5 Things First Time Home Buyers Should Do About Their Roof

Buying your first home is exciting. But the process can also be a bit overwhelming. There are lots of things buyers need to check to be confident their purchase will protect themselves and their families for many years.

Here are five things to do when it comes to maximizing the value of your home’s roof:

1. Get a roof inspection. Every home must be inspected before it is sold. However, most inspectors do not climb up on the roof. We recommend you hire a roofing professional to determine any repairs or issues that may exist.

2.Get a guarantee. Make sure you get a guarantee of the work that a contractor does for you. Ask for their license number in order to qualify them a reputable contractor.

3. Learn about your roofing options. New homeowners may not know about the many choices they have in roofing materials. For example, if you are moving to an area that is subject to frequent storms or hail, you may choose impact-resistant shingles. On the other hand, if you are concerned about energy efficiency, there are roof options that will save you money on heating and air conditioning.

4. Invest in preventive maintenance. Be sure to take care of minor issues that could can potentially lead to expensive repairs down the road.

5. Identify trouble spots. A top roofing company should pinpoint leak-prone areas such as flashing, gutters and skylights as well as steps to take to remedy them.

Remember, as a new homeowner you need to be alert and informed about all aspects of your home—especially critical components like the roof. Contact us for additional ways to safeguard your most valuable investment.
