Virtual and In-person Inspections


Pro-Active Attention to Your Roof

There are five times when your roof should be inspected:

  1. On a Yearly Basis to ensure the integrity of your roof and its components. This averts unseen damage to your home's interior and more costly damage repairs in the future.

  2. Roof Damage - When you think you have wind or hail damage due to storms - you see missing shingles, or have leaks in your ceiling, skylights or around your chimney. 

  3. An Aged Roof (without maintenance or repairs)

  4. Before Making a Claim and before contacting your insurance agent to address any issues and verify the need for repairs or replacement.

  5. When Listing Your Home and before the general inspection to know of any issues that might affect the listing, require contingencies on the sale, and repairs to be preformed prior to listing .
