Through our years of experience, over 80% of rooftops sold have damage or leaks which cost the new buyer large sums, when they could have been prevented through a roof inspection. We can confidently perform inspections because of our patent-pending inspection process that is the most advanced in the industry, as well as the Inspector and Contractor Roof Inspection Training that is required to become an NRCIA member.


The NRCIA maximizes roof life by using its patent pending inspection process to inspect the roof. Our roof inspectors and contractors search for both necessary roof repair work and for conditions which might cause a roof leak in the future.

Following the NRCIA roof inspection protocols, a trained specialist starts the roof inspection by examining the interior walls, ceilings, and attic to see if there is any visual evidence of a roof leak. Any evidence gives the roof inspector a very good idea of what to examine most closely during the actual inspection of the roof.

Next the inspector or contractor examines the perimeter of the building looking for further evidence of leaks or damage. That includes looking for water stains on the outside of the building and looking for dry-rot and damage on the eaves and rafters.

After the interior and perimeter observations are complete, the inspector or contractor moves to the roof itself and performs a visual (non-destructive) examination. Each type of roof has its own common critical areas and the specialist is trained to pay special attention to these potential trouble spots.

During the entire roof inspection process the inspector takes photos of any evidence of current or future roof leaks. Once all photos are taken and the inspection is complete, the inspector assembles the written inspection report including the photos along with an explanation of findings, their implications and recommended repairs. Only our proprietary Inspection PLUS® roof inspection software can generate a written roof inspection report that includes digital photographs, detailed notes and a estimate of repair costs. All of our roof inspections include the detail and professional opinion (typically missing from home inspection reports) that is needed by mortgage lenders, homeowners insurance adjusters and roof riders on home warranty insurance policies.

Beyond giving the customer an idea of what it will cost to repair the roof, estimated repair costs can help in home sale negotiations.


For roof assessments that are specific or technical in nature, you will need a Forensic ROOF® Inspection. This is a comprehensive, customized roof inspection concerning; such as, but not limited to, asbestos testing of roofing materials, mold presence, code compliance, manufacturer’s installation, specification compliance, workmanship evaluation, inspection of walking decks, water testing, determination of roof slope, ponding and drainage, and structural engineering analysis. Independent experts are trained in their specific areas of expertise and each Forensic ROOF® Inspection is priced according to the services requested and tests required.
