As professionals, it’s rare. Now, if the roof deck, for example, is rotted under the shingles and needs repair, we can usually tell when doing the roofing estimate. However, should surprises come up, we only charge for the materials!
No problem, we are happy to do cost effective roof repairs, we charge a $159 Repair Inspection Service fee. The reason for this; is that we want to avoid "commission" bias and rushing through the inspection. In the context of roofing we say;
"When one thing is wrong, everything's wrong!"
Meaning if you are having a problem over here, it is usually caused by installer error. If they installed this part wrong, it is just a matter of time before another part installed fails. If it is weather-related, such as a shingle blow off, then it might not be only the shingle that blew off that you should be concerned about. It's the area around it. There might be other shingles that are loose, damaged, but still attached. Also, there could be damages from the debris hitting other parts of your roof.
For these reasons and more, we feel it is best to do a proper inspection and provide you with documentation through pictures and video so that you can be fully informed and get a comprehensive solution. This means the use of tools and paying for our inspector's time and patience.
The old way is to send a "Salesman" to your house to try and find a way to extract money from the opportunity as a way to justify his time spent. This is not - in our opinion - the best way to align our interests with yours.
We hope you’ll call us when you’re ready to complete the repairs; which is why in some cases we discount the inspection fee from the actual repair service if you allow us to do the work.
