What To Look Out For?

Wondering what exactly you should be looking for when inspecting the roof of a potential home?

Roof Age

One of the most important things to inquire about is the age of the roof. Most roofs last between 10-20 years depending upon materials, how it was installed, etc. if the roof on the home is 10+ years or older, we definitely recommend a professional roofing inspection to determine the exact state of the roof.

Ventilation

Ventilation is another highly important part of a properly installed roof, sunlight and air need to be able to enter the space. Even with a brand new roof, ventilation can be improper. We definitely recommend a professional roofing contractor inspect for any ventilation issues.

Check Gutters

Most homes in the Florida Panhandle have a gutter system installed, it helps to move water away from the roof/home during storms. Make sure that all gutters are properly installed, draining properly and not clogged. Clogged gutters can increase the risk of leaks and water damage.

Leaks

Even the smallest of leaks can quickly become a serious problem when it comes to the roof of your home. We recommend hiring a professional roofing company to look over the whole roof, inside the attic, etc. to make sure there aren’t or never has been any leaks or water damage.
