When you are buying or selling a home or property, you want to know that your roof is in good shape and ready to withstand the elements to protect your investment. From the harsh summer sun and big windy storms to large tree branches scraping shingles and roofing tiles, and more, an Arizona roof can lose integrity over time. That’s why it’s essential to have a roof inspection performed by a qualified inspection company before any money changes hands.
At Vannier Home Inspections, we’re not a roof inspecting company or roofing contractor, but we perform a roof inspection with our full home inspections for buyers and sellers. When our certified inspectors perform a roof inspection, we check the roof covering, anything sticking out of the roof, and flashing.
If you’re thinking of hiring a third party to perform your roof inspection, you’ve come to the right place. As your source for home inspections, Vannier Home Inspections can give you vital information before buying or selling your home.
Why Should You Hire a Home Inspection Service to Perform Your Roof Inspection?
They Can Find Damage
The Arizona climate can be tough on both residential and commercial roofs. The sun’s ultraviolet rays can degrade roofing material. Water damage can occur long before you notice a leak. High winds can dislodge shingles or roofing tiles. Improper ventilation can cause condensation, which may lead to rot and decay.
A professional can help you identify a problem before it becomes a more significant issue with a costly fix. When we perform the inspection, we will check the entire roof for material condition, flashing installation, weak spots, and leaks.
They Can Help You Price the Property
If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t check your attic or roof regularly. If you don’t find and repair roof damage quickly, it can worsen and turn into a full roof replacement. Getting a roof inspection before putting your home on the market will let you know its condition so that you can price your home appropriately.
When buying a new home, you can expect that the roof will have some degree of wear and tear (unless you are buying a house that’s just been built). A roof inspection can help you determine its age, if it’s been properly maintained, and how long before repairs are needed. The roofing report may help you negotiate a better price for the property.
They Provide Peace of Mind
Roofs have a shelf life, and roof damage can cause costly structural damage that no home buyer or seller wants to deal with. A roof inspection report removes the guesswork and lets you know whether the roof is in good shape or if repairs are needed. That’s a win-win, no matter if you are a buyer or a seller.
