Frequently Asked Questions

Formal structured home inspections began to occur in the United States in the 1960’s, probably due to a growing consumer consciousness and self protective instinct. Industry growth has been fueled by numerous court rulings in recent years, that have given more protection to property buyers. In the old days, sellers were not required to disclose defects or problems with the property and the buyer had little recourse after the transaction was closed. The buyer was in a position of “buyer beware”. Nowadays however, buyers are more sophisticated, and those that order home inspections are in a position of “buyer be aware”, allowing them to know the condition of the property prior to consummating the sale.

Cedar shake shingles are a common roof covering material, highly valued for their rustic appearance. However, in some climates, shake shingles are less than an ideal material to use.

If you are planning to purchase a home with shake shingles, make sure to have it inspected by a professional to determine the remaining life expectancy. Also check with your insurance company to see if coverage is available and what the deductibles are.

Be aware that some neighborhoods have protective covenants, requiring shakes as the only approved roof covering material, forcing you to re-roof using a high priced material with limited life expectancy. Some Homeowner’s Associations are proceeding to amend their covenants to allow alternate materials, while others are standing firm on their restrictions. Check with your real estate agent to see if there are restrictions and if alternate materials are allowed.
