Last but not least, you need to find out whether or not your roofer has the knowledge necessary to do a great job.

Save Thousands When Buying a Home – Inspect the Roof!

by robbinsroofinginc on January 11, 2013

Buying a home is a major, life-changing decision. Home inspection is one of those things that many first time, and even experienced, buyers do not carry out thoroughly. Going through a potential home in detail before moving in can save you a lot of headache and money later on, especially when it comes to the roof. Roof inspections are, without a doubt, the most important thing you can do before buying a new home.

roof inspections are invaluable

What Should You Look For?

There are quite a few things you need to take into consideration when carrying out roof inspections. First of all, check for missing granules. If you are going to live in an area with frequent rains, you should check for roof granules on the ground. If you find them, it means the roof is beginning to wear out. If there is a combination of granules and shingles, it is a sign that the roof is damaged. No matter what, you should climb up to check the status of the roof and investigate the eaves troughs.

This brings us to dark streaks. Step back and take a good look at the status of your roof; use binoculars if you have them. Small dark streaks on your roof indicates it is in the early stages of a problem. If there are a large number of streaks, however, then it is time to replace the shingles. Without granules or shingles, the roof cannot repel water; it will build up over time and leak into the interior of the house.

Broken and mossy shingles can also be found while carrying out roof inspections. It is very easy to spot broken shingles—if you find any, replace them immediately. Seeing moss grow on shingles is a sure sign that the roof is no longer repelling water. You should replace these too.

Saving Your Time and Money

As you can see, by spotting the above, you can save yourself the headache of replacing or fixing the roof later. You can also save a lot of money by installing a new roof before you move in. As it stands, roof inspections are necessary and mandatory if you want to move in to a good home.
