Are you house shopping? When it comes time to buy a home, especially your first one, you will end up getting caught up in a lot of emotion and excitement due to the anticipation of home ownership. This means you might overlook the necessity of having an inspection on the new home, especially the roof. It can be worth the time and money to look into getting one. If you think you've found your dream home and are ready to put in an offer, make sure to let the sellers know that the offer is subject to an inspection that is acceptable to the buyer (your) standards before moving forward in the process.
Not just the foundation should be looked at when having an inspection prior to buying; don't overlook the roof. The roof is one of the more expensive parts of a home to replace or repair. What you didn't know is that you might be able to get this inspection done for free. Put in your offer, call three different companies and ask if they do free roof inspections. When it comes to finding a roof that has problems, they are the ones that are generally the contractors that fix these problems. Having them come out there to check for free is always a good way to find out what you need to know, while also getting them business at the same time.
You can also climb a ladder and check yourself, assuming you know what you're looking for and if you are okay to climb up that high without falling. ut you may not know what to look for, and it can be dangerous. It is not only safer but better to call a roofing company that knows what they are doing.
It could be worth your time to even pitch in some money to get the inspection done if no one does it for free. You're then able to use whatever it is they find to get money taken off the home due to the fact that you have to fix these problems when you move in. You can do the same thing for the other parts of the home that will need to be inspected, such as HVAC and the foundation.Planning on buying a new home?
