Why Roof Inspections are important to real estate

In Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains, it’s often required when selling a home to have the roof inspected and certified by a professional. The reason for this is that insurance companies for the most part will not insure the roof – and sometimes even the home – if the roof is decrepit. Since Oklahomans regularly experience severe weather such as tornados and hail storms, on average our roofs need to be replaced every five years! Due to this fact, most lenders require that issues with the roof be completed before they will even issue a check. The quickest and easiest way to make sure your roof and home can be insured before it goes on the market is to have it inspected by the roofing professionals at Sparrow Construction. A roof inspection from Sparrow Construction is always comprehensive and complimentary and will address critical questions such as the integrity of the roof, how long it can be expected to last, and possible future problem areas. With spring comes the “wet” season for real estate, so it would be a good idea to go into the market knowing that your home’s roof is well taken care of.

Our talented professionals also certify roofs that meet our inspection requirements, allowing you to provide your lenders or insurance carriers peace of mind on your shared investment. More importantly, it allows you to provide peace of mind to the new homeowner. Having a secure roof is one of the most important investments for the value of a home; unfortunately, it is also quite an expensive investment, especially if a home is bought under the false pretense that everything was taken care of, and up to standard. It makes sense that the person who lives in the residence would want their house to be secured as well. You wouldn’t want to be stuck with an unexpected leak repair bill, and you wouldn’t want to put another person or family in the same situation. Because when the rains come down, a tornado rolls through town, or a hailstorm hits, we all want to be able to sleep comfortably knowing we are protected from above.
