Inspection FAQs

Is the Roof Space Inspected?

We inspect as much of the roof space or void as we safely can. However, we must be guided by Workplace Health & Safety laws and good practice. So there may be situations where your inspector will not be able to safely get into the roof space.

For example: 

  • insulation covering roof framing may obstruct visibility need for safe foot placement
  • fragile or damaged ceiling joists or roof trusses may be unable to support the inspector
  • a low pitch roof may prevent access
  • there may be insufficient crawl space
  • electrical hazards may be present 

Should your inspector not be able to get into the roof void they can often partially inspect it from the manhole. The method and limitations of roof inspection will be clearly communicated to you in your report.

We understand you’re concerned about the state of the property’s roof void and will make best endeavours to safely inspect it. If access is restricted, your inspector can also identify some roof problems from the exterior. 

In some cases, where your inspector has sufficient concerns about the conditions in the roof void, he may recommend a further inspection once insulation has been removed. Rest assured, this is not done as a matter of course due to the significant additional cost involved.

If you have any concerns about this aspect of your inspection please discuss it with us.
