Tips on Performing a Roof Checkup When You Are Staging Home to Sell!

Oct-2013

Another important part of staging home for sale is doing a checkup on your roof to help diagnose any potential problems prior to putting your house on the market. If you find any problems, it would be to your benefit to fix the issues identified to ensure a smooth home inspection after you receive an offer.

You may want to hire a professional roofing contractor to assist you with checking your roof. However, homeowners may prefer to perform an initial inspection themselves. The following are some important safety tips to help when you prepare house for sale.

When cleaning your gutters or inspecting your roof, here are some important ladder safety tips:

  • Make sure the ladder is on solid, level ground.
  • Secure the ladder at the top to prevent it from slipping.
  • Inspect the ladder, rungs and rails for damage.
  • Extend the ladder at least 3 feet beyond the gutter, and angle it 1 foot back from the house for every 4 feet in eave height.
  • Always use both hands when climbing the ladder.

Once on the roof, you should look for:

  • Shingles that are buckling, curling or blistering; this indicates the end of the shingles' life expectancy.
  • Loose material or wear around chimneys, pipes and other penetrations.
  • Excessive amounts of shingle granules in your gutters; granules give shingles added weight and protect them from ultraviolet rays.
