If you are currently looking for a home to buy, you probably know that having your own experts inspect the building you are planning to make your offer for is essential. One of the most important systems that you should get inspected before you buy the property is the roof, so here are a few tips for you if you want to make sure that the roof inspection on the property is comprehensive and thorough:
- You can hire a general home inspector or a thorough Fayetteville roofing contractor – general home inspectors check the entire building, from the rooftop to the remotest corner of the basement, they will record whatever they find and they will also provide you a summary of their findings. A roofer is an expert in roofing who will be able to notice any fault or potential problem on the roof, but he will check only the roof, so you will need to hire others for checking the plumbing, the electrical wiring and the walls for you;
- Make sure that your roof inspector checks for all major faults – missing roof components, moss, mold, mildew, infestations with algae, signs of water damage, such as ponding water and dampness in the attic, ventilation issues and damaged flashing are examples of the most common roof faults to check for.
