Congrats on being a new homeowner! When you’ve just bought a house, it can be overwhelming to decide what needs to be done first after you sign the papers and start to move in. Don’t forget to add “call a roofing expert” to your to-do list! Here’s why.
1. Roof Repairs
Whether you’ve got missing shingles, algae growth, or storm damage, you shouldn’t put off getting roof repairs done. The longer you wait to fix your roof, the more at risk you put your home for leaks and water damage. This could increase how much you have to spend on repairs.
2. Roof Replacement
If your roof needs to be completely replaced, don’t delay that project either! Call a roofing expert as soon as you realize you need a roof replacement so that you can get a quote and the work can begin. Again, the longer you wait, the more money you may have to pay should the damage expand to the interior of your home.
3. Roof Report
After buying a house, it can be incredibly helpful to get a roof report. It’s important to get a professional to thoroughly inspect everything and provide you with a report of his findings so that you know how to best care for your roof moving forward. Knowing the condition of your roof from the start helps you protect your investment and prevents unpleasant surprises down the road.
4. Roof Installation
Commercial sectors may need to call a roofing expert after purchasing a piece of property to get a quote for a roofing installation. Most companies (including Timeless Roofing!) provide free quotes, so there’s no risk in getting someone to come out and give you a project estimate.
5. Roof Cleaning
Over time, dirt, leaves, and other debris can really pile up and create a messy-looking roof. This kills your curb appeal and may gradually compromise the integrity of your roof! Having a professional deep clean your roof when you first move in can bring you much-needed peace of mind as you unpack and settle in. Plus, it will be easy to remember when it’s time to get a roof cleaning: it will be around the same time as your move-in date each year!
