Roof Experience – Does My Roof Need Replacing?

Does My Roof Need Replacing? | Blair Inspection Services NJ

home inspection essex county njThis is a question that I usually don’t like to answer, but sometimes it’s obvious. A home inspection reports on the “mechanical, structural and safety” deficiencies of a home but not on cosmetics. If a roof appears old and isn’t leaking, it’s a “deferred maintenance” issue.

However, with this roof, there appears to be 3 layers of shingles, including a barely visible green one in the upper right corner (most towns allow only 2 layers of shingles). There has been numerous attempts to patch the roof over decades, and it’s clearly time for replacement.

Through years of experience, I’m able to see some of these issues and short cuts that easily get missed.
