Do you inspect roofs?

Bridge home inspectiosn gets asked this question all the time, and the answer is yes. The Standards of Practice do not require that the inspector physically walk a roof. “The inspector shall inspect from ground level or the eaves” is the way it is stated. Also, the standards note that “the inspector is not required to walk on any roof surface.” Other associations, such as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) and NAHI (National Association of Home Inspectors), have essentially the same standard. But we walk a roof whenever we can. If a roof is too steep, wet, has loose granules or shingles, or is a material like clay tile that is easily damaged by walking on it, we examine the roof from a ladder. but being able to get on the roof, touch and examine it close-up, always provides valuable insights for an inspector and this is why we inspect physically inspect roofs.
