Roof Inspection with Certification

Disclaimer: The content of this blog is written by a 3rd party blog writing service and does not reflect the opinions of A.G.G. Home inspections

A.G.G. Home Inspections of Palm Coast offers roof inspections to our clients. This type of inspection is primarily required for insurance companies to verify the roof’s condition. A roof certification inspection is like the four-point inspection simplified and reduced to one component instead of four. We have had clients also call us for a roof inspection after strong winds or a storm. In some cases, our clients noticed water stains to their ceiling and wanted to locate the leak and extent of the roof damage. We also can give a rough estimate on what kind of charges our client should expect from a licensed roofing contractor to remediate the defects.

Your roof is one of the most important parts to your house. Most people don’t realize there is much more to a roof than the shingles you see. Below is a list of some of the components that are inspected that you may not have realized.

Trusses, plywood decking, nails, vapor barrier, shingles, flashing materials, all roof penetrations, skylights, proper attic ventilation, proper “cricket” construction where needed and so on.

There are many types of roofing materials being used in today’s construction practices and all of them have different lifespans. A.G.G. Home Inspections of Palm Coast is well familiarized with these roofing materials with more than 25 years in the building industry. We will make sure you’re well informed on your specific roofing material and supply your insurance company with the proper documentation that may be needed. Below is a list of some materials being used to give you an idea of the lifespan to expect.

  1. 3-tab shingle — 10-15 years
  2. Architectural laminate shingle — 15-20 years
  3. Tile — 25-30 years
  4. Metal — 25+ years
  5. Flat roofing material (Modified bitumen) — 10-12 years.

Insurance companies often require a minimum of 3-5 years of remaining life to a roof. There are many things that can affect the lifespan of roofing materials. For instance, is it a single layer of material or double layer? Have there been storms and high winds? Different weather conditions can drastically affect the lifespan, and many other issues can play a role in it. The lifespan list above gives you just a general idea what to expect from those roofing materials. Obviously, every roof is unique and careful consideration is taken when inspecting a roof to ensure our clients are getting the best inspection possible.

A.G.G. Home Inspections of Palm Coast understands how important it is to our clients to get the most accurate and fair information with documentation to ensure they get the best insurance rates and coverages needed. Our goal is to give our clients the peace of mind they deserve, knowing they received the best inspection and accurate information possible.
