roof inspectionYour roof is the undiscovered hero of your home. It protects you and your family from extreme weather conditions, extreme temperatures, and pesky insects. A regular roof inspection is important to ensure that it stays in good shape.

Roof inspections in Myrtle Beach can check for potential problems, such as missing or damaged items, and will also assess the durability of your roof. How does this differ from a regular home inspection? And how often should you inspect your roof? This article will cover everything you need to know regarding roof inspections.

What are the benefits of a roof inspection?

A professional roof inspector can be hired to inspect your roof for a variety of reasons. You might have discovered a leak and want to make sure it’s not coming from your roof. You may also have experienced strong winds in your area recently and need to inspect the roof for debris or damage.

Here’s a quick overview of the reasons you might need to have your roof inspected:

  • Annual inspection
  • Leaks from ceiling
  • Recent storms brought high winds, debris, snow and heavy rain.
  • Prepare your home for a hurricane or snowstorm
  • Are you looking to sell your home or refinance it?
  • You have not had a home inspection since you purchased your home.
  • The insurance company requested a roof inspection

How Often Do You Need to Schedule a Roof Inspection?

A roof inspection should be scheduled at least once per year. This task should be done in the fall or spring before snow and rain accumulations start to build up. You can avoid costly repairs by performing annual inspections.

If your home was purchased recently and the last time it was inspected was before it was installed, you need to schedule a roof inspection. Your roof could be in poor condition after a decade or more of not having a roof inspection.

What is the cost of roof inspections?

Roof inspections typically cost $210. Depending on the extent of your inspection, the design of your roof and the type of roofing material, the cost of a roofing inspection can vary from $250-$800.

Physical Roof Inspection

Physical roof inspections will involve someone climbing on the roof to inspect the roof. This type of roof inspection is the easiest and relies mainly on visuals. An average roof inspection costs between $75 and $200.

Drone Roof Inspection

If there is too much risk of falling onto the roof, homeowners can request a drone inspection. This inspection is usually done when the roof is extremely steep or difficult to reach. The drone can fly around the house and take photos or videos.

A drone roof inspection will cost you between $150 and $400.

Infrared Roof Inspection

Infrared roof inspections are more expensive than the average roof inspection. Professional roofers use infrared technology to look for indications of damage that would otherwise be invisible to the eye. This includes small cracks as well as leaks. Infrared roof inspections cost on average $400-$600.
