Roof inspection checklist

Download this checklist to identify needed roof repairs.

It’s important to conduct regular roof inspections to identify areas in need of repair to keep maintenance costs down. Roofs can be damaged by heavy rain or hail, falling trees and more, which can cause further damage to your property if not identified and remediated quickly.

This page will discuss:

  • Roof inspection checklist requirements
  • The purpose of a roof inspection checklist
  • Benefits of using a roof inspection checklist app

What are the requirements of a roof inspection checklist?

A roof inspection checklist should help the user identify damage, leaks, or other needed repairs to a roof such as rust, blistering or curling shingles or cracked caulk. It should also prompt the inspector to look for damage to the chimney cap, vent pipes, and other structural aspects of a roof.

Who uses a roof inspection checklist and why?

Roofers, building inspectors, insurance companies, lenders, and homeowners can use this roof inspection checklist to evaluate the condition of the roof. A detailed checklist helps the homeowner or roofing company to identify any issues in the roofing structures and take timely measures to repair them before they become worse and cause further damage to the property.

Why use a roof inspection app?

A roof inspection app enables users to conduct quick and efficient inspections using their smartphone or tablet, even without cellular or WiFi accessibility. You can attach photos and other multimedia to create a complete inspection report that can be sent to homeowners, insurers, or other stakeholders directly from the property to ensure swift remediation of any issues and prevent costly repairs.
