Your roof is exposed to all the elements, causing wear and tear, URB’n Roofing, and standard industry recommendations are having 2 annual roof inspections.

Another time to have your roof inspected is when there are severe weather events including hail, storms, downpouring rain, and wind. Having these inspections can help detect minor small issues, and rectify them immediately, saving you money, time, and stress.

If you are looking to check your own roof out and do a DIY inspection here are the certain things you may need to look for;

  • Missing, aging, broken or cracked tiles, especially watercourses
  • Algae, Moss, dirt and dead leaves
  • Cracked ridge caps
  • Split flashings on gables
  • General deterioration of tile surface (faded/worn or discoloured looking)
  • Ridge cap beddings falling out
  • Holes or splits around penetrations (eg. Vent pipes)
  • Tiles slipping into valleys
  • Cracked, splitting or falling down gable timbers
  • Squeaking or not moving whirly birds
  • Rusted or split skylight flashings
  • Blocked gutters and downpipes
  • Leaves and debris in valleys
  • Mould or rust on surface
  • Lead head nails fallen off
  • Screws not screwed all the way down or with no seal underneath
  • Rusted screws
  • Missing screws
  • Screws that don’t fit correctly
  • Rust stains running down the roof
  • Loose laps of sheets
  • Cracked silicone joints
