A Roofing System Checklist For You

Below is a checklist/ form that could be of use for some you that are looking for roofing services in utica or it’s surrounding areas.  I will admit, I didn’t create this checklist, it was first found at

I feel that it can be useful for anyone looking to maintain their roof and extend it’s longevity.

In addition, there are a few tips that are useful on the website:

When cleaning your gutters or inspecting your roof system, remember important ladder safety tips: 

  • Make sure the ladder is on solid, level ground.


  • Secure the ladder at the top to prevent it from slipping.


  • Inspect the ladder, rungs and rails for damage.


  • Extend the ladder at least 3 feet beyond the gutter, and angle it 1 foot back from the house for every 4 feet in eave height.


  • Always use both hands when climbing the ladder.

Once on the ladder, you should look for: 

  • Shingles that are buckling, curling or blistering; this indicates the end of the shingles’ life expectancy.


  • Loose material or wear around chimneys, pipes and other penetrations.


  • Excessive amounts of shingle granules in your gutters; granules give shingles added weight and protect them from ultraviolet rays.
