Congratulations! You purchased a home! What now? It’s time to make a list of all of your home’s maintenance needs. At the top of your list should be preventative roofing maintenance. Think of it this way, you literally have to keep a roof over your head. In today’s real estate market, homes are often being sold without a roof inspection being required. If you purchased your home without an inspection, make sure you hire a professional to check your roof right away.
