Roof Certification Inspection

IMPORTANT!    How to be best prepared for your Roof Certification. Upon seeing photos call us with any concerns and we will be happy to assist you with questions 239-340-0375. 

  1. Do you have any receipts or permits for updates to ROOFING. Please have this information available as it will definitely help you.
  2. Do you own a mobile home with a metal or rubber membrane roof that you have maintained regularly. Pressure washing or re sealing is often good practice prior to inspection this is not mandated however a roof that shows well does better on the inspection.      

Why do I need a Roof Certification?

Many underwriters require a documented permit to confirm that your roof is in good standing or when the roof becomes 15 years or older the underwriter wants to confirm the roof is in good shape. The roof certification is often required when renewing or switching insurances. 

Examples of notable deficiencies 
  1. ROOFING - loose, missing or deteriorated roofing may be considered non insurable. Life expectancy on 3 tab shingle roof is 20 years, dimensional roofing 25 years and metal 35-50 years. The underwriters require a minimum of 4 years life expectancy at which point the roof will be insurable for 1 more year as the cut off in life expectancy is 3 years.
