Residential Roof Inspection


We Help Homeowners Get A New Roof and Repair Damage from Roof Leaks

When was the last time you thought about your roof? Do you even know the last time you scheduled a residential roof inspection? You might not think about it much until there’s a significant problem on your hands.

Think about your roof, and then think again. It is time for a residential inspection. Without regular inspections of roofs in good condition, they can start showing signs that something’s wrong before you even notice it with leaks or cracks across the entire structure. This could lead to more expensive repairs down the road if not caught early on by having our team at Wells Roofing and  Remodeling take care of these routine checks for you. You can have a  peace of mind knowing everything under your roof is healthy as ever.

What Does a Roof Inspection Consist Of?

When you schedule a roof inspection with Wells Roofing and Remodeling, our dedicated team can get on your rooftop and work their way around the outside of the home to find any potential issues that could be affecting your current or future experience. We can provide a thorough inspection and report for you from shingle damage to moisture or mold issues. A visual inspection of your roof from the ground is a massive part of what we do. We have plenty of experience spotting any signs of damage, water infiltration, or even missing shingles.

Types of Roofs That Should Have Annual Inspections

Metal Roofs

The metal used in most metal roofs can last up to 30+ years if the proper annual maintenance is performed. If metal roofs are not maintained properly, some of the panels will rust because of wet leaves sitting on them, corrosion, dirt, and grime.  Wells Roofing and Remodeling specializes in restoring damaged sections of metal roofs. When you feel your roof starting to degrade, it’s always best to get an inspection right away.

Shingle Roofs

The average shingle roof will usually only last 20 years. This is due to regular wear and tear and water and sun damage. If you live in a place with lots of severe weather, it’s essential to get your roof regularly inspected for any damage that could lead to leaks or worse.

Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are relatively easy to maintain and can last upwards of 25 years if cared for properly. However, one thing to watch out for with flat roofs is ponding water, which can cause the roofing material to break down prematurely. If you notice any standing water on your roof, be sure to get it inspected right away.

Benefits of a Roof Inspection

Some are concerned that their roof is not leaking, but an inspection can show any problems with the drainage system, which could cause damage to the rest of the house. When inspecting a roof, we check some specific areas for potential damage. The ridges are critical areas to watch out for during a roof inspection. Make sure they are clean and free of debris. Another place to check is the gutters for clogs. They should be clean and flowing freely. Another area to inspect is the flashing area to inspect around chimneys, skylights, dormers, etc. These are often overlooked but very important.

Don’t Wait to Repair

If any damage is found, it is essential to repair it as soon as possible to avoid further damage. Ignoring minor repairs can lead to much bigger and more expensive problems down the road. Wells Roofing and Remodeling will identify any potential problems and suggest solutions. Having a regular inspection done on your roof can help you avoid costly repairs in the future.

Avoid Further Damage

It’s important to remember that a roof inspection is not just for identifying leaks. Many other potential problems can occur with a roof that an inspection can catch. By having a regular inspection, you can help avoid costly repairs down the road.

Expensive Repairs

The cost of repairing a poorly maintained roof can be much more expensive than maintaining it regularly. It’s important to find problems before they become too severe and require extensive work to fix, which can end up costing you more money in the long run.

Safety First

In addition to avoiding costly repairs, it’s essential to keep your family safe by having a safe roof. A damaged roof can lead to water damage inside your home, as well as potential injuries from falling debris.

Regular Roof Inspections

Regular inspections are the best way to ensure that your roof is in good condition and will protect your home and family for years to come. Contact Wells Roofing and Remodeling at 901-482-2546 today for more information on getting your roof inspected. Regular roof inspections are essential to identifying problems before they become severe and require expensive repairs.

A good roof inspection should include inspecting:

  • Shingles surface
  • Valley’s, ridges, chimneys, and wall flashing
  • Pipes
  • Vents, power vents, and turbines
  • Fasteners where the metal lapse
  • Wet insulation

The inspector should also check the condition of the roof decking and the insulation. If there are any signs of damage or wear, our inspector will recommend repairs.

How Often Should You Get Your Roof Inspected?

The frequency of roof inspections depends on the condition of your roof, the type of materials used, and the weather conditions in your area. A good rule of thumb is to have your roof inspected at least once a year.

Some common problems that can be detected with a roof inspection include:

  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Debris on the roof
  • Warped or buckled roof decking
  • Leaking roofs
  • Mold or mildew
  • Screws loose from the metal
  • Metals lapse loosen

Maintenance is essential to take preventative measures against potential problems with your roof. If you suspect any issues or want an expert opinion on your roof, contact Wells Roofing and Remodeling today at 901-482-2546. We will walk you through all of your options and tell you what we recommend for keeping your home safe throughout the winter months.

While most people think of a roof inspection as something you only do when buying or selling a home, it’s a good idea to have your roof inspected annually. By catching minor problems before they turn into big ones, you can save yourself a lot of money and hassle.

If you have any concerns about your roof, be sure to contact Wells Roofing and Remodeling at 901-482-2546 for an inspection. A small problem can quickly become a big one if left unchecked.

When Is The Best Time For A Roof Inspection?

Many people wait until their roofs begin leaking before making an appointment for a roof inspection. However, this is often too late. A good time to inspect is in the spring, when mild weather and rain are less frequent. This will give you plenty of time to address any discovered problems before the following winter.

What Happens During A Roof Inspection?

Our roof inspector will examine your roof for signs of wear and damage, such as missing or broken shingles, water stains, and moss or algae growth. We will also check the flashing and venting to ensure that they are correctly installed and in good condition. If any repairs are needed, our inspector will provide a written estimate detailing the cost of the repairs and how long we should take to complete them.

Why is it Important to Get a Roof Inspection?

It is essential to get a roof inspection because a roof is a protective barrier for all your belongings. By having an inspection done before any significant problems occur, you can ensure no potential hazards to your health and safety. In addition, getting a second opinion from a professional inspector before more considerable expenses are made can save you money. If repairs or replacements are not needed now, then those funds can be used somewhere else.

The purpose of a roof inspection is to examine the general condition of the roof and its underlying components. To identify defects or deficiencies in material or workmanship that may have resulted from normal wear and tear or damage due to natural disasters such as windstorms, hailstorms, and fungal growth due to leaks. Some water damage and roof failure may be covered by your homeowners insurance and could save you thousands of dollars or more. If you think you may qualify for coverage, contact your insurance company to find out for sure.

Need a Residential Roof?

Wells Roofing and Remodeling are shingle roof experts. We have installed over 1,000 shingle roofs, and our experience with them has given us a level of expertise you won’t find anywhere else. The large majority of residential homes have shingle roofs, which means there is plenty that needs roofs.

If we decide that your shingle roof needs to be replaced, we will file a claim with your insurance provider. We also have great financing programs with Synchrony and Mosaic Financing. Any shingle roof we do replace has a 30-year warranty on it. 

Residential Flat Roof Inspections

Plenty of flat roofs need work these days, and Wells Roofing and Remodeling has a team ready to handle them. We can install a TPO membrane to restore the roof without having to remove the existing roof. Another option is a silicone coating that can extend a flat roof’s lifespan and help restore it.

Any flat roofs that we restore will receive a 20-year warranty.

Residential Metal Roof Inspections

Yes, we even work on metal roofs! We have multiple methods for metal roofs. One of these is a metal retrofit that we apply new metals on top of your existing structure. If we feel this is insufficient, we can always take the entire roof off and replace it. We can also apply it with a silicone coating to extend the life of the metal roof.

The idea of a metal roof might put you off, but fear not! Our metal roofs typically last 25 to 30 years. With protection like this, your roof could be serviceable for years to come.

Need A Church or Commercial Roof?

We don’t only work on residential roofs. Wells Roofing and Remodeling also works on commercial roofing projects for small businesses as well as churches. Our experience and expertise in replacing multiple kinds of roofs make us adaptable. There isn’t a single kind of roof that we haven’t worked on before. 

TPO Membrane

Some roofs still use the old PVC method of roofing, but TPO membrane roofing has become far more common as time has gone on. A TPO membrane roof utilizes a different, more economically friendly roofing structure. This roof style is typically more energy-efficient, which is incredibly useful for those hot summer months.

Silicone Coating

Our silicone coating is an option for roof restoration that can extend flat or metal roofs’ lifespan. Utilizing silicone coating is a more inexpensive option for those who don’t want to replace a roof completely. The coating acts as a sealing agent and can save thousands of dollars since the roof doesn’t have to be ripped out.

Pastor Melvin Jones wearing formals

Mr. Wells, did an outstanding job for us. He put a new shingle roof on our church building. He also did some work on the floors. He was very timely, courteous, professional and very attentive to our needs. Whenever we called him he was there. Whatever question we had he answered. We were highly pleased with all aspects of his work. I give a 199% vote of confidence for Mr. Wells and his company.

Paul Collins testimonial on Wells Roofing and Remodeling

I received a brochure in the mail from Wells Roofing Company. I didn’t really need a roof but Mr. Wells came out to inspect it for us. We had been in the building over 20 years and the roof was showing signs of wear. We did not have any leaks, but wanted to be proactive before incurring any problems. Mr. Wells, replaced our roof without any down time to our worship services or Bible study. They were professional and went above and beyond our expectations. I would recommend him because of his professionalism. He’s on time and informs you about every detail.

Elder Paul Collins, New Covenant Holiness Church, Memphis, TN

We had a problem with our roof resulting from a storm which damaged and caused a part of our roof to come off. Mr. Wells had sent a flyer and we called Mr. Earnest Wells of Wells Roofing and Remodeling. Mr. Wells sent it to an insurance adjustor who surveyed the roof along with a representative from Wells Remodeling. Once the insurance company approved it, we hired Mr. Wells. Everything was done professionally, and the work area was always kept clean and neat. After a year, Mr. Wells yet remains in touch with us to ensure that everything is okay. He is loyal, honest, very passionate and concerned about his clients. Call him for your roofing and remodeling needs.

Pastor Sherman L Helton Sr talks about Wells roofing and remodeling

We built a life center about 17 years ago, and began to incur problems with the metal roof. We began to have leaks and problems with screws coming out. We wanted a metal roofing specialist because not all roofing companies work with metal roofs. Mr. Wells came out and brought metal roofing specialists with him. Our committee chose Mr. Wells after hearing his presentation and he did a superb job. We are “tickled pink” as a result of his work. I highly recommend him for all your roofing needs. Contact him today.

I received a brochure in the mail, called him and he took control. Mr. wells does things legally, promptly and most efficiently. I would refer Mr. Wells to anyone who has a need. The roof was leaking. Now we’re in good shape. Thanks to Mr. Wells.
