When thinking of a malfunctional roof, what comes to mind? Many people think that a faulty roof is one that is experiencing a lot of leaks. Although a scenario like this definitely deserves attention, it would be a mistake to think that a roof is in trouble only when it’s necessary to spread buckets to catch the leaks.
In many cases, roofs can be full of internal faults, with defective insulation or clogged vents. The only way to know for sure that something is wrong is by scheduling an examination with New Heights Roofing before the problems get worse. Our professional roof inspections in Post Falls can detect any type of hidden trouble.

The term “inspection” may sound unpleasant, but when it comes to roofs, this service can only offer positives. A proactive examination allows us to check that a roof is holding strong and make prompt interventions if it is structurally unsound. The most important thing of course is that this will keep families and individuals safe from harm. Another benefit, however, is that it keeps costs down since it reduces the need for pricy, unexpected replacements. An inspection also helps increase the property value if residents are looking to sell.
Signs That a Roof Inspection Is Necessary
Even though it is impossible to predict exactly when to schedule a roof inspection, there are crucial signs that indicate it is time to have the roof checked out. By being on the lookout, residents can reach out to a reliable roofing specialist before the next rainstorm or bout of hail arrives.
The clear warning signs that a roof requires an expert inspection include:
- The roof is showing visible signs of leaks
- Mildew, algae, moss, lichen, or mold have been growing between the tiles or under the shingles
- Parts of the roof seem to be sagging
- Noticeable “bald” patches, or areas without shingles, have emerged on the roof
- Lots of tiny granules from the shingles are clogging up the gutter
- Tiles, shingles, or metal sheaths display signs of cracks or are torn off completely
- The roof looks saggy in some areas, particularly the middle
- Sunlight is shining through holes in the roof
- Post Falls

The most important reason for scheduling a roof inspection is to make sure that it is structurally sound, so experts will always test to see that the roof is still standing strong. After this, they will work step by step to check that the exterior materials are holding up to inclement weather conditions. They will also closely examine the interior of the roof to see if the sealing is still watertight and if the attic is fitted with proper ventilation. Our professionals at New Heights Roofing carry out a step-by-step process, answering any questions of clients along the way.
