Your Home Inspection


Roof Certifications

Roof certifications are not typically included in a regular home inspection and they're not always stipulated in purchase contracts, either. But is require for the most insurance companies

Roof certifications are separate from a home inspection. As part of the Roof Certification, roofing inspectors climb up on the roof and issue reports on:

Possible missing or loose roofing materials

Overall condition of roofing materials

Ridges, caps and drip edges

Soundness of drains, downspouts, and gutters

Flashing around roof pipes, chimneys, vents, valleys and mounting of HVAC units

If the roof does not require repairs, the Home Inspector will then estimate the remaining years of life for a roof and certify its inspection. The certification is good for two to five years, depending on local custom.

If the roof does require repairs, after the repairs are performed, the Home Inspector will then issue the roof certification.

When assessing the condition of your roof, inspectors will take into consideration the following:

Type of Roof

Composition shingle

Wood shake

Clay or concrete tile
