Are Roof Inspections Worth the Cost?

Have you ever considered having a roof inspection done but then hesitated, wondering if such a procedure is with the money? Perhaps you worry that an unscrupulous contractor may exaggerate problems in order to convince you to use their services. If so, you are not alone with your doubts.

A subscriber to Angie’s List recently asked how much does a roof inspection cost? A roof inspection is different from an evaluation, which is usually free. During a roof inspection, roofing experts will conduct a thorough examination of your roof and will usually charge up to about $200 for this service, depending on the scope of the job. 

So is this cost worth it? Angie Hicks seems to think so. In her answer she stressed that a having a roof inspection done every year or two can give you peace-of mind and help to catch potential problems while they are still minor. She adds that “it’s also helpful to get a professional estimate of how much useful life your roof might have left.”

Of course, she cautions against scam-artists and recommends that you first research any company you hire to work on your home.
