Roof Inspection and Certification

Roof Inspection and Roof Certification


A Professional Roof Inspection Report from us can save you thousands of dollars.

What we do: South County Roofing specializes in roof inspections for potential home owners, mortgage lenders and can we make sure the roof meets FHA standards for home in Orange County. We give you an unbiased opinion on the condition of the roof and the structural members related to the roof coverings. We include a complete analysis of the existing roof system (s), replacements costs, roof repair costs, recommendations, pictures of anything you will need pictures of, and a comprehensive four page Roof Inspection Report. We provide roof inspections for Mission Viejo, Trabuco Canyon, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, and Irvine.



How do we do that: Brian Atkins owner of South County Roofing will meet you at the property with a guaranteed time of arrival, perform an exterior building perimeter checking for signs of leaks or roofing related problem that you should know about and walk the interior of the property using a high powered flashlight to check ceilings and walls for any sign of a roof leak. It is critical to have a trained eye for this part of the inspection. Many problems related to the roof only show signs below the roof. In fact there may be no sign of damage to roof itself. That is why it is common for many roofers to miss potential damage because they did not do a thorough enough job on the ground. The last part is the visual roof inspection performed by a highly experienced roofing inspector. We serve all of Orange County from Yorba Linda, to Anaheim, to Newport Beach, to San Clemente.



What we don’t do:
Send out an employee to do this service or simply pop up a ladder, go up on the roof for a few minutes, look for something they like to repair or replace, and then come down and give you the bad news. This may be free in some instances but don’t be fooled. It could turn out to be the most expensive free advice you’ve ever had. In this case bad advice is not free it could be very costly.

Why a buyer needs a professional Roof Inspection:
A professional roof inspection gives the buyer more detailed information on your roof than your basic roofing estimate and you will need this in order to make a wise decision. With our Roof Inspection service, you get a highly qualified inspector who will take an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential roof to:

  • Evaluate the physical condition: structure, construction, of the roof system (s)
  • Identify items that needs to be repaired or replaced
  • Estimate the remaining useful life of the roof system (s)
  • Check the roof carefully for broken roof tiles and photograph them
  • Make sure roof plumbing and heating flashings are sealed and have the proper storm collars
  • Inspect skylights for cracks and proper roof flashing details
  • Photograph all roof valley sections that have excess debris and proper roof valley flashing
  • Look for loose, displaced, missing, or slipped roofing or roof tiles
  • Photograph and document previous roof repairs giving you an insight into the roofs history
  • Provide our exclusive and professional four page written roof report (this could help gain the confidence of the seller that findings are valid and need to be dealt with)

What goes into a Roof Inspection: A South County Roofing “Roof Inspection Report” gives the buyer an impartial, physical evaluation of the overall condition of the roof and items that need to be repaired or replaced. Our inspection will provide a detailed four page report that will be emailed to you (the client) within 24 hours of doing the inspection, and we will provide pictures of important repair items via a link on the internet that will allow you to simply access the pictures. The report will cover the condition of the roof, the type of material used, the roofs reasonable life expectancy, and it will consider any additional roof components such as structural members, dry rot that involves the roof, and address the roof ventilation system.

Be an Informed Buyer:
It is your responsibility to be an informed buyer. Be sure that what you buy has a satisfactory roof covering in every respect. You have the right to carefully examine the roof on your potential new home with a qualified Roof Inspector. Ask for Brian.
