Why We Inspect Your Attic During A Roofing Inspection

October 17, 20223 min read

When your roof gets inspected by our team of professionals here at Reitzel Roofing & Exteriors, you will also get your attic inspected too. This confuses a lot of our clients, but it really is a vital step for us to learn more about what in your roof needs to be repaired or even replaced.

Many roofers cut corners and don’t even come near your attic when doing their inspections or even working on your roof. But here at Reitzel Roofing & Exteriors, we care about you and provide you with the highest quality roofing service so that your roof will last a lifetime.

In this blog, we will discuss all of the reasons why we will inspect your attic along with your roof during your complimentary roofing inspection.

Now, let’s get into it. 

Why We Inspect Your Attic During A Roofing Inspection

Insulation Evaluation

The roof of your home is the only part of your home where your insulation is visible. So, taking a look at your attic gives us a clear understanding of whether your insulation is up to par. 

If you do not have the proper amount of insulation, you are wasting a lot of money keeping your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter, so you will likely need a roof replacement.

Another reason why we look at the insulation in your attic is to see if there is any water damage, and if that water damage can be traced back to your roof. We’ll discuss this more below.

Ventilation Check

An attic that doesn’t have proper ventilation also leads to higher costs for you to heat and cool down your home, but there is an even more significant factor about ventilation when it comes to your roof. Inadequate ventilation can lead to excess moisture in your attic, which over time leads to mold, which will damage your attic and roof.

Our team of skilled contractors at Reitzel Roofing & Exteriors will be of service to provide you with a properly ventilated attic to repair and prevent any further damage.

Check For Signs of Water Damage

Like we stated above, your inspector will check for any signs of water damage in your attic, such as stains or streaks on your roof framing, or mold and other types of wood damage. 

We will trace this water damage to the source, and fix the problem through our roof repair and replacement services before it gets worse. It is worth noting that if anything in your roof is damp, then that means there is an active leak occurring, which needs to be fixed sooner rather than later.
