Our roof inspectors are available 24 hours a day to search for both necessary roof repair work and for conditions which might causea roof leak in the future. We produce a written report with pictures, High Definition video, and detailed notes upon the completion of every roof inspection. Our reports indicate to the homeowner, (or homebuyer, home seller and their real estate agents) what is needed. All of our roof inspections include the detail and professional opinion (typically missing from home inspection reports) that is needed by mortgage lenders, homeowners insurance adjusters and roof riders on home warranty insurance policies.
Have your client obtain a Leak-FREE Roof Certification from Timothy Parks Construction, Inc. to help with negotiations while relieving both you and your client from disclosure risk. Did you know that roof leaks are the number one source of claims against home inspection reports and that the consequential damages can cost thousands of dollars?
If you are worried that the age or appearance of the roof might put off potential buyers or complicate negotiations, certifying the roof can really help. It’s sure a lot cheaper than recovering the roof.
Our Leak-FREE Roof Certification is a binding, transferrable service agreement providing potentials buyers with professional assurance that the roof will do its job for at least one more year. Before the roof can be certified, it must pass our patent-pending rooftop inspection process. If the roof fails inspection, we will discuss our findings and necessary repairs providing a detailed report including digital photographs and High Definition video. Your client – or the buyer – will have all the information they need to move forward. The easiest thing to do, of course, is to have Timothy Parks Construction, Inc. perform the repairs and issue the certificate.
If you think the home inspection has this covered, think again. In order to avoid claims against their E&O coverage, most home inspectors include language in their reports deferring the opinion on the roof via a recommendation to bring in a roofing professional. When the home inspector excludes the roof, the disclosure liability falls back on the seller and you – the listing agent.
