Roof Repairs to Invest in Before Selling Your Home

Your roof is a very important part of your home that can make a huge difference in both how quickly it sells and for how much. Making sure that your roof is in great shape prior to selling is going to make a big difference in your bottom line.

What Roof Repairs Do You Need to do Before you Sell Your Home?

The first repair that you should invest in if you are going to sell your home is basic shingle repairs. If your roof is missing shingles, you need to have them replaced before you try to sell. The roof is one of the most important parts of a home inspection when someone is trying to get a loan for a new home. If the inspector notices that there are problems, they’re likely going to ask you to make the roofing repairs or to take some money off the selling price, since the new homeowners will be responsible for making the necessary roofing repairs themselves.

Another repair that is necessary to ensure a higher selling price is to check if the flashing on your roof and your chimney are in good shape. The flashing is where the roof is secured around a chimney or other exhaust. When the flashing is in bad shape, it can lead to leaks in the home and can cause water damage. With roofing repairs, you also need to ensure that the decking is in good condition. The decking is the roof that is under the shingles. If there are soft spots in the decking it can also cause a ton of water damage in the home.

How to Tell If Your Roof Needs Repair?

The easiest way to get help with your roof is to hire an inspector to take a look at your roof. An inspector has the expertise to spot problem areas and can tell you what needs to be done. According to Allstate, your roof should be inspected once or twice a year, and if you’re selling your house, you should have an inspection done before putting it on the market.

Your roof is vital to the overall health of your home and its structure, which is why it affects the way your house sells. If you need roof repairs, be sure to contact ROOFWORKS today.
