About Roof Inspections

A roof inspection is focused on this important component instead of the entire home. An experienced roofing contractor will take a close look at the structural integrity of the whole system to check for any issues that may pose a threat to your home. It requires an expert eye to detect signs of leaks and other forms of damage that may be hidden underneath the shingles.

Roofing contractors use different methods of inspection in assessing the overall condition of roofing systems. Traditional visual inspections involve getting up the roof and attic to check for damage. Some roofers utilize specialty tools that provide easier, less invasive ways of roof evaluation, including drones and infrared scanners.

Advantages of a Roof Inspection Before Selling Your Home

Having your roof inspected offers several advantages that can help boost your chances of selling your home. For one, making sure it is in good condition means you won’t be reducing your home’s actual value just to proceed with the sale. Your buyer can have a good return on investment on a well-maintained roof through transferable warranties or lower home insurance premiums.

A roof inspection also puts you and your buyer’s mind at ease about the quality of your home’s roofing system. During the selling process, you can obtain a roof certification, which is a document from the contractor meant to inform both parties about the roof’s condition and lifespan. It may not be a requirement, but having one enhances the chances of getting your home sold in a competitive market.
