Rio Bravo’s roof inspections

Rio Bravo takes roof inspections very serious considering all the things that can happen to the roofing system. When roofing systems fail, they cause more intensive damage to the rest of the home. Common issues with roofing systems are damaged shingles, improperly installed flashing, improperly sealed penetrations, trees in contact and soft spots. During the home inspection, the roofing system is done prior to doing the interiors, this helps us anticipate where other damage may be in relation to where they might be damage to the roofing system. Vulnerable areas are also checked when entering the attic portion of the inspection. For more information on how we do this, feel free to call or email us.

Type of roofing materials

Roof Flashing

Roof flashing is a thin material, usually galvanized steel, that professional roofers use to direct water away from critical areas of the roof, wherever the roof plane meets a vertical surface like a wall or a dormer. Flashing is installed to surround roof features, such as vents, chimneys and skylights.
