Need a Roof Certification? No Problem!
Oftentimes, your mortgage company will require that your roof undergo a routine assessment to ensure its integrity. This typically happens prior to you purchasing your home, and then every 5 years or so to make sure that there are no major structural or protective issues with it. Without this roofing certification, you could be required to carry extra insurance on your home, or even see your mortgage rates go up. Fortunately, we here at JBC are just the allies you need to guarantee the continued optimal performance of your roof and its component systems.
What Goes Into a Certification?
Typically, your style of roof, its age, pitch, and/or its roof repair history are the major factors that your mortgage company uses in determining your need for a roof certification. As certified roof inspectors, we understand their requirements better than most. That knowledge will guide us in assessing your roof and reporting on its condition. As part of our roof inspection, we’ll look for the following things:
- Any damaged or deteriorated shingles or roofing tiles
- Cracks or other wear in the flashing
- Blockages in the gutter system
- Any potential movement the roof or its materials may have experienced
The purpose of the certification is to show that your roof is strong enough to endure another 5 years of exposure without experiencing any major issues. Perhaps the best thing to come out of it is that as the provider of your certification, we’ll address any problems outside of insurable damage at absolutely no cost to you.
