In Ontario, the number of insurance companies requiring a roof inspection prior to insuring a home is growing. Insurers are protecting their investments- and yours. Before purchasing a home, many home buyers have home inspections performed. Home inspections offer a general idea of the overall condition of the home and help you make a purchasing decision. They do not warranty a home, or make any claims on the state of the home, and the inspectors do not specialize in any one particular trade, such as roofing.
Foundations and roofs are some of the most important parts of homes, and some of the most costly to repair. Because a home inspection report may or may not include a roof inspection, and is not conducted my a roofing specialist, insurers, and smart home buyers are having separate roof inspections done.
Your roof inspection can:
- ensure you will be covered by your insurer
- help you gain mortgage approval
- help you negotiate a lower purchase price if the roof inspection proves roof repairs are required
Even recently installed roofs can be damaged or incorrectly installed. This is especially true around flashing, especially the metal flashing around chimneys. Proof of a recently installed roof is not proof of a properly installed roof.
