Question DetailsAsked on 12/26/2013

Do roofing company inspect roofs in the winter?

We are having a very hard time finding a roofer to inspect a roof on a house that we are attempting to purchase due to the snow. We also would like someone to look at the siding. We would need someone to do the inspection by December 30th. Is anyone available?

You may have to pay for this service since you do not own this home but if the snow melts most roofers will work in the winter even if it is just doing estimates for work when the weather breaks. There is not much of a chance of doing aproper inspection if the roof is covered in snow so if you can have a change in weather that melts the snow in the next 4 days it may be possible. Many roofers also do siding so they might be able to inspect that also. At worst you could possibly get a roofer to give you a guesstimate as to what a new roof would cost even if the roof is snow covered.

Impossible to inspect the exterior surfaces in snow.

You can tell a whole lot from an attic inspection though.

Is that an option?
