Roof Inspection Process

What Is An ArkCertified™ Inspection?

A properly installed roof begins with a thorough and meticulous assessment. We have designed our inspection process to gather as much information about your home’s damages and potential hazards. We take numerous detailed images to document as much evidence of damage, even if the damages aren’t storm-related – for your information and convenience. For peace of mind, we provide you with all the detailed documentation we found for your records, even if you choose not to proceed with Ark Roofer. Our aim is to provide you with every detail you need to make the most well-informed decision for your home.

Inspection

Our thorough inspection process starts with a comprehensive visual assessment. We take detailed notes, photograph every relevant detail (no matter how minor), and collect precise measurements. This ensures we identify not only storm and hail damage but also any pre-existing issues or an improper roof installation that could be affecting your roof’s structural integrity, or causing unseen damages. Your safety and property are our top priorities. Throughout the roofing inspection, we utilize specialized roofing shoes to protect your shingles from our footsteps, adhere to strict ladder safety protocols to keep us safe, and take precautions to protect your gutters from our ladders.

Inside the Attic

Lastly, we inspect the underside of your roofing system from within your attic to look for signs of leaks and other damages.

  • Decking – Rotted or compromised decking does not only pose a serious risk of water damage inside your home but can also become a dangerous liability for roofing crews working on your roof.
  • Rafters and Trusses – Water damage to the rafters and trusses, can also compromise the structural integrity of your roofing system, requiring even more costly repairs if left untreated.
  • Gas and HVAC Lines – Inspecting that any utility or HVAC line within the attic is up to code ensures that when a roofing crew is installing your new system they will not accidentally puncture any lines that may be near or are touching the decking.
  • Attic Ventilation – We assess your attic’s breathability by ensuring that areas with soffit vents allow plenty of light and that particularly stagnant parts of the attic have proper ventilation.
  • Courtesy Carbon Monoxide Test – Lastly, we will perform a carbon monoxide test for any gas lines to ensure your home’s air is safe.

On the Roof


Once on top of your roof, we take overview images from every angle on your roof so that we can easily reference any area we may need to in the future.

  • Drip Edge, Flashing, and Gutters – Before fully climbing onto the roof, we inspect the edge of your roofing system to determine how the previous system was installed at the edge, which can reveal potential issues.
  • Metal Components – We mark and notate evidence of damage on all metal components, such as pipes, vents, and flashings.
  • Gutters – Clogged or improperly installed gutters can lead to rotted trim, fascia, and even interior staining and leakage.
  • Existing System – We identify and document the specific type and quality of either shingles, metal, or tile so that your insurance claim replaces your roof with the same or like-kind roofing system.

From the Ground

After we arrive, we begin our 360º property walk-around, checking for and notating all signs of damage, weather-related or not.

  • Exterior Home Components – Such as gutter downspouts, garage doors, window screens and trim, AC units, etc.
  • Outdoor Structures – Including sheds, fences, playsets, landscaping accessories, pool area and components, etc..
