Even the best roofing systems naturally deteriorate over time. Sun exposure, temperature changes, severe weather, and normal building movements (contraction and expansion) will contribute to a roof's wear. Blue Monkey Roofing LLC has maintained roofs across Acadiana, keeping them in good repair and helping to extend their lifespan. Roof repairs are best handled at the first signs of failure. Waiting too long and not correcting the problems can result in leaks and thousands of dollars in water damage to the interior and foundation of your home.

What do roof inspectors look for?
An inspector will thoroughly review the condition of your roof to provide a comprehensive examination of potential issues. Damaged shingles, unusual wear, debris piles, moss or other organic growth, rusted flashing, damaged vents, interior water stains, other water damage, and other factors can all be red flags for an inspector. Your inspector will review all components on your roof to provide the most in-depth review, including shingles, flashing, chimneys, gutters, vents and penetrations, skylights, and decking.
What is done during a roof inspection?
Your inspector will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your roof to pinpoint any potential or existing problem areas. Gutters, downspouts, flashing, vents and penetrations, skylights, decking, and shingles are inspected each time to check for wear. If your home has been reroofed in the past, the inspector will check the integrity of the shingle layers to ensure it is still waterproof. Every part of the roof is inspected to ensure that the most important protective feature of your home is working properly.
Why do I need a roof inspection?

What will fail a roof inspection?
Several factors can cause a roof to fail inspection, and while these problems are usually fixable, they can be expensive undertakings. Visible leaking, rusted flashing, decaying decking, widespread loose or missing shingles, broken gutters, structural damage, sagging, and more can all cause a failing grade. Typically, these problems are years in the making and are the result of neglect or ignorance of the issue.
