The Roof Over Your Head: A New Homeowner’s Guide


As a first time homebuyer, there are so many things to look out for that it can be completely overwhelming. Don’t let a home’s roof get lost in the shuffle! Having a proper roofing company inspect the roof of the house is essential to making an informed buying decision. Whether you have a sound roof and get some peace of mind from our inspection, or you find out it needs some work and can budget or negotiate accordingly, being fully aware of the state of the roof should be one of your top priorities during a home search.

The first useful thing to know is the roof’s age. Modern roofs can last decades, but there are some common issues that often emerge with time, and when they become severe enough it can finally require replacement. Ask about when the roof was installed, and see if there are any apparent issues from the ground. Are there shingles missing, sticking up, or curling? When your home inspector gives the house a once over, look at their pictures and see if there’s anything that looks questionable. But more importantly, call Bone Dry for a professional inspection!

Whether you suspect issues or not, we at Bone Dry are more than happy to look the roof over and give an estimate on its remaining life, as well as a price on any required repairs — or on a full replacement. A general home inspection and your own scrutiny are a start, but things can easily be missed, so it is wise to get a specialist to do a thorough evaluation before committing to a purchase. Call us at Bone Dry Roofing and we can help!
