We really don’t think of you as a “dummy” but we are aware that you are not aware of certain things about a house and its roof, so consider the home buyer tips...
Before you put a down payment on a house and sign on the dotted line, please have a roof repair company inspect the house. Roof damage is not always evident. Even if you have a third-party home building inspector review the house from top to bottom, he or she may not specialize in roofing issues. An experienced roof repair contractor can check the roof, attic and gutters for signs of deterioration and leaks that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Excess moisture in any part of the house leads to mold, mildew and rot, causing structural damage.
Something you may not know, but should know is the challenges you could face getting home insurance on your house if it has been involved in a previous insurance claim for water damage caused by a roof leak. Insurance companies don’t like paying for these damages. They will actually refuse to insure a home owner that has filed for this type of claim.
Even if you have never filed a claim for water damage, if there has been one filed for the house you are getting ready to buy, you may not find anyone willing to insure it. The insurance history of the house tends to stay with it, despite having a totally different owner. This is one of the home buyer tips not to be ignored.
