Homeownership can come with a lot of surprises. Have you ever seen the movie Money Pit? Everything that could go wrong in their fixer upper does. The bathtub even falls from the second story to the first – with them in it!
Before you buy a home, you’ll want to ask for a proper inspection and do your own due diligence to ensure that large systems in the house, such as the HVAC system, the appliances, and the roof, are all in good repair. A roof inspection in South Florida is especially imperative due to the beating that roofing structures in this area take from the sun and high winds during hurricanes. When you purchase a new home in South Florida, pay careful attention to the life and health of the roof.
First, scan the roof yourself for damage. You will be looking specifically for missing shingles or tiles, depending on the composition of the roof, as well as depressions within the roofing structure or any ridges that appear windblown. Once inside the home, crawl up into the attic spaces to review the underside of the roof and assess for water damage. Water damage within the home can lead to a host of problems such as mold, pest infestation, and dry rot.
