Roof Inspections

Inspect Your Home’s Roof Before It’s Too Late!

It’s no secret that homes and businesses take a beating from Mother Nature throughout the year.

Between our hurricane season and regular rainstorms, your home’s roof is the most important structure and should be maintained regularly to avoid serious roof damages and repair costs.

Standpoint Construction recommends you have your home or business's roof inspected, at least once a year, so that you’re always up to date on the condition of your roof.

Even if you’re not seeing immediate signs of roof damage, such as a leaky roof, this does not mean that roof damage does not exist.

4 Signs Your Roof Should Be Inspected

You may be wondering why it’s so important to have your home or business's roof inspected. This was covered during home or property purchase, right? Wrong. With a roof inspection, our roof inspectors use more in-depth and advanced technologies to assess your roof and its integrity. Specialized tools are used to pinpoint your roof’s specific problem area so that we can provide feedback and a customized plan to remedy your roof’s condition.

Here are some common signs that it’s time for a roof inspection:

Leaks & Drafts

Perhaps the most obvious sign that you should have your roof inspected is if you’re noticing roof leaks or drafts throughout your home or business. This is an obvious sign that the building has experienced damage from outside forces and should be addressed immediately to avoid further, more serious damage.

Signs of Water Damage

From water rings on your ceiling to new mold growth, these can both be signs that your roof’s integrity has been compromised. If your home has a chimney or attic, water damage and mold growth can easily spread to other areas of your roof. This can be caused by missing roof shingles, which you may not even be aware of without a thorough roof inspection.

Clogged Gutters

You may not think of your gutter system when you think roofing, but it’s all related. You cannot have a properly functioning roofing system in place if your gutters are not functioning just as properly. Clogged gutters result in water backup, which can lead to major water damage, as the water has nowhere to go. If you’re seeing pieces of shingles in your gutters, this is also a sign that your home’s roofing shingles are deteriorating.


If you have a metal roof, rust development should be repaired or replaced immediately. As the rust on your metal roof grows, the rust will continue to eat away at your roof which can lead to large holes in your roof, therefore resulting in massive water damage. An open hole in your roof also leaves you susceptible to pieces of your roof falling into your home. Also, critters and other animals can get into your home, or your roof panels can completely fall apart if left untreated.

If you’re concerned with the quality and integrity of your home or business’s roofing system, or if your home has experienced a recent storm, give the roofing contractors at Standpoint Construction a call.
