“New Roof!” How many times have you read this statement on a listing? While I agree that the installation of a new roof is a HUGE plus, it may not always be what it seems…! This roof had indeed been installed about a month prior to the contract, however during our inspection it looked pretty beat up. Of course, both the buyer and seller representatives were upset at the news, but after 2 additional, independent roof inspections, it was determined the roof needed to be replaced. If a roofing company is installing a roof in the middle of summer, they can do as much damage as a major hail storm damage just by being careless.
