably priced and all around nice guys. From the owners to the employees; all top notch!
Even our neighbors complemented us on their work and clean up of the job.
