Home Buyer’s Guide: What To Look For In A Roof :
No homeowner wants to buy a home only to discover they have unexpected projects to complete. You should be completely confident in the home you are buying. Here are a few things you should look for in a roof when you are buying a home.
A good place to start is to just generally observe the roof. Missing or broken shingles, bald shingles, and mold or moss growth are all signs you will need to, at the very least, make repairs to your roof. They can also be indicative of an aging or severely damaged roof, which means you will need to have a new roof installed once you buy the home.
If you notice a high level of moisture in the home, it could be a sign that the ventilation system needs some work. Moisture can also be a sign of leaks in your roof, so check the attic space for light shining through the roof, or water pouring through the roof if it is a rainy day.
Lastly, check to make sure the gutters are not broken or damaged.
Ultimately, if the roof is in poor shape, but you like the house, a roofing contractor will be able to work with you to install a new roof or repair the old one.
