I’m Selling My House and the Roof Fails Inspection…What Do I Do?

Blog Posts

I’m selling my house and the roof fails inspection. What do I do??? A roof inspection can end a potential deal when selling a house. Don’t be let a failed inspection derail your sale. There are steps you can take to avoid taking your house off the market when you’re ready to sell. Selling a home can be a stressful process for all parties involved. It’s important to keep in mind that the buyer would not have gotten an inspection if they were not truly interested in buying the home. They want to buy your house just as much as you want to sell it.

If there are missing shingles you may be eligible for an insurance claim. This works best for all parties involved because the roof may get fully replaced by the insurance company. Minor repairs benefit everyone because they can be completed quickly and keep costs down. Having the right roofing professional look at your roof is critical in this process.

But what happens if the roof is not eligible for replacement by way of insurance?

A lot of times the roof just needs some simple maintenance and even though it can be expensive at times this shouldn’t end a potential deal. Now the roof has lived its life and just needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that a new roof will substantially increase the value of your home.

A good realtor will help you find the right professional to help with this. You can get a reasonably priced roof for $7,500.00 on average. These expenses can be worked into closing and both parties bear some of the cost. Remember, if a buyer is truly interested in purchasing your home, they’ll be willing to work with you to ensure the transaction can be completed.

    Had a Hail Storm hit the house, had a feeling we would qualify for an insurance claim and Quality was the first and only call we had to make. Greg Wear was at our home in 3 days and his professional, humble and straightforward attitude … More were immediately apparent. Greg was an excellent ambassador to their business.
    Turned out, we not only qualified for a claim on our roof, but our gutters and patio awning as well!
    The crews they sent to our home for installation were friendly and efficient! I had one issue with some of the work, called Greg, and he had a guy at our house in 20 minutes! I didn’t even expect it to be addressed immediately, but these guys went above and beyond all my expectations, and the work they did was second to NONE, down to the little details. I HIGHY recommend Quality Exterior & Restoration for your home remodeling needs! ASK FOR GREG WEAR!! Great work, better guy. Id give them six stars if I could! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Quality Exterior and Restoration did a phenomenal job with every aspect of replacing our new roof. Gregg Wear worked with our insurance company and supplied them with photos and a detailed analysis of the roof's condition. His expertise … More and professional presentation helped convince our insurance company of the dire need for a new roof.
    Gregg was extremely informative, kind, respectful, and always punctual. His workers were also very professional, well-mannered and EXTREMELY hard-working. We were absolutely amazed by their work ethic.
    The entire process from start to finish went smoothly. The workers made sure to thoroughly clean up after themselves. You would never know we just had our roof replaced. The finished product is absolutely gorgeous and I can't say enough about the service we received.
    I would highly recommend anyone looking to replace their roof, to contact Quality Exterior and Restoration. You will not be disappointed.

    This review is very late. Our roof took damage in the May 2019 tornado. We talked to numerous companies and did our homework as best we could. Gregg Wear was patient, offered very neutral advice and worked with us to give us exactly what … More we wanted. He did not pressure and waited patiently while we made our choice. These things in particular made Gregg shine far above the other companies we shopped. Once decided, his crew showed up on time, finished on time, and did beautiful work. Now two years later, we are confident we got a top quality product at the best price by far. We are still extremely happy and would strongly recommend this company for roofing and gutters.
