Questions to Ask About Your Roof Inspection


Regular inspections are essential in maintaining the efficiency of your commercial roof. It’s also important to hire an experienced contractor to look at your roofing and waterproofing system.

Learn more about your roof by asking your contractor these questions during an inspection.

Which roofing parts are you focusing on?

Get details about the most vulnerable parts of your roof. This way, you’ll understand the weaknesses of your roof and confirm that your contractor is familiar with the kinds of roof you have.

What is your procedure for emergency service calls?

Weather extremes can cause damage to your roof, compromising your business. Ask for a detailed explanation about how they handle emergencies.

How will you document the process and service history?

Commercial roofing contractors usually provide CAD drawings, aerial shots, or schematics containing the roof’s information. They help assess the overall condition of the roof and for future roofing projects.

Will you provide photos of the problem areas?

Ask your contractor for before and after photos of your roof if a job was done. The inspector should give photos of proof of damage and repairs.

How will you determine roof moisture?

The latest technique used for finding moisture in roofs is infrared scans. They find signs of moisture that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
