Roof Inspections


The only way to have complete peace of mind about your roof is to have it professionally inspected. Whether buying or selling a house, the process is often confusing and stressful. Often, a home inspector takes a look at the roofing system and makes many recommendations and notes about it in their report. However, home inspectors are not roofing experts and often base their observations and conclusions on flawed information. The best way to know what is really going on is to have a qualified roofing expert inspect the roofing system.

That is exactly what Welte Roofing Company can do for you. We will come to the property and physically mount the roof if possible. We do not use drones or satellite imagery as part of our inspection process because the inspector needs to have hands on the roof to accurately assess the condition. After the inspection we provide a written analysis with pictures to explain our findings and a proposal for remediating any issues that are found.


Inspections are charged at a flat rate – complicated roofs or long distance travel can carry an additional charge. The inspection fee is recoverable as a credit if work is booked as a result of the inspection.


  • If you are buying a house, contact us to get an idea of what to ask the seller for in negotiations.
  • Use Welte Roofing to argue something that you feel the home inspector missed.
  • Have peace of mind that the house you’re moving into is going to keep you dry.


  • Providing your buyers with a specialized roof inspection offers them assurance that you want to offer a house in great condition.
  • Use Welte Roofing to argue against claims the home inspector said were necessary but may not be.
  • Use our inspection in negotiations with your buyer.
