Inspecting Chimneys and Shingles in Wisconsin
Your home’s roof is what keeps your family dry and comfortable even during harsh Wisconsin weather like snow and rainstorms. Wall to Wall Home Inspection Services offers comprehensive exterior home inspections, including roof and chimney inspections. Our certified inspectors use the latest technology and techniques to safely examine roofs. Using a pole mounted camera we can even inspect roofs during winter. The pictures we take will give you an accurate idea of any repairs needed for your roof, shingles or chimney.
The shingles on your roof work with the siding and trim to protect your home’s exterior. They keep the building insulated, direct water to the gutter system to stop moisture from getting inside, and add to the outward appearance of your house. Our inspections ensure the roof is functioning correctly by checking shingles for damage.
Common Signs of Roof Shingle Damage
- Denting or cupping
- Granule loss
- Raised staples
- Thermal splitting
Sometimes a shingle single can come loose for no reasons. Other times, shingle damage is an indicator of larger roof problems. Read about our roof shingle inspection success stories to learn more about common shingle damage.
One of the biggest threats to Wisconsin roofing? Wisconsin weather. Snow and rain can seep between shingles, leading to water damage or freezing in place. Frozen water expands, displacing shingles. Damaged shingles might fall off and leave your home exposed to the elements. Make sure your roof is in good shape before winter storms start.
Wall to Wall inspectors will check any chimneys your home has along with your roof. A damaged chimney can lead to problems within your home. Animals might damage the interior of a chimney by trying to build a nest. Freezing and thawing ice can ruin the masonry around a chimney and let water in. Blockages to the system means smoke might ventilate back into your home, making it hard to breathe and leaving smoke stains all over walls and ceiling.
Our inspectors examine chimneys and fireplaces for any signs which indicate damage.

Wall to Wall is experienced with climbing up on roofs or using our pole mounted camera for thorough inspections you won’t get from anyone else.
We have worked with all types of shingles made from:
