Roof Structures & Attics

The roof structure is the top layer of your home and includes the shingles, rafters, eaves, soffits and flashing. Roofs may be gabled or flat. The attic is the finished or unfinished space between your top living floor and the rafters that support the roof systems above. The attics are inspected by Rio Bravo after the exterior roof inspection to see if what appeared “deficient” on the roof, has actually caused any sort of damage to intrude into the attic. The attic inspection is a very important part considering it can uncover all sorts of potential issues. Also commonly found in the attic are portions of the HVAC system. These systems include the air handler, refrigerant lines as well as other components. There’s lot to inspect in the attic and this portion should never be over looked.
