Im purchasing/leasing a property should i get the roof surveyed?

YES, WE CANNOT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH!. Did you know Roofs, on average, last only about half of their expected designed lifespan, why you ask? well, this is due to either the poor quality of installation or the lack of maintenance the previous property owner provided. 

This is why it’s so important to instruct a roof surveyor to carry out a roof inspection survey, as they will identify the condition of the roof from a non-biased point of view.

If the report comes back and the roof is good, you will have peace of mind that you are purchasing/leasing a watertight building.

If the report comes back and the roof is bad, then you can either negotiate rates knowing the risk or avoid the property entirely. Roofing Statistics Source

What you should expect from a roof inspection survey

During a visual inspection the surveyors will assess all elements of the roof system and will provide detailed information and non-biased comments on each element. Here is a list of elements that surveyors inspect:

  • Roof Coverings
  • Fixings/Fasnters
  • Penertrations
  • Guttering & Drainage
  • Parapet & Abutment Walls
  • Flashings
  • Chimney Stacks
  • Rooflights/Skylights
  • Fascias, Soffits and barge boards
The roof surveyor will identify the type, condition and defects of each element and create a detail roof condition report with photos to support comments. And provide recommendation on how to remedy any defects highlighted.
