If you own a home, business or commercial property in Boston, you should count yourself lucky. At KTM Roofing, we have you covered for all of your roof inspection needs. You can take advantage of our annual roof checkups to ensure that your roof remains in good shape throughout the year by signing up for one of our preventative maintenance plans.
The roof of your home or business serves as the main defense against weather and storms. Your roof is there for you when you need protection from the snow and strong winds that tear through New England each year.
The moment you begin to notice the first signs of a leak on your ceiling, chances are that your roof could be facing many issues by then – mold growth, structural problems, or damaged insulation, to name a few. Avoid these issues once and for all by allowing our Boston roof inspections team to do what we do best.
While most home and business owners start thinking about their roof inspection following a snowstorm or any other substantial weather event, it might not be the only appropriate time to consider the health of your roof. At KTM Exteriors, we offer preventative maintenance services for our commercial clients to ensure your roof maintains its perfect shape.
Most roof inspections are carried out during the fall, before the onset of winter. The frosty temperatures of winter can impact the efficiency of your roof, and repairs done before the colder months can save you further expenses should the weather be more extreme.
Doing repairs on ice-cold roofs can be challenging and costly. A thorough roof inspection during the fall is important because if you do not identify the issues in time, you might be stuck with a roof that needs costly repairs during the winter, or have to wait until the onset of spring to fix them and suffer additional damages.
Our qualified KTM roof inspectors in Boston and New England can identify all the common roof issues. We complete a comprehensive visual inspection which includes identifying if there are any flapping or missing shingles, or in the case of a flat roof looking for any visible punctures or failing seams. There are issues you may not be able to see on your own, which makes finding a trusted roofing company in Boston all the more important.
Even if your roof is less than 5 years old and has no visible signs of an interior leak. An all-inclusive roof inspection conducted by a qualified roof inspector who understands what to search for is still a good idea. We recommend it once a year. So you’re not caught with unexpected problems with your roof. If you have a flat roof you can inspect for tears for any pulling seams and then contact KTM to make the proper repairs.
For your periodic roofing inspections, particularly if the roof is over ten years old, you should reach out to KTM so we can assess your roof and offer advice.
The moment you request our roofing services, our roofing expert will check for leaks, strange wear and tear, wind damage, organic growth problems, and other issues that might have arisen during asphalt shingles installation or ensuing repairs.
Finally, we conduct our inspection in four facets – workmanship, materials, structure, and interior.
Workmanship Inspection – Our highly qualified inspector will determine if there are any issues related to poor installation that may promote leak risks or other potential problems. Detecting improper flashing of roof penetrations, such as skylights, vent pipes, and chimneys are a great example of where a simple fix can save you in the long run.
Material Inspection – We identify any loose, curling, or missing roof shingles, check for moss, stains, missing fasteners and flashing, and for rust. The accumulation of broken shingles in the gutters and downspouts or around the roof valley is an indication that your roof needs some urgent repairs or replacement. We also examine the seals and rubber boots around your vent pipes to check for deterioration or gaps.
Structural Inspection – We check for sagging and malformation of the roof's substructure. We examine your masonry and chimneys for any signs of crumbling grout, cracks, and dented chimney caps. We will assess the soffit condition, gutter system, and fascia. We will also assess the venting conditions around the attic. Poor ventilation may cause both moisture and heat build-up, which can reduce your roof’s lifespan. It can also increase the risk of an ice dam forming on the edge of the roof.
Interior Inspection – An internal roof leak assessment is done by examining the interior attic, ceilings, and walls for rot, mold, water stains, and other indicators of water penetrating into your home or building.
Once we are done with your roof inspection and have completed our analysis, we send you a comprehensive report regarding the status of your roof. We will also advise on the type of repairs that may be needed. If the repairs are essential, we can help you plan for them immediately so that you don’t have to deal with them during winter.
