ROOFS AND EXTERIOR WALL COVERINGS
Everyone needs the services of a reliable home inspection contractor for roof inspections. When you find yourself in such a situation, know that you can depend on Rogers Home Inspection. We have the expertise and skills needed to take care of this job. We will make sure that nothing goes unnoticed. The roof of your house and other exterior wall coverings are some of the essential features of your home. They keep your home protected from the elements so that you and your family can live comfortably.
We inspect your roof, intending to verify the condition of the roof covering materials and its various components. If possible, we will climb on the top of the roof and inspect the wear-and-tear of the covering materials to ensure nothing is missed out. We will also check all the roof penetrations such as skylights, chimneys, and vent pipes.
To provide you with a thorough report, we also inspect the attic for any
issues. As improper ventilation of the attic could cause problems with the roof’s structure, it is crucial to verify the ventilation in the attic. This, in turn, will help us ascertain the structural integrity of your house.
After a thorough inspection of your property, we will provide you with an inspection report with all the details. This report will help you understand the severity and implications of the issues. We will also recommend a time frame for the repair work. Give us a call to book an inspection today!
GUTTERS, DOWNPIPES AND EXTERIOR DRAINAGE
Gutters and downpipes help keep the foundation of your house intact by controlling the flow of water. They also help in mitigating basement leakage in certain situations. We highly recommend gutters for places where it rains a lot to keep water away from your foundation. Some homes are designed without gutters with eave overhangs of 1.2m to 1.5m (4 to 5 feet). These features are essential to maintain proper roof drainage. They help keep your roof safe from water accumulation and protect the roof coverings from moisture. If the gutters are damaged, the moisture can seep into the walls and affect the structural integrity of your house. Fixing the drain on time can protect your basement and the health of your home. A proper home inspection will provide you with insights into the health of the external drainage systems in your house.
Hiring a home inspector for attic inspection is a good idea. An attic inspection can help you identify major issues that can affect the structural integrity of your property. When inspecting your attic, we carefully assess all elements under the roof. Our attic inspection includes inspection of the home’s ventilation, insulation and structure. Our services will give you important information that can help you cut down high energy bills, mould, and moisture. Inspection of the ventilation system will allow you to fight poor air quality.
To maintain the good health of your house, you should ensure that your attic is well-insulated. An inspection will also help you identify any leaks, rotting or pests. We also inspect the exhaust ducts and vent stacks to ensure that you are safe in your house.
After the inspection of your property, we will provide you with an inspection report that contains all the repair and maintenance jobs to be done. Our inspector will help you understand all the major and minor issues. Give us a call to book an inspection today!
STRUCTURE AND FOUNDATION
A structure and foundation inspection includes inspection of all visible structural components of the property such as the foundation, floors, walls, columns, beams, ceilings and roof. The assessment also includes an inspection of your attic to identify any issue that risks the structural integrity of your house. We will carefully inspect all the structural components of your home and note any signs of water penetration into the building. We understand that even the slightest sign of condensation or deterioration is extremely harmful to the well-being of your house. Taking care of your home is our responsibility, and we do it efficiently.
If your property is old, there may be small gaps or deterioration in its foundation. Our inspection can help you understand whether the cracks are minor or need immediate attention.
Rogers Home Inspection also offers inspection services for electrical systems. These inspections are as essential as any other home inspection service. We inspect the electrical service entrance, the grounding equipment and the condition, posted capacity, protective devices and location of the main electrical panel. Rogers is a licensed inspector for aluminum wiring and can provide valuable insights to keep your home safe.
The inspection will help you determine the condition of the various switches, lightings, and electrical outlets in the house. If we find any defect with any fixture or lighting, we will immediately bring it to your attention. Rogers understands electrical circuits like no other. He will check the polarity and grounding of the outlets and will also verify the presence and operation of ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI).
HEATING AND AC SYSTEMS
Rogers Home Inspection offers HVAC inspection services. These services focus on inspecting the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems in your home. You might have different types of heating systems in your house. Each heating system works differently and can malfunction differently. We suggest you have an HVAC inspection done annually to identify any potential concerns. This will also give you enough time to fix issues if any.
During the inspection, we inspect permanently installed heating and cooling equipment thoroughly. We also inspect the exterior of the chimneys, flues and vents. We make sure to check the fan, ducts, registers and air filters in a forced-air system. If you have a forced hot water system installed, we will check the circulation pumps, piping and radiators. We can inspect all kinds of systems with ease. Whether you have an oil-based system or a gas-based system, we will identify all the issues in it.
We also look for traces of asbestos insulation when inspecting old properties. Asbestos is usually found in the insulation of old buildings, and any trace could be harmful to your health.
INSTALLATION AND VENTILATION
Ventilation is an important part of your home as it keeps your house safe from moisture buildup and other toxic gases that are released from the furnace. Our certified home inspector will inspect all the vents in the attic to ensure there are no issues there. The attic is usually difficult to inspect and it's the area where most problems go unidentified. Ventilation includes the vents in the attic that help prevent condensation. Inspection of the attic will help us observe the vents properly to prevent any chances of condensation in the house. We can inspect the exhaust fans, attic fans, furnace vents, and water heaters too.
We also make sure that your new ventilation systems are properly installed. For more information about this, feel free to contact us.
Our home inspector will provide you with a comprehensive inspection report. This report will have a list of current issues, and make recommendations to get the problems resolved. Give us a call to book an inspection today!
