Home Inspector – Roofing Inspection

Home Inspectors perform roofing inspections during a home inspection.  One type of roofing material that is often inspected is the asphalt shingle (aka composition roof).  In this home inspection video blog I walk you through the basics of an asphalt shingle roof inspection I conducted in Petaluma Ca.  A home inspector will often give a range of expected service life and this case roof is at the end of its useful life and should be replaced and this was stated in the home inspection report.  For home inspection purposes, the roof will be noted at the “end of its useful life” and use of the general terms is commonplace.  There would also be notations at to specific conditions, such as:  missing shingles, excessive granular wear, and loose shingles in the home inspection report.
