Roof Condition

A roof inspection is one of those preventative maintenance jobs that's easy to overlook. Don't. Add a once-a-year reminder on your calendar to go out on a warm day and fix any problems you find. The roof is a critical component of any structure. Regardless of the climate, you will want to assure the roofing system in your structure is performing correctly. At Home Inspectors of South Florida, we take the time to evaluate the roofing system from the roof edge, roof top and the attic. Some of the components in your inspection report will be:

  • Material Condition
  • Roof Covering Age
  • Roof Covering Type
  • Geometrical Shape
  • Leaks
  • Visible Damage
  • and more...

If your home is more than 25 years old, you may be required to provide proof that your roof has been replaced (or is under contract for replacement) to be eligible for coverage. Use the chart below to determine whether this requirement applies to your property. If your home is subject to this requirement, you still may be eligible, even without proof of replacement, if you submit documentation from a qualified inspector verifying the roof has at least three years of remaining useful life.
