We offer very thorough and detailed roof inspections
Having your roof inspected annually or at the very least bi-annually is generally a good idea. Even moreso if the home or building you own is occupied by tenants, who may or may not be as attentive to your property as you (or us) would be. Roofing problems usually arise from poor installations, storm damage, or just deterioration of the roofing materials. Spotting these issues before they can cause significant damage to your home is key.
Brad's Construction offers complete roof inspection services for homeowners within our Dodge County and Winnebago County Wisconsin service areas. Our roofing experts can find out exactly what is wrong with your roofing system.
What Are We Looking For In A Roof Inspection?
There are a variety of things we're looking at when we inspect your roof. We aim to provide the most thorough inspections, often catching items other roofers might miss.
#1. Hail Damage: We carefully examine your roof for any signs of damage caused by hailstorms. This could include cracked or broken shingles, dents on metal roofing, or any other signs of impact that could compromise the integrity of your roof.
#2. Loss of Roofing Granules: A vital aspect of our inspection is checking for loss of roofing granules. These granules are essential for protecting your roof against the sun's damaging UV rays. Loss of granules can accelerate the aging process of your roof and may be an indication of nearing the end of its lifespan.
#3. Wind and Storm Damage: High winds and severe storms can wreak havoc on your roof. We thoroughly check for loose or missing shingles, damaged seals, and any other signs of wind or storm damage that may lead to leaks or other issues in the future.
#4. Poor Flashing Installations: The flashing is crucial as it helps to prevent water intrusion at joints or edges. We examine the quality of the flashing installation, ensuring it is adequately sealed and positioned correctly around chimneys, skylights, and other roof penetrations or where the roof meets a wall.
#5. Inadequate Roof Venting: A well-vented roof is vital for maintaining the longevity of your roof and preventing issues like mold growth or wood rot. We assess the quality and effectiveness of your roof's ventilation system to ensure it's promoting sufficient airflow.
#6. Additional Factors: Besides these primary issues, we're on the lookout for other potential problems, such as the structural integrity of the roof deck, potential signs of water damage, and the condition of the gutter system. We're committed to providing a comprehensive evaluation of your roof's overall health and stability.
We have many years of experience as local roofing contractors specializing in several different types of roofing materials and complex roofing projects. In short, we know exactly what to look for in roof to help the homeowner avoid expensive repairs or even roofing replacements further down the road.
Drone Roofing Inspections
Climbing up on roofs all day can be dangerous work, especially if the roof is extremely steep (high pitched). Thankfully we have a certified drone pilot on staff and using one of the latest aerial photography drones we can take detailed video footage and aerial photos of your roof without having to get out the ladder.
The use of a our drone can help us spot trouble areas and we can also take an aerial photo of your roof and import it into our estimating software to quickly produce accurate roofing estimates. Our drone is perfect for steep slope roofing systems or roofs that would otherwise be difficult or too dangerous to access with a ladder.
Roof Flashing Inspections
Part of our roofing inspections is looking at your existing roof flashing around dormers, chimneys, valleys, and other areas of your roof where two surfaces meet. Poorly installed, damaged, or even missing flashing are usually one of the most common causes for roof leaks and they are often preventable if the problem can be discovered early. Leaks caused by flashing problems can be small and may often go unnoticed for months or even years causing significant damage to your home interior. These leaks can go on for a long time before the homeowner discovers there is a problem. If you suspect your roof flashing is the cause of a roof leak we can thoroughly inspect it for you.
The ventilation within your attic is an overlook aspect of a roofing inspection. Inadequate ventilation can lead to problems with condensation build-up in your attic, it can contribute to ice dams, and other issues that are going to be expensive to repair. We can let you know during an inspection if your roof ventilation is adequate or if it would be a good idea to add more venting to your roof to help provide cheap insurance against future issues.

I hired Brad's to add on to my existing composite deck. I removed my hot tub and wanted to extend the deck to fill the area. Justin and Taylor came up with some great options to tie in the new deck portion with the older, weathered deck. They were very informative and stayed on top of communication during the entire process. Even though my project was a fairly small one, they treated it like it was the most important job. I would highly recommend consulting with Brad's if you were looking to have some work done.
We had a garage fire & they came to rescue! We decided to add to the garage instead of replacing the shed that burned & Brad's did a great job with the project. The customer service was great also, communicating with us to keep us in the loop of when inspections were needed & days they weren't able to be here. We are so glad to have a garage back before the snow really starts to fly.
When it came time to replace our roof it was a real pleasure dealing with Brad and Taylor. Communication was terrific and they were quick to respond to any questions that we had. The crew did a great job with the installation and we've received several compliments from friends and neighbors on the finished project. We recommend that you give them a call and talk about your next project.
We hired Brad's Construction to redo our roof a few months ago and we couldn't be more pleased. He was prompt in every way and our roof was done perfectly. They were able to get it done in a day, and left behind no mess in our driveway. We would recommend them to everyone, and would definitely hire them again.
They did a great job, we just had a fire and they came out to tarp the roof, before the storms hit. They went above and beyond what was asked or expected.
Very professional and detailed. Solved our leak problem. Highly recommend.
I would highly recommend Brad’s Construction. His team installed a composite deck with new railings for me. They were friendly, professional, hard working and did an awesome job. They explained all of my options, gave their recommendations and performed the work expertly. I could not be happier and will definitely hire them for future projects.
I contacted Brad's construction to replace the shingles on my house and garage. My street was being redone at the same time I was planning but they were very patient with me and answered any questions I had. They finished within 2 days of the start date and cleaned up very well. Would never know they came! I'm very impressed with my roof and would highly recommend these guys to anybody looking to get their roof done. Highly professional and competitive pricing!
We had brad’s construction install a basement egress window for us. The whole process from start to finish went awesome. Brad is super friendly, knowledgeable, and a excellent craftsman. They did an excellent job cleaning up daily and took every precaution to leaving our yard and home looking better than they arrived. Most of all the window looks absolutely terrific. I couldn’t be happier with the choice we made to have brad’s construction do this project. I would recommend to anyone!!
Brad and Taylor were professional in their quote process right through installation of our new roof. The crew arrived on time as promised, were friendly, cleaned up each day as if they were never here. Project was finished in two days for a complete tear-off and shingle replacement. They even worked a ten hour day on a Sunday to finish after a rainy week. Highly recommend this business!
I had a great experience with Brad, his son, Taylor, and their team ripping out our aging organic shingles and replacing it Owens Corning singles. They showed up ready to work when they promised; and always called or sent a text to let us know if they would be late. Brad and his team not only went above and beyond with the quality of their work but made recommendations based on their experience. When they removed the old shingles, they uncovered some areas that needed re-decking. They repaired the decking and did not raise the quoted price even after finding a few issues. Not only did they beat the estimated timeline provided but beat EVERY quote around us. They were able to deliver a finished product that exceeded beyond our expectations. Great service, best pricing, local, responsive and dependable! Very professional!
Replace roof shingles. Crew was very polite and professional. Highly recommend, as they were on time, and clean up was immaculate.
