Roof Certification Inspection South Florida

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 life remaining 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. Here are a few tips:

  • Ensure your roof is clean of debris, moss, and dirt.
  • 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 repairs as needed.

They were quick to respond to my first call. Our inspector, Anthony, was on time, polite, respectful, informative and thorough. He was also happy to answer questions, no matter how small. I had occasion to go into the office and was just as pleased with my dealings in there.I will be calling them again. My real estate was impressed with them as well so I think they will be getting many referrals.Thank you for great service!!

The young man was spot on, precise and had a great personality. I actually spoke with him via WhatsApp and my realtor was there for the inspection. I called your man "INSPECTOR GADGET", and we both laughed because he recognized and liked "INSPECTOR GADGET". He did a very thorough-excellent inspection. Please thank him for me again....
