If you are looking to sell your home, you’d want to make sure you get the most out of its overall value. For starters, consider the impact the roof is going to have. An unsightly roof that hasn’t been given much attention for years can discourage buyers. This is where a roof inspection becomes of utmost importance. Not only will the value of your home increase, but also improve your chances of getting a better return on your investment.
Here’s the importance of having your roof inspected before selling your home.
Expert Advice from Your Roofer
Expert roof inspectors can check if the asphalt shingles, flashings and other components show signs of deterioration due to long-term exposure to the elements. They’ll also go up the attic to inspect the insulation and the roof’s rafters or trusses for mold, mildew and rot. Be sure to hire a licensed and insured roofing contractor for this. If you settle for the home inspector, expect the person to only take a cursory look at the roof and attic.
Peace of Mind as the Seller
A thorough inspection conducted by your chosen roofing contractor allows you to tell potential home buyers that the whole system is in great condition. If the roof has signs of damage, you can always provide the buyers with a complete and detailed report as to what needs to be repaired. By being transparent, you earn their trust by answering one of their big questions. It can also help improve your chances of closing a deal at your requested price.
