Roof Inspection & Maintenance in Cincinnati

Your roof protects against water, wind, and debris and helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. It’s also the most vulnerable part of your home to the elements. Customers throughout the Cincinnati area can rely on Wingate Heating, Air, Plumbing & Roofing to provide comprehensive roof inspections. Our technicians are trained to look for common problems and determine if any repairs are needed. By scheduling a residential or commercial roof inspection, you can protect your property, avoid costly damage, and extend the lifespan of your roof.

How Do I Know I Need a Roof Inspection?

You might schedule a professional roof inspection if you plan to buy a home. It’s important to assess the full condition of any property you invest in. Or, you may consider inspecting your roof if:

  • Your Attic Is Leaking: Stains or mold can indicate your attic is exposed to outside air due to a damaged roof.
  • Paint on the Roofline Is Peeling: Peeling paint is a sign humidity is building up in underlying materials.
  • Damaged/Missing Shingles: If shingles are old, worn, or missing, your roof may have structural integrity issues.
  • Damaged Shingle Nails: If the nails on the shingles pop up, leaks can occur. Rusted nails or stains around them can also indicate a problem. 
  • Problems with Interior Drywall: Cracked or discolored drywall can be a sign of a leaking roof.
  • Damaged/Missing Flashing: If roof flashing is rusted, worn, or missing, your roof may not be watertight.
  • After a Big Storm: Heavy rain, hail, snow, ice, and high winds can cause roof damage, even if it’s not immediately obvious.

What Does a Roof Inspection Include?

Wingate specializes in a range of roof services, including comprehensive roof inspections. Our trained experts thoroughly assess your roof using advanced tools and techniques. These let us find subtle signs of damage or wear and tear. During the process, we’ll check shingles, flashing, gutters, fascia, cladding, soffits, and for evidence of damaged trusses, joists, or wall studs.

The primary concerns we look for include leaks, damage to roofing materials, and structural issues. If necessary, we’ll complete any necessary repairs, whether it requires:

  • Replacing missing or damaged shingles
  • Replacing damaged, loose, or missing tiles
  • Repairing cracked or rusty flashing
  • Sealing and repairing roof leaks
  • Fixing any damage to the roof fascia
  • Resolving roof ventilation issues
  • Replacing damaged rubber boots around vents
  • Draining standing water
  • Cleaning/repairing gutters
  • Checking for moss, lichen, and other signs of decay

What Are the Benefits of a Roof Inspection?

Early detection is one of the greatest benefits of a roof inspection. Missing shingles or minor water damage can escalate to water penetration, which can cause damage to interior walls and supporting elements. Water can also lead to mold that diminishes indoor air quality and can create health hazards. Replacing a roof can cost you over $12,000, but an inspection can help find issues to fix before you spend that much.

Air leakage or holes in the roof can reduce indoor comfort. These issues can cause cold air to get in or escape from your home, leaving it too chilly or warm. Moisture and humidity problems can also result. Your HVAC system will need to work harder to compensate. This can lead to energy efficiency issues that increase your electric bills. Therefore, roof inspections can save you on many fronts, from fewer repairs to lower bills to avoiding premature roof replacement.


What Time of Year Should I Schedule a Roof Inspection?

The spring and fall months are the best times to have your roof inspected. An inspection can determine if your roof will hold up in harsh conditions and allows a contractor to make small repairs to protect your home.

What Is the Cost of a Roof Inspection?

According to Forbes, a roof inspection in the U.S. averages $220.1 But the actual cost varies depending on the type of inspection, the technologies used, the size of your roof, and its slope and accessibility.

How Long Does a Roof Last?

The life expectancy of a roof depends on the type of material, its quality, and its durability.  A tar and gravel roof can last 10 to 20 years, while asphalt shingles last 15 to 20 years. A highly durable, well-maintained metal, composite shingle, or concrete, slate, or clay tile roof can last 50+ years.

We’ve Pulled Away From the Competition

Wingate Mechanical has never failed me. They are my first call every time I have an issue. The start of February 2024, cold weather, our furnace quit working around 9pm at night. We have a family of six including young children. A phone call was made, and Wingate had a technician out at our house within an hour. Ty H. arrived and diagnosed the problem and wow our furnace was no good. He made a couple calls and was able to get Project Manager Aaron Faughn out to my house the next day to discuss options. Aaron listened to our needs and was knowledgeable and explained the process clearly. He had an install team at the house the next day to get new furnace installed and working so we had heat. Seth N. and Justin E. did a fantastic job installing the furnace and getting our heat back working. They explained everything very well. I am always very pleased with Wingate Mechanical, and they are always my first call!!!

Representative Aaron Faughn stopped by my house to do an assessment on the water heater. We had noticed several problematic areas within the space of the heater and most notably water leaking from underneath which showed the end of lifespan for this device . Upon completion of inspection he educated myself on the hazards of not changing out the water heater in a timely manner as well as the monetary costs that could be incurred. We agreed to change it out and have another Wingate technician install the new device. The tech was very professional during the entire install process and educated me as well as to what some of the items on the water heater had written on it. I am very pleased in the services I received from Wingate. Highly recommend for anyone that needs assistant on what they offer within the home realm.

The team was incredibly nice and friendly. I appreciate that they are so timely and would call/text ahead of time to let you know exactly who and when they are coming. I am clueless on HVACs but the team would patiently explain everything they could to me and I greatly appreciated it. Robby explained in great detail all the parts of the furnace and worked hard to diagnose the issue/fix it. Brett gave me a variety of options for the replacement of my HVAC system and I like how thorough he was in trying to address my needs and lifestyle. The team was also incredibly quick and replaced my 30 year old furnace and AC for me all in a day. Very professional, hardworking and easy to work with. I am really happy with my experience.I worked with Robby, Brett, Justin & Aaron

Wonderful experience with Wingate and Aaron Faughn, one of their project managers. While completing a bathroom reno for a customer, we were stalled by the fact we needed a multi shutoff valve replacement. Aaron responded immediately and had a tech out the same day; the work was completed two days later putting us right back on schedule. In addition, from one small business to another, all parties handled themselves expertly, and the repair was extremely cost effective. Will be using Wingate in the future and recommending them to friends!

Following a storm that impacted neighbors we thought it best to have our roof inspected and contacted Wingate. Matt Alexander came to our home and did find damage. We contacted our insurance company who confirmed the damage that Matt found. Matt was very helpful throughout the entire process with the insurance company. Once we had the OK from the insurance company Matt helped us through the process of selecting materials and assisted with interaction of the scheduling through Wingate. Emily from Wingate along with Matt are were great communicators. Both are responsive to our calls and give us answers to questions. On the day prior to the scheduled install, Matt set up protective netting around the house. On the day of install additional ground covering around the house was installed by the crew. Matt was on-site throughout the day during the install and interacted with the crew. After install, prior to the crew leaving, Matt reviewed the project, removed the protective netting he installed and the hard working install crew cleaned up the yard and removed their ground covering. The next day, Matt came back to pick up some left over materials, checked out the install from the ground and the roof top. Emily sent us the warranty information and took care of filing the paperwork with our insurance company. Our thanks to everyone involved.

Wingate was incredible to work with. Replaced the entire roof on our house and detached garage due to wind damage. Excellent communication from start to finish. Did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. Followed up after the work was completed to make sure all was well. Would not hesitate to refer Wingate to anyone!

Robbie came out and got my system working amazingly. He explained everything to me in a way that I could understand, he offered maintenance services (without being pushy) and let me decide on which plan worked best for me. Excellent experience; highly recommend.
