No matter what kind of roof you have, regular, thorough inspections are a must to assess their condition and stability. This also helps uncover any underlying problems that can worsen later on. This is especially true for flat roofs which are prone to pooling water and water damage. In this post, find out how Texas Traditions Roofing, the top roof replacement and inspection company conducts flat roof inspections.
Inspecting Visible Surface Damage
The first step we take during an inspection is to look for visible, obvious signs of damage on your roof. For flat roofs, we usually look out for signs of bumps or bubbling on the surface which can lead to blisters. We’ll also check out if there are any punctures and seams. Afterwards, we’ll assess the scale of the damage and see what we need to do to patch up the damage.
Inspecting Exterior Structural Components
Afterwards, we’ll check out your roof’s exterior components like the flashing strips. Having a faulty flashing strip can cause problems in the long run since your roof is no longer waterproof and airtight since it protects your home’s interior from the harsh weather elements. Once done, you can contact your roof repair expert to replace the damaged components.
Inspecting Interior Components
Once we’ve checked every nook and cranny of your exterior, we’ll go deeper inside to see your flat roof’s interior components to see if there are any parts that are compromising your home’s structural integrity or energy performance. We’ll make a thorough inspection of your roof board, decking and insulation as these are the components that are usually affected by exterior elements.
