Does a Home Inspector get on a roof? That is a question that many people ask. In fact, Google that and you will see many, many different opinions. So what is the answer? Well, it depends on the individual home inspector. For one, I get on the roof when ever it is safe, and any good home inspector would. There are obvious reasons not to get on the roof, such as rain, if the roof is damaged, or if the shingles are bad enough that they shouldn’t be walked on.
Ultimately though, home inspectors come in all shapes and sizes, and some go on roofs and some don’t. It is a very important (and very expensive) component, and in my opinion it should be closely examined. Before hiring a home inspector, ask this important question: “Do YOU get on the roof?"
