Three Things New Homeowners Need to Know About Their Roof:
As a new homeowner, you have a made a huge financial investment and a huge investment in your future. While there are other aspects of your home you should keep in mind, your roof is one of the most important parts of your new home. Still, not every new homeowner is keen to what they should be aware of with their roof. Here are three things every new homeowner should know about their roof.
Find out the age of the roof. Most asphalt shingle roofs will only last 15 years. If you have purchased an older home, there is a chance you will need to replace your roof soon in order to avoid damage to your home. If you are still negotiating a price for a home, knowing the age of your roof could save you money on the home.
When a leak or other problems spring up with your roof, take the initiative and have these problems fixed immediately. Neglected roof problems can lead to severe damage in your home and will cost you more money down the road.
Sometimes roof warranties are transferable to new owners. Find out if your roof is under warranty just in case any problems arise in the future.
