Ask These 3 Roofing Questions Before Buying a New Home

Does one particular home catch your fancy? Before getting too excited about the prospect of this new home, you’ll need to take a closer look at some of its most important components – the roof system, in particular. You might want to learn more about its condition and performance by asking these questions. 

Ask These 3 Roofing Questions Before Buying a New Home

1. “How Old Is the Roof?”

You should ask the seller about the roof’s age. This way, you’ll have a clearer idea about its existing condition and determine its repair or maintenance requirements should any issue arise. Don’t be afraid to ask the home seller for documentation as well. You might need a roof replacement if the roof system is already nearing the end of its service life — a factor that usually depends on the type of material the roof has. An asphalt shingle roof, for example, can last up to 20 years with proper installation and maintenance. If the home you plan on buying has a shingle roof that’s barely a decade old, you won’t have to worry about getting a new one anytime soon.

2. “When’s the Last Time the Roof Was Inspected?”

The fact is that not all telltale signs of a roofing problem are immediately obvious. The system may have sustained minor cracks or dents from hailstones or wind-blown debris, or it’s possible that high winds have loosened the shingles and made them susceptible to leaks. If it has been a long time since the roof was last examined, you might want to consider having one done before signing on to this new home. Pressure Point Roofing, Inc., the area’s premier roofing company, will be more than happy to perform this task for you. Our team of professionals has the skills and experience to conduct a comprehensive and accurate roof inspection.

3. “Is the Roof Still Covered by a Warranty?”

Roof warranties add an extra layer of protection to your investment. Make sure to ask the seller if the warranty on the home’s roof is still intact. Depending on the manufacturer, the roof may also have a transferable warranty, so kindly ask the seller for a copy of the document, and carefully read through the terms and conditions.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
