Tips to Pass Your Roof Inspection in Florida

To keep your roof in the best shape possible, and make filing insurance claims much easier, it’s important to have your roof inspected at least annually by a roofing professional. During that

inspection, the roofer will climb up on your roof and walk around the perimeter, checking the roofing material, drainage system, penetrations, and more. In this post, we’ll discuss simple things you can repair to ensure you pass your annual roofing inspection every time.

Make Repairs

You want your roof to be in tip-top shape before any inspector shows up. Before your annual roofing inspection, be sure to repair all:

  • Roof leaks
  • Damage to shingles, metal, or tiles
  • Damage to the drainage system
  • Damage to the roofing ridge
  • Damage to roof vents

For elements that are damaged beyond repair, replacement may be required. Replacing a few shingles now can save you thousands in roofing repairs and replacement later on.

Tidying Up

Along with making any repairs that are needed on your roof, you’ll also want to remove any hazards such as fallen debris or exposed nails. Giving your roof a once over with a scrub brush and broom can help break down algae buildup and get rid of tree debris.

Check Peripheral Structures

Your roof is protected around its perimeter by soffit, fascia, and flashing. These materials keep your roof’s wooden structure dry. Make sure these items are in good repair and replace them if needed.
