Roof repaired? Call the roof Dr. Desert Sun Inspections  Carlsbad, NM.

Here is the story of why you trust no one when buying a home.

Single mother and One small child. Rent was too expensive for the single mother to stay where she had been living. So when a lifelong friend of the family heard she was looking for a new place to live he told her he had a Manufactured home for sale.

She went to the home and looked it over. This is great she thought as she walked through the home.

Something I can afford and I would have my own home.

So off to the bank she went to get a loan for the purchase of the home. She was approved for the loan. Good news for the single mother. Right?

Not so fast. The loan manager told her she would need insurance on the home.

So now off to the insurance company to get the required insurance for the loan.

Not so fast. The insurance agent asks her if there had been a home inspection on the home when she bought the home. Her reply, no.

The agent told her she needs to get a roof inspection before they could insure the home.

She told her father who knew of Desert Sun Home Inspections. She called me and I had went there to the home last night. Not a big deal to inspect just the roof right? I noticed a couple of issues right from the start, hoping the home was in better shape when I get onto the roof, I got my ladder off the tuck and went up on the roof. OH NO.

Here is what I found when inspecting this roof.

Roof damaged.This roof was beyond repair. The roof doctor needs to be called to replace this roof. Repairs were made to the roof time and time again.

Then when that didn't work they added a sealer over the shingles.

Roof damaged.These broken and damaged shingles were all over the roof.

In my honest opinion, I think uncle Bob had done the repairs.

There was no Duct tape present. But I have seen a lot of his work.

The seals for all the boots were degraded to the point they were not even there anymore.

Now the roof is in need of replacement.

New roof = insurance = loan = Home.

The buyer was to get with the seller about the roof.

Hopefully the seller will stand tall and replace the roof. if not, the home purchase may not be able to take place.

No matter who you want to buy a home from. Always and I mean always get a home inspection.

A home inspection could have saved her from a lot of disappointments.

 

This is why you always get a "Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Have a great day every one.

 Good morning, Clint. Under the hot sun of the desert, a repair like this may last a year – two at best.

What a mess.....I have a feeling she's not going to get the home Clint, but better off without it than having that expense down the road.

Interesting that they would require that inspection, and it's good they did.  Does she have money laying around for the new roof she would have needed had they not required that inspection?  Likely not.

Hi James,

No matter who has the home for sale. Get a home inspection. She could have avoided these issues if she would have had one.

Have a great day in Rogers.

Hi Lenn,

I don't think so. The seller has to sell the unit. And the buyer has paid him $ down already.

Have a great day in Loudoun County.

Hi Michael,

Yep, and it looks like they had been done a long time ago. The roof is leaking as we posted this one.

Have a great day in Brentwood.

Hi Mr. Bond.

I think she will. The roof is the major repair. The seller should make good I hope.

Have a nice day in Ohio.

Hi Jay,

She put down all her savings for the home.

This means no cash for a new roof. The seller needs to stand tall on this one. I hope he will.

Have a good day in Bristow.

Clint, what a patch work looking roof. I'm wondering if the seller knew about the condition. This is actually why inspections are so very important in a purchase.

Hi Adrian,

She told me the seller told her the roof had been worked on. That was it. He didn't tell her what year it was worked on.

Have a good day in Seattle.

Hi Joan,

She told me that if and when the roof gets repaired she would call me back for a Trust but verify inspection so she can get the insurance on the home. I hope they get it fixed soon.

Have a great day in Denver.
