It’s pretty obvious but we’ll say it anyway. Purchasing a house is a major investment, one that is likely to be the biggest investment you’ll make in your lifetime. That is why it is critical that you ask ALL the important questions, especially when it comes to the roof. After all, it’s what will keep you and your family protected from the elements. To help you make the most informed decision, here are three roof-related questions to ask before you buy a house.
It’s pretty useful to know the name of the contractor that installed the roof so you can do your own research and determine if they are reputable and trustworthy. If you don’t like what you see after doing a bit of research, you might want to hire a professional to perform a thorough inspection.
Asking this question will help you determine whether you’ll need repairs or a full replacement anytime in the near future. If the current roof is nearing the end of its serviceable life, you might want to speak to the seller or your realtor about it. One thing you need to know, however, is that roof age is relevant. A 30-year-old asphalt shingle roof will be considered archaic and vulnerable while a metal roof of the same age will still have a lot of life left.
Roof manufacturers understand that people sell their homes That’s why transferable roof warranties exist. If you’re considering purchasing a house, ask to see a copy of the roof warranty so you can determine whether or not it is transferable.
