Is your Canton Home Inspector Above the Gutter?

Above the Gutter

Your home doesn’t stop at the gutter, so why should your home inspection!  Have you ever hired a home inspector who did an excellent job around the perimeter of your home, and even a pretty decent job on the interior inspection? Then, he packed up after about an hour or so, and dashed away to some other appointment. If he didn’t spend at least a good three hours or more at your home, chances are he was not very detailed, thorough or spending any amount of time on your roof.
If your home inspector did not point out blisters, punctures or wrinkles ( I do mean on your roof – not on you) then he did not walk the roof. These are items that can only be seen from the rooftop.

Wrinkles are found on your shingles when there is movement between the roof decking, and perimeter. Flashings will wrinkle because of this movement, form a tunnel-like opening and water will spill down into your home. Shingles that are cracked, torn or curled can also be detected by walking the rooftop.  It is also common to find bald spots and accumulation of granules in the gutters. While on the rooftop, the inspector can also check for the proper amount of nails per shingle.   It may seem picky to some, because the present situation does not include any leaks. However, with preventative measures, future problems can be averted. 

 The Next time you need a home inspected, make sure you hire an inspection company that is above the gutter.

A manufacturers defect, known as wrinkling, weakens the shingle and allows an easier route for water.
