Roof Problems to Inspect for When Buying a Vacant HouseA house that’s sitting vacant can be extra vulnerable to some types of damage. For instance, if nobody is living there, who will notice a slow drip in the plumbing or the skittering sounds of rodents in the attic? If leaks and infestations go unnoticed, they could cause much more damage than usual. The same goes for roof problems. Here are some of the roof problems you’ll need to check for (or have a professional check for) if you want to buy a home that’s sat vacant for some period of time.
- Structural Problems From Old Water Damage
- Issues From Bats and Termites
- Problems With the Chimney
- Damage From Extreme Temperature and Humidity
