Is your roof old? Are you planning on selling?
I am working with buyers who are currently working to purchase a home who's roof may be near the end of it's useful life. Without the assurance from a home inspector, the buyers are having a difficult time insuring the property.
If you have a roof that is older, and you are planning to sell, prepare yourselves for this to potentially become an issue for your buyers. It's summertime, a great time to have your roof replaced which will help sell your home quicker and for a better price, not to mention more conveniently for both you and the buyers.
In my situation with my buyers, we are calling on the inspector to identify the condition of the roof and hopefully assure the insurance company that it is still in good shape, if it is. If it is not, then we need to address this issue early on so that the buyers can purchase a home that will be in a good condition, requiring little to no additional repairs after purchase.
Prepare your home, sellers, for your buyers. It will save you from future hassels during a home purchase.
