How Much Does a Roof Inspection Cost?

A roof inspection could end up saving your thousands in future repairs. So how much does a professional roof inspection cost?

Costs may vary, depending on the type of commercial roof you have, its size, the location of your building, and its existing roof materials. Property owners can expect to pay between $200-$500 for a commercial roof inspection, on average.

Some industrial roofing companies offer free inspections to meet potential customers, prove their skill, and build brand awareness.

Keystone Commercial Roofing offers customers free roof inspections and a free estimate. Through a photo app, we can snap pictures of problem areas on an industrial roof and share the images with the property owner so they may see what repairs or restorations are needed. We can then discuss options available to best suit your budget.

Before you spend too much on an entire roof replacement, consider a roof inspection. If an issue is discovered, our commercial roof coatings could be a less expensive way to solve any commercial roof issues.

Maybe you’re worried that a roof inspection might interrupt operations at your facility. This isn’t the case.

What Should I Expect During A Commercial Roof Inspection?

Our professional roof inspector will closely examine your roof to look for leaks, potential weak spots for leaks, signs of wear and tear that threaten its integrity, damage from debris, water ponding, and other obvious signs of roof degradation.

Through our photo app, we’ve identified some common commercial roof issues that we easily shared with property owners:

  • Rusted fasteners
  • Cracked, brittle caulking
  • Leaks between metal slabs
  • Holes in the roof membrane
  • Failing lap sealants
  • Compromised aluminum coatings
  • Improper slope, water pools

Our professional roof inspector will look for these and any other issues that may threaten the integrity of your building’s roof and then consult with you regarding the best solutions. At no point will your facility need to shut down during this initial inspection.

Can a Commercial Roof Coating be Applied to my Roof?

We can apply industrial roof coatings on flat roofs, low-slope roofs, industrial roofs, metal roofs, and over rubber roofs. We have years of experience revitalizing metal roofing, EPDM, rubber, or PVC roofs with innovative materials from Conklin.

Many customers also prefer our spray foam polyurethane (SPF) roof systems for several reasons, including leak-proofing and slope remediation.

As Conklin-preferred roofing professionals, we can install a urethane modified acrylic coating. These are flexible roof systems ideal for industrial roofs in Pennsylvania, where temperatures greatly fluctuate between seasons.

A free consultation with a roofing professional can explain in more detail how industrial coatings might be the best option for your roof maintenance plan.

When Should I Schedule a Roof Inspection?

Some property owners believe roof inspections can’t be done in the winter.

Commercial roof inspections are easily conducted outside of winter months due to winter snow accumulation, high wind, and other adverse weather conditions posing challenges. However, a roof inspection in the winter may more easily reveal water ponding (large ice patches) and, due to metal shrinking, make spaces between metal joints and seams more obvious.

The idea time to schedule a roof inspection is anytime. Keystone Commercial Roofing has a crew of professional roofers ready to help you maintain your property maintenance and ensure your building’s roof is sheltering properly.
