Get Your Roof Inspected Before The Storm

- Thursday, October 14, 2010

Be sure to have a roofing inspection done on your home when buying or selling, before storm season, and after any storm that sustained damage in areas near your property. For us who live on the east coast, home maintenance and repair are aplenty, and while it is certainly suggested to have your roof inspected after a storm, regular maintenance is something that many homeowners’ overlook.

In the real estate market, roofing and its quality is a major selling point. If you have house on the market for sell, it would be good for you to host a pre-inspection. This will disclose to prospective buyers the age of the roof, and it will promise that the materials in place will last for a set amount of time in regular weather conditions. Have us come out and inspect your roof for you so you can know what needs to be done.

If you are looking to buy a home, know that this is one of the largest maintenance expenses of owning a home. Look for a newer roof adorned with strong materials known to withstand the regional weather. If you discover any immediate repairs or prospective replacements or will not guarantee the home's covering, then you have a bargaining tool. You can insist that the seller come down the price in order to save you money for upcoming repairs, or you can retract any bid from the home until the repairs are made at the expense of the seller.

Being in an area prone to hurricanes, storms, and windstorms proper roofing preventative maintenance can pay off. As storm season approaches, especially if this is your first season in the area, it can be helpful to get your home inspected by the best. Securing gutters, sealing vents, reinforcing materials, and checking for other prospective dangers can save you further damage in the eye of the storm, but most of all it will save you time. If you wait to make repairs after the disaster, you will be in a long line of customers awaiting a service that just doubled in cost.

Lastly, even if your home was not visibly damaged in a disaster, get it inspected anyway! A lot of roofing damage cannot be seen from the ground perspective, and insurance claims will be difficult if too much time has elapsed; you could find yourself absorbing the expense of storm damage that your insurance company will deem as normal wear and tear. In short, your home's roof is a major investment that should be protected as such. It shelters you, your family, and all of your belongings, and you should be preemptive about protecting it. Contact us today as we are in the middle of hurricane season it would be wise to get your roof inspected by professionals.
