What to Look for in a Roof When Shopping for a New Home
Age of the Roof
It can often be difficult to find the source of a leak. You may need a professional to come and assess the roof. Be sure to factor the cost of a roof repair or replacement into your bid on the house.
In addition to looking bad, mold can cause terrible odors and affect the health of those living in the house. If there are signs of mold inside, you’ll need professional mold remediation to get rid of it. Home remedies will not work, and the mold will come back.
When checking the gutters, if the roof is made of asphalt shingles, check for granules. Excessive shingle granules are a sign of roof age and may indicate that it is time for a new roof.
A roof is one of the most critical components of a home. Ask questions, and look carefully. If you aren’t sure, ask a professional to come and inspect the roof before putting in an offer. A new roof is a considerable expense, and you’ll want to factor that into your home bid.
