What First-Time Homebuyers Should Know about Roofing

If you have recently purchased a home, congratulations! We are sure you put a lot of care into choosing a home that is perfect for you and your family and your growing needs. However, many first-time homebuyers do not put a lot of thought into the roof on their new home.

In an article entitled 3 Things New Homeowners Need to Know about Roofing, Chris Spacek of Westside Roofing in Ohio lists some important considerations that you should be aware of. These include:

  • Warranty and Insurance: If the roof on the home you purchased is under warranty, this warranty may be transferable to you as the new homeowner.
  • Condition of the Roofing Material: Different roofing materials have different lifespans. Any noticeable damage should be attended to right away.
  • Maintenance, Repair and Replacement: Routine maintenance and repairs can extend the life of your roof so your dollar stretches further.

You can learn more about each of these by reading the full article here.
