Start with a Visual Inspection e best starting point in determining whether your roof can be restored is a simple visual inspection. Some things to look for are pools of standing water, tears or bubbles in the roof cover, wet insulation, cracking seams and gaps in fl ashing. ese issues can accelerate the deterioration of the roof cover and lead to leaks, mold growth and failure during a windstorm. Problems can also be detected from inside the building—water stains, mold growth and unusual odors are indicators of possible roofi ng issues. Get a Professional Opinion If any of the above problems are present, it's a good idea to bring in a professional who can conduct a thorough inspection. is inspection should include use of equipment to locate moisture beneath the surface, a core analysis of underlying materials and an examination of the roof 's slope. It should be followed with a report on your roof 's condition and recommended solutions, including a cost/benefi t analysis of restoration versus replace- ment. If damage is minimal, or confi ned to a small area, resto- ration is likely the best option. Replacement is usually required if damage is extensive or the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.
