Roof Inspection Service
Make Sure Your Roofing System is Strong and Damage Free
Your roof takes a beating over the years. From harsh winds, heavy rainstorms, flying debris, and more, there’s a high potential for roof damage. Most asphalt shingle roofs are built to last around 20 years, so as you get closer to the end of that lifespan it’s very important to pay attention to the health of your roofing system. A professional roof inspection is the best way to make sure there aren’t any issues that could cause major damage to your roof, attic, or other parts of your home.
If you suspect your roof is damaged it is always a good idea to have a professional inspect your roof in case there are any structural issues. You should also call a licensed roofer as soon as you notice any leaks in your attic or ceilings as water infiltration can cause issues that are very expensive to repair. We never recommend going up on your roof without proper training and equipment to ensure your safety. Emmons Roofing & Siding provides free roof inspections to help give you peace of mind. We’re an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor and are licensed and insured in NJ and PA. Contact us today to schedule your free roof inspection.
Professional Roof Inspections
Your roof is only as strong as its weakest points. With so many factors affecting your roof’s ability to protect your home, it’s important to regularly check it for issues. Some problems are obvious to the naked eye such as missing shingles or leaks in your ceiling. Unfortunately, many of the issues your roof may have are difficult to spot, especially from the ground. Hiring a trained professional to inspect your roof is a great way to catch minor issues before they become major problems. This will not only help extend the life of your roof, but it will also shield you from having to undergo costly repairs or a roof replacement before it would normally be necessary.

Common Issues to Look for When Inspecting a Roof
Apart from the obvious issues that can be seen from the ground outside of your home, our trained roofing inspectors will look for the other telltale signs of roof damage. Some issues are often small and left neglected and unfortunately they can snowball into much larger problems. If you suspect any trouble with your roofing system, don’t hesitate to contact Emmons for a roof inspection.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
Often obvious to even the untrained eye, missing or damaged shingles are an eyesore, but they also open your home up to water infiltration. The last thing you want is for water to get underneath your shingles as that is the primary protector of your home. Poorly installed roofs or a roof near the end of its life are most susceptible to losing shingles in high winds.
Typically the most neglected cause of roof issues is proper ventilation. If your roof is not ventilated properly, heat and moisture can be trapped underneath the roof causing an array of issues. Our roof inspectors will take a look at your ridge vent, soffit vents, exhaust vents, and other systems that help let your roof breathe. Proper ventilation will maximize the lifespan of your roofing system.
Ripples or Buckling Shingles
Old shingles, poor ventilation, improper installation, damaged sheathing, and moist underlayment are some of the main causes of rippled or buckling shingles. Any time the structural integrity of a shingle is compromised it is essentially unable to do its job protecting your home. If you can see these issues from the ground, you most certainly need to hire an expert to inspect your roof thoroughly for underlying issues.
Moss, Mold, or Mildew
Not only are moss, mold, and mildew unsightly, but they are also potentially incredibly damaging to your roofing system and detrimental to you and your family’s health. When moisture is trapped on or under your shingles, these problems can arise and should be dealt with as soon as possible. If left unattended they can damage shingles and even get into your attic.
Interior Leaks and Water Damage
There are few things more troubling for a homeowner than seeing water stains on your ceilings and walls. Any time water is present within the structure of your home, there is a high potential for serious problems. Roof leaks typically occur at joints and vents where seals can wear down over time due to exposure to the elements. A roof inspection can locate those issues quickly.
Protect Your Home and Your Family
If our roofing inspectors notice any issues with your roof they will be able to recommend any necessary repairs or a roof replacement. They will discuss your options with you and put together a plan that ensures your home stays protected from the elements for years to come.
If you only have a few small problem areas, we may be able to remedy the issues quickly and effectively with our roof repair services. Whether you have leaking pipe vent collars, missing shingles, missing flashing, or other minor damages, our professional roofers will look for ways to extend the life of your roof without completely replacing it.
