The Benefits Of Taking Care of Your Roof.
The first obvious benefit is that having a well taken care of roof will hold a properties curb appeal and certainly it will add value to your home if you decide to sell up and move into a new home.
Many first home buyers are usually unaware of a poorly kept roof, until they have a pest and building inspection.
“A building inspection is an inspection performed by a building inspector, a person who is employed by either a city, township or county and is usually certified in one or more disciplines qualifying them to make professional judgment about whether a building meets building code requirements. A building inspector may be certified either as a residential or commercial building inspector, as a plumbing, electrical or mechanical inspector, or other specialty-focused inspector who may inspect structures at different stages of completion. Building inspectors may charge a direct fee or a building permit fee. Inspectors may also be able to hold up construction work until inspection has been completed and approved.”

An investor with due diligence will have an inspection done before putting in an offer for a house, especially if the roof has not been looked after!
It is always good to remember that when you are selling a home, you are selling a roof over someone’s head!
