New York Roof Systems Inspection

Our inspectors will observe and report on readily accessible roofing materials and their condition. This includes assessing the type of roofing materials used, such as shingles, tiles, or metal, and their overall condition, including signs of damage or wear. Our team will also evaluate the roof drainage systems, including gutters and downspouts, to ensure they are functioning properly and effectively managing water runoff.

Additionally, we will inspect the flashing, which is crucial for preventing water intrusion around roof penetrations, such as chimneys, skylights, and vents. Our thorough inspection will also include assessing the condition of these roof penetrations to identify any potential issues that may require further attention.

Our home inspectors will report on the methods used to observe the roof and other components in accordance with industry standards. We will provide detailed information on the observed condition and type of roofing materials, as well as the methods used to observe the roofing, ensuring transparency and accuracy in our reporting.

What and What Not…

It’s important to note that there are certain items that our home inspectors are not required to observe and report on. These include antennas, lightning arresters, or similar attachments, as well as any flue or chimney interior that is not readily accessible. Additionally, other installed accessories and powered roof ventilators are not within the scope of our standard inspection.

Our inspectors are not required to determine the remaining life expectancy of roof coverings, manufacturers’ defects, installation methods, or recalls, or to determine the number of roof layers present. Furthermore, our inspectors will not walk on or access a roof if doing so could result in damage to the roof or roofing material or endanger the health and safety of the home inspector.

At MB Home Inspections, we prioritize the safety and integrity of roof systems in residential homes. Our comprehensive inspections and detailed reporting aim to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your property.
