Inspecting a roof can pose challenges during the winter, especially when blanketed in snow. When covered in an inch or two of snow the roofing material is hidden and its condition is tough to ascertain. While you will not know the exact condition until the snow melts you can tell a lot by whether or not ice is formed. The other thing that snow makes difficult to see is the foundation. When snow is piled up against the home you may have to accept that you will not see the foundation until spring.
A positive aspect of a winter home inspection is the heating system. Your NJ home inspector will get a thorough look at how well the heating system works in a home and how warm (or cold) individual rooms may be. Likewise winter is a great time to experience whether a home is drafty or not.
