Homework Assignment

Roofs are a very important component of any home, obviously. So know this, it will be a focal point for buyers. When we drive up to homes on my home tours the roof is one of the first things I look at. I want to know what type of roof we will be dealing with during the home inspection. Is it wood shake? Cement tile? Composition? Dimensional? Is it damaged? Is it newer, older? Believe me, this list can go on for a while.

If you are thinking of selling your home or currently have it listed for sale, consider this; the inspector, and in many cases, the appraiser will be up on your roof at some time. Get it looked at by a professional beforehand so you know what to expect during the inspection process. Also, be aware that some insurance companies charge a great deal more for premiums for wood shake roofs and, in some states, will not even insure them.

If your buyer asks for a roof replacement, make sure you talk to your insurance company before you shell out the dough. There might be some recent weather damage that only the inspection will reveal. In that case, you might have a settlement coming your way.
