Delaware Roofing Tip of the Month: Steps in Preparing Your Home for Roof Inspection

Hiring the service of the home inspection team is an integral part of selling your real estate property. Upon reaching your house, expect that they will inspect every corner, which includes the roofing system. It is essential to know that your house is fully prepared to avoid any issues. While some of the issues may seem to be inconsequential in your opinion, it can quickly add up and turn into major expenses.

4 Essential Tips to Prepare Your House for Roof Inspection

You have successfully listed your house in the market, and you have acquired a list of potential buyers. The next step is to survive the home inspection process. Pay attention to these steps to ensure that everything will proceed seamlessly.

1. Eliminate the Debris and Moss on Your Roof

When cleaning the moss and debris, you may use your standard broom and a cleaning solution. You may also use a leaf blower to dislodge the debris. Using bleach can kill the algae and the moss. However, it can also lead to discoloration of your roof. Some people will use pressure washer but use this when you only have an experience. Improper use of this equipment can result to damages in your tiles or shingles.

2. Repairing Your Damaged Shingles or Tiles

Observe your roof and look for any signs of patchiness. This disparity on colors can be a sign of missing or displaced shingles or tiles. Using the standard tool, it will be relatively easy to replace the shingles. Start by using pry bar or any type of device that you can slide under the damaged shingles. Lift the bar until the nails have been successfully removed. Replace the damaged part and affix it using nails. However, in case there are too many missing or damaged shingles, it is still advised to allow the experts to do this. Home inspectors are trained to determine substandard repairs.

3. Cleaning Your Gutters

Blocked water in your gutter can add strain on your roof. In addition, it is also an excellent breeding ground for insects and rodents. Most house inspector will consider the clogged gutter and downspout as a possible hazard. They will be contributing to the pooling of water, ice damming, and rotting. It will not take too long before some section of your roof will sag. You will need a ladder and gloves when cleaning your gutter. This may be strenuous and time-consuming, but this ensures that you will receive a passing grade from the inspectors.

4. Removing the Branches of Trees

The tree branches can easily scrape and damage the roofing material. Try to prune your trees before the home inspection team arrives. This can give them the idea that there are no water drainage issues on your roof. In case there are trees near your house that blocks the sun, try cutting it since a roof free from debris will demonstrate your diligence to the inspectors.

In case there are damages on the roof that you need to fix, and you are not comfortable in doing it, it is recommended to let the professionals deal with it. You can prevent accident and injury by allowing the roofing expert to conduct the repairs.
