Roof Certification Inspection

What Is A Roof Certification Inspection?

The Roof Certification Inspection is commonly requested by Florida Insurance Companies when your roof is nearing the end of its useful life. The inspection is completed by Florida licensed home inspectors who inspect and report on the condition and life expectancy of your roof.

After completion of the roof certification inspection, a home inspector will deliver you a two-page report on your roof which will detail damages, repairs, and other concerns attached with pictures. That report is then sent to your insurance agent who will evaluate the report and give direction on what is needed.

Lifespan Needed On Roofs

Due to Florida’s history with hurricanes, insurance companies are using real-world data to estimate the life expectancies of roofs. Therefore, while a home inspector may report that your roof has 3 years of life remaining, an insurance company most likely will request you replace your roof. This is because most of the roofs with 3 years and less of remaining useful life do not survive through the next major hurricanes. Most insurance companies will want at least 5 years of life remaining before you have to replace your roof. Learn more about the lifespan needed on different roof coverings.

What You Can Do

To keep your insurance premium as low as possible, while not having to replace your roof, you should keep up with the regular maintenance of your roof. Find out if your insurance requires a roof inspection. Here are a few tips:

  • Ensure your roof is clean of debris, moss, and dirt. Make sure you have no rook leaks.
  • Have your roof inspect after a major wind event. Learn how to inspect your own roof.
  • Have your roof inspected at least every 2-3 years by a home inspector.
  • Complete professional roof repairs as needed. Contact a roofing contractor for this.
  • Always keep an eye on the condition of your roof.

What We Inspect

We conduct roof certification inspections in the Greater Tampa Bay and Orlando Areas. If you need a roof certification inspection, this is what we will be looking for.

Roof Age

The report will reflect the estimated age of the roof or, if available, the age shown on permitting information.

Signs of Damage

Any signs of damage, such as cracked tiles, deteriorated shingles, leaks and water damage, are reported.

Life Expectancy

Our inspector will conduct a visual check of the roof and attic to determine the expected life remaining.

Jeff was great! The report was detailed and all the issues were highlighted. We called them to recheck the property after the repairs were done by the sellers and he called me and went through everything over the phone. Since we were in a different state, having someone we could trust to be our eyes was very helpful. Thank you Jeff!

Another great inspection. This was our second time using Waypoint and it was a job well done. Very detailed with pictures. Both times our inspector was Eddie, let’s just say he knows his job going above and beyond our expectations. Thanks Eddie. I forgot to mention customer service reps doing booking are also a pleasure to work with. Again Eddie's the best.

We met AJ when we had our first inspection and he was so thorough and patient with answering all the questions my husband and I had. I especially liked that he spoke to us so we could understand and not throw a bunch of words at us that we are unfamiliar with! I especially appreciated that even though we didn’t see him during our second inspection, that he called us and again, was thorough and I felt that he advocated for us. Thank you so much, AJ!

Our inspector with Waypoint was Hernan & he was great!!! So personable & professional. Most of all very thorough & detailed. We bought a new construction home & against almost everyone’s advice we got our own private inspection & I am so glad that we did! He found things that we would had never noticed on our own from roof issues, irrigation systems, & unleveled concrete. Thank you Hernan!
