When to Schedule Roofing Inspections
In Vancouver, BC, it’s recommended to schedule roofing inspections at the following times:
- Spring Inspection: After the winter season, it’s essential to check for any damage caused by snow, ice, or heavy rainfall.
- Fall Inspection: Before the rainy season, a fall inspection can help identify any issues that need to be addressed before the weather worsens.
- After Severe Weather Events: If your area experiences severe weather events like storms or heavy winds, it’s a good idea to have your roof inspected afterward to assess any potential damage.
- Before Selling or Buying a Property: If you’re buying or selling a property, a roofing inspection can reveal any hidden problems and provide confidence in the property’s condition.

What to Expect During a Roofing Inspection
Professional roofing inspections involve a comprehensive assessment of your entire roofing system. Here’s what you can expect:
- Exterior Inspection: The roofing contractor will examine the exterior of your roof, looking for issues such as missing or damaged shingles, cracked flashing, and signs of wear.
- Interior Inspection: In some cases, an interior inspection may be necessary to assess the roof from the inside. This can reveal issues like water stains, mold, or other signs of leakage.
- Gutter Inspection: Gutters and downspouts will be checked for blockages or damage that could affect water drainage.
- Attic Inspection: If accessible, the attic space will be inspected for proper ventilation, insulation, and signs of leaks.
Residential and Commercial Roofing FAQ
From inspection to installation, we answer your most asked questions about roofing. Don’t see your question below? Contact us.
How long does a roof installation typically take?
A roof installation can take anywhere between 3 days to a couple of weeks. The timeframe will depend on the size of the roof, removal of the old roof (if applicable), roofing materials, and weather. We’ll send our roofing contractor for an inspection for a more accurate estimate based on your residential or commercial roofing project.
What are the signs that indicate I need a new roof?
Look out for these telltale signs on your roof such as:
- Missing, curling, or damaged shingles
- Old and worn out
- Overgrowth of moss
- Water leaks or damage
- Excessive granule loss
- Sagging or droopy areas
- Neighbors are getting replacements
If you notice any of these issues, it’s recommended to consult a professional roofer for an inspection.
How often should I have my roof inspected?
Twice a year. It’s generally recommended to have a roof inspection in the spring or fall when the weather is typically more favourable. Regular inspections help identify and address potential issues before they escalate into costly problems. Don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule your roof inspection and maintenance service.
Can I install a new roof over the existing one?
Yes, it’s possible to put a new roof over an old one. Keep in mind, there are specific conditions that need to be met where a roof over is possible. The existing roof must be in good shape and only suitable for asphalt shingles to ensure a successful overlay. Additionally, this approach can add excess weight and potentially compromise the integrity of the roofing system.
We recommend consulting a roofing professional to determine the best course of action for your residential or commercial roofing project.
How long can I expect my roof to last?
The life expectancy of a roof depends on the type of roof material installed. Here are the average lifespans of common roof materials:
- Asphalt shingles: 15 to 20 years
- Wood shingles: 25 to 30 years
- Metal roof: 20 to 50 years
- Slate tiles: 50+ years
- Concrete or clay tiles: 50+ years
Other factors that determine the lifespan of a roof include the type and quality of materials, underlayment, weather exposure, regular maintenance and workmanship of the installation. Contact our team for guidance on the best roof types and materials for your next residential or commercial project.
