Science of Roofing: Determining a Roof’s Condition
Question: How can the current condition of my roof be determined?
Answer: First, you should have a visual inspection done by a qualified technician. You want to make sure there are no leaks or holes in your flashings, or cracks where leaks would most commonly come from. At Simon Roofing, we collect that visual inspection data and input it into our proprietary software program. Then, we also test a core sample of your roof in our lab with a battery of mechanical and chemical types of tests to scientifically determine its remaining useful life.
