Does Your Alabama Home Need A Roof Inspection?
Because you are going to put so much money, time, and effort into purchasing your new Alabama home, you should fully understand its condition before you make that purchase, by getting a professional roof inspection.
One important component whose condition you need to be aware of is the roof. To know the condition of your potential new home’s roof, call a roofing contractor for a roofing inspection before you commit to buying.
What Should Your Inspector Look For?
When conducting a roofing inspection, your roofing contractor needs to look at a number of potential problem areas from both the interior and exterior of your roof.
The interior of your roof can indicate the health and expected lifespan of your roof based on a number of details:
- Is the insulation intact or worn?
- Is mold present anywhere?
- Is light from outside visible through the roof?
- Is moisture present on the roof or its components?
The exterior of your roof remains exposed to elements at all times, so it has a high potential for developing issues. Your roofing contractor can detect the presence of these issues by looking at a number of your roof’s exterior features:
- Presence of shingle granules in gutters
- Ice dams
What Can Your Inspector Determine From All Of This?
After a thorough roofing inspection, your roofing contractor can provide you with a wealth of information regarding your potential new home’s roof:
- The age of the roof
- The projected lifespan of the roof
- Areas of your roof that require attention
- The cost of any repairs or replacements needed
With this information, you can make a fully informed decision as you decide whether or not to buy the home whose roof you had inspected.
