If you have found the property that you want to buy, having the most important systems in the building inspected by professionals is an essential part of the purchasing process and the best way to find out exactly what you are buying. Standard home inspections rarely include the detailed assessment of the roof, so you will probably need a separate Flower Mound roofer to check the roof. Here are some questions to ask the contractor:
- The material and the age of the roof – each type of roofing material comes with a different lifespan. Even if the roof on the property looks good, if the material it is made from is close to the end of its warranted lifespan, you will probably need to factor the price of imminent roof replacement into the buying price;
- The current condition of the roof – you need a detailed report with all the minor and major damages on the roof. Ask questions about that topic and also request a written list of the damages;
- Your tasks as the future homeowner – ask the roofing inspector about the tasks necessary to maintain the roof. Find out about how complex the required maintenance tasks are and how the type of roof that is used on the house is repaired.
