Buyer’s and Seller’s have been blindsided with anew abstract, the Roof Certification. It’s a document only issued by those roofing companies with the right license.
At times, buyer’s request a roofing certification in order to help measure the quality of the top home priority. Other times, seller’s will be proactive, stay on-top of maintenance, and simply provide this along with a well maintained structure. If it’s requested, our job is to make repairs and issue certifications.
Lenders have picked up on the practice of requiring roof certifications for some loans as well, while a few mortgage companies require the document and inspection on every purchase. Refinances have also been known to request this service.
The good news, it is relatively simple, typically available for most roofs, and provides a lower cost alternative to entire roof shingle replacement due to minor issues. Repairs help keep trash out of the landfills, and it would be a shame to see a good roof go early.
