Are you looking to purchase or sell your house? We know you don’t want to purchase a new roofing install, roof repair, but what about a roofing certification? A roofing certification can be your best friend when you are getting prepared to put an offer on that new home in Schererville, Indiana or looking to sell one in Tinley Park, Illinois. Don’t fall prey to the real estate game of “it is, what it is” or drop your price.
In certain cities such as Dolton, Calumet City, Lansing, Park Forest, and South Holland, Illinoi you might be required to obtain a roof certification before occupancy. We recommend checking with the local building department and zoning department to make sure. Even if it’s not required it’s worth it.
What is a roof certification?
These are considered a specialty certificate because its not part of the home inspection report. As a licensed Illinois roofing contractor we can provide these services and we perform a deep inspection of the existing roofing system. The roof report will include the following.
Roof Certification Guidelines
- Possible loose roofing materials/missing
- Review of all gutters, metals, and drainage.
- Review the flashings on pipes, chimneys, walls, & skylights.
- Review the age of the shingle & layers of roofing material.
- Review for storm damage
- Age of the roof & quality of existing water shedding material.
If the roof fails this inspection due to serious issues in the following guidelines a repair estimate will be provided and/or estimate for an entire roof replacement. The roofing certification should last three years. The Total Roofing team will document and record photos for our records. This service can provide you a peace
of mind when purchasing a new home or give you an idea on the potential lifespan of your roofing system. Book your appointment today!
