Buying a new home may be the biggest investment you’ll ever make. Although the process is very exciting it quickly becomes overwhelming. While the home you have selected may appear to be just what you’re looking for, how can you be sure there aren’t potentially serious unknown defects which can make your investment in your future a costly one?
The roof is a critical component of any structure. Regardless of the climate, you will want to assure the roofing system in your structure is performing correctly. If your home is more than 25 years old, you may be required to provide proof that your roof has been replaced (or is under contract for replacement) to be eligible for coverage. You may be eligible, even without proof of replacement, if you submit documentation from a qualified inspector verifying the roof has at least three years of remaining useful life.
