It protects your house from the elements and helps keep it cool and dry. It’s also one of the first things people notice when they drive up to a home.  Your roof should be maintained regularly to keep the value and condition of your home in top shape.

  • Your roof is made up of several layers of different materials, all of which are installed in specific ways. Here’s what you should be looking for:
  • Layers: When looking for a new roof, you should look for one that has multiple layers. They help protect your roof from the elements, and provide some additional insulation. When selecting a layer, ask yourself a few questions:
  • How does it impact the resale value of the home?
  • Is it strong?
  • How does it impact the appearance of the home?
  • Does it need to be replaced?
  • Is it leaky?

Look for a home with a solid roof. Roofs can crack and leak. Check the exterior of the home and see if it has water stains. If there is any damage to the roof, it’s time to call the roofer.

  • Don’t buy a home with a weak roof. This could lead to issues with the structural integrity of the home. If you find a home that has a weak roof, it could be an issue with the structure of the home, which means it could be unsafe.
  • Look for the roof and the building inspector’s stamp on the title. If there are no cracks or holes in the roof, it may be a sign that the home is structurally sound. If it doesn’t have the building inspector’s stamp, it might mean that it’s not safe.
  • Look for a solid foundation. The building inspector’s stamp on the title may also be a clue that the home is well built. If it doesn’t have a stamp, you may want to consider getting a home inspection. A solid foundation is key.
