Do you have obvious signs of roof damage like missing shingles? Does your home’s roof leak during a rain or snow storm? Other signs that may indicate a problem are: curling shingles, damaged flashing, granule loss in individual shingles, or moss and algae growth on your roof.
Are you concerned because your roof is getting older and you don’t want to wait until you have an emergency? If your roof is greater than 20 years old, it often makes sense to have a roof inspection.
Taking care of a roofing problem today can literally save you thousands of dollars in repair work later on. We will come out to your home, inspect your home’s roofing system.
If you see any of the warning signs above you may have a potential problem. But inspecting your roof from the inside is also very important. The following is a checklist of problem signs you can look for inside your home, as well.
Indoor Roof Inspection Checklist
- Sagging decking between the rafters. If the decking is sagging or deteriorating, the decking will also require replacement when a new roof is installed.
- Signs of leaking in the attic (dark spots in the wood, especially around vents, chimneys, and other holes to the roof).
- Signs of water damage or leaking (usually in the form of water stains, or sagging ceilings) – this could be due to an active leak in the roof or to condensation caused by poor roof ventilation.
If you observe any of the signs listed above, you may need a new roof. Depending on the degree of the problem, you can decide what is best for you and your home. Often the cost of replacing a roof is less than dealing with the damage an old roof can cause to your home.

Harvey is a great outfit, from the salespeople, project planners to the carpenters. The carpenter (Ben) assigned to lead the project did a fantastic job and was nothing short of a great ambassador for their company. Harvey had done our roof a few years earlier and I trusted their workmanship and professionalism. They did what they said they would do and they did it when they said they would do it.
“All companies should be as reliable and efficient as yours. We called on you at a time when a previous contractor not only failed to complete a roofing job after five weeks but damaged the exterior of our home. Now, our only regret is that we didn’t know about you beforehand.”
“I wanted to let you know how well the work was conducted in the installation of my new roof.”
“The roof looks great and we have every confidence in it remaining so. We would like to compliment you on your superb staff, as well.”
“They were very open and honest with us. They would tell us when we didn’t need things. They actually ended up saving us 4 thousand dollars. They do a very good job at being honest with their customers and I was very pleased with that. I recommended them to a friend and they’re getting their roof done next week.”
“I can’t thank you enough for the job you’ve done. It was wonderful to watch such a professional handle all the many steps and people. I am completely satisfied and would definitely use Harvey Remodeling again. I will actually miss having you around and exchanging notes. My very best to you.”
“On behalf of The First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury, the Board of Buildings and Grounds and Property Manager Bob Claflin, I would like to thank Harvey Remodeling for an outstanding job in replacing our roof. Your project team displayed utmost professionalism at all times. The representatives of Harvey Remodeling were very safety conscious, kept the work site extremely clean and the workers were most courteous.

Harvey Remodeling is truly to be commended on a job well done. We thank you once again for a most professional job.”
