Your roof’s condition is crucial in determining its ability to protect you and your home from harsh weather elements. That’s why when buying a home, knowing the quality and condition of a roof is vital in figuring out whether or not a property is worth investing in.
Read on as NC Rebuild, Inc., a trusted roofing contractor in the area, lists some key questions to ask before buying a home.
“Do You Have a Roof Report?”
Roof reports from professional inspectors can show you the real condition of a home’s roof. Your seller must be able to present a detailed roof report so you can confirm that the roof has been properly inspected and see any problems noted on the report. This will help you make a well-informed decision.
“Who Installed the Current Roof?”
Knowing the name of the contractor who installed the current roof will give you an idea of the quality of the installation. If the roofing company has a questionable reputation, you may want to contact a trustworthy residential roof repair and maintenance contractor to perform a full inspection.
“What Roofing Materials Were Used?”
The quality of the roofing materials impacts a roof’s functionality and lifespan. If incorrect or subpar products were used to manufacture or install the current roof, you’ll likely need to have it repaired or replaced in just a few years. Make sure that the home you’re planning to buy is built with top-quality materials to avoid premature and costly repairs.
