ROOF INSPECTIONS & ROOF CERTIFICATIONS
Many home inspectors will not walk on a roof to avoid the liability for damage. They lean a ladder along the edge of the roof and try to determine its condition from there. While some indications of the condition of the roof may be evident, other major concerns may not be. One of these is the condition of the mastic used to seal around flashings, skylights and fireplaces. Mastic dries out in time and cracks, causing perhaps the major reason for leakage into homes. It is therefore imperative that this be checked.
