Roof Reporting

Roof reporting refers to the process of evaluating and reporting on any structural issues with the roof of a property, and much like the roof itself, it’s not something to be taken lightly. Accurate reporting requires extensive experience and expertise about Australian standards and manufacturers’ specifications and a keen eye, capable of spotting potential problems before they arise.

This is particularly important if you’re living in an older property because, as a general rule, even the hardiest materials have a maximum roof-life of about fifty years.

Got questions about the roof reporting process (or never heard of it before)? Then you’ve landed in the right place – because we’ve got answers.

What is a roof report?

A roof report is a document detailing any existing or potential structural problems with your roof. These reports are typically compiled by roofing specialists with extensive experience in and knowledge of the roofing industry. Many corporate business and property owners opt to have these inspections and reports completed on an annual basis so as to protect their assets.

Why do I need a roof report?

There are several reasons why you may need to commission a roof report and inspection. Firstly, if you are experiencing unexpected issues such as leaking from the roof, a report will diagnose any existing issues and help you work out what to do next. Secondly, if you are selling your property (or considering doing so in the near future), a roof report will let prospective buyers know whether your roof is in good condition and compliant with building standards and requirements. Finally, if your property is new, a roof report will ensure that the construction process is completed correctly with the correct design and materials.

What is included in a roof report and inspection?

Most roof reports include a visual inspection with images of affected areas and a set of recommendations for fixing any issues. After the inspection, the assessor will provide you with a written summary of any potential issues with images, and depending on the extent of any damages, may offer a solution on the spot.

How much should a roof inspection cost?

The cost of a roof report and inspection varies depending on the size of the roof, typically ranging from $200 to $400 dollars. This amount accounts for the time required for the inspection as well as the challenges involved in accessing and assessing the roof and is relatively insignificant compared to the potential long-term cost of roof damages. It’s worth noting that this amount may increase if the assessor finds serious structural problems that require on-the-spot repairs.

How often should I have my roof inspected?

Generally, it’s best to have your roof inspected at least once every three to five years, although we recommend more regular inspections. This way, you’ll give yourself the best chance of catching potential roofing issues before they become real dangers or health hazards.
