Inspection

 

Our inspection includes: 1. Wind Damage Inspection: J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects every roof for damage caused by strong winds.  While missing shingle tabs can easily be seen from the ground, it’s sometimes harder to see shingles that are creased from being blown up by wind or shingles that are no longer sealed properly because of dirt and debris. 2. Repairability Inspection:  Not every roof that has a leak needs to be totally replaced and often we can repair any damage that was caused by improper installation or storm damage if it is localized.  To determine our ability to repair your roof, we test the shingles to determine their pliability.  If shingles are too brittle it may not be possible to simply replace one shingle without damaging the surrounding shingles. 3. Window Inspection:  Sometimes a home-owner calls with us to inspect what they mistakenly think is a roof leak, but what they actually have is a window leak.  If any windows are above the roof line, J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects the window to ensure proper installation and window flashings. 4. Step Flashing inspection:  Step Flashing is used at diagonal roof to wall transitions.  Improperly installed or rusted step flashing is often the cause of major leaks that are sometimes hard to pinpoint.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects your step flashing, ensuring that it is securely fastened and not rusted from years of exposure to the elements. 5. Counter Flashing Inspection:  Counter Flashings are commonly used around chimneys, over step flashings, and anywhere else there might be a roof to wall transition.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects all counter flashings to ensure they are properly sealed. 6. Drip Edge Inspection: J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects both the eaves and rakes for installation of drip edge.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd always suggest the addition of drip edge for a worry-free roof installation. 7. Chimney Inspection: Another common area for leaks is chimneys.  Though the chimney isn’t necessarily part of the roofing system, it can cause major leaks that are often mistaken for a roof failure.  To rule out any possible problems with the chimney, J.O.N. Roofing Ltd visually inspects the chimney to assure it’s sealed properly and can protect against water intrusion.
A traditional home inspection may miss vital roofing issues!! Protect your current or future investment!
8. Pipe Boot Inspection:  The number one cause of leaks on most roofs is the deterioration of the pipe boots that seal around plumbing exhaust vents.  Most roofs around Atlanta are roofed with a plastic boot that has a neoprene seal.  Due to ultraviolet light, the neoprene dry rots and allows water into the home.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects the seal on all pipe boots. 9. Valley inspection: J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects all valleys (where the roof planes intersect) for proper installation and the use of Ice and water shield.  Heavy rains can cause rushing water to penetrate beneath the shingles and without proper flashing, water will enter the home. 10. Decking Inspection: J.O.N. Roofing Ltd visually inspects the decking during roof leaks to help pinpoint the leak and to check for any rotting that may have occurred.  Roof decking cannot be fully inspected till the current roofing is removed. 11. Roof Ventilation Inspection:  Most homes with roofs over ten years old are improperly ventilated.  A proper roof ventilation system is evenly balanced at the eves and ridge to ensure airflow beneath the decking.  Roof vents help keep the attic cooler during summer and prevent condensation buildup in the winter – when cold air from the outside meets the warmer air in your attic.  We inspect your roof to make sure there is enough ventilation for your roof size.
12. Nail Head Inspection: An uncommon problem that is found on older roofs is improper nailing.  Some installers nail too high or too low and even worse, don’t use enough nails for the shingles they are installing.  A more common problem that home-owner’s notice from the ground is called “nail pops”.  Nails can back out during expansion and contraction of the decking and cause the shingles above to pop up.  The nail heads can cause small holes as they rub against the shingles if they are not removed.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd will check for any nail pops and ensure shingles are properly nailed with enough fasteners. 13. Blistering Inspection:  Asphalt based shingles can sometimes blister in the hot Georgia summer.  Blistering is caused mostly by one of two ways.  Moisture can get trapped in the shingle during the manufacturing process. When the sun heats the shingle, the water can blister up beneath the granules that cover the shingle.  Another cause of shingle blistering is improper ventilation that causes the shingles to get too hot and they start to blister.  Blisters themselves are not always a problem; however the blisters eventually pop, causing the granules that protect the shingle from ultraviolet light to fall off.  J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects the roof for signs of blistering that cannot always be seen from the ground. 14. Hail Inspection: Most home-owners are leery of filing unnecessary claims with their home-owners insurance company when it comes to roof damage due to hail.  To better help the home-owner in the decision making process, J.O.N. Roofing Ltd inspects your roof just as an insurance adjuster might.  Though adjusters will make their own call on what is and isn’t hail damage, we always do our best to let you know beforehand, of the damage found on your roof. The goal of our roof inspection is to thoroughly inspect the entire roofing system to ensure that no part is weak.  We strongly believe that it is more cost efficient for the home- owner to take care of a potential problem before it becomes a major issue that could consequently call for a completely new roof.  If you have any questions about our inspection process, please call me personally at 902 760 3128 and I will do my best to address your concerns.  Also, feel free to email me at: james@jonroofing.ca and we will reply with any additional information you might need.
