What to Look for in a Roof When Buying a New House

Are you in the market for a new house? 

Is the home you’re buying showing signs of old age or water damage? 

A thorough roof inspection is essential when purchasing a home because the roof is what protects your house! 

Here’s what a thorough roof inspection should look like: 

Drone Inspection Vs. Boots-on-the-Roof  

Using only a drone, the inspector can see things like loose or discolored shingles, and cracks in the flashing. Information from drone inspections is limited. Information collected from drone inspections doesn’t provide everything needed to formulate proper quotes or estimates for repairs which can lead to things going undone. 

Boots-on-the-roof inspections provide a homeowner with all of the information needed to formulate an estimate and plan of attack. With a drone, you can see discoloration on the roof, with an in-person inspection, the roofer can figure out if the discoloration is from old age, water damage, or inconsistent material; all with different costs to repair. With an in-person inspection, the roofer can also get into the attic to see how far the damage has gone.
