Planning on buying a new home?
If you are in the process of purchasing a new home chances are it will be inspected by an appraiser, especially If you plan on purchasing via an FHA loan. Home buying inspections are usually conducted during escrow, and are geared to ensure the minimum requirements for what is considered a safe home are met, before it can be inhabited.
So what is the appraiser looking for when it comes to the roof? For starters, the roof must do what it's designed to do--FHA and HUD regulations say it must not leak or allow moisture to enter the home. in order to pass the appraisal process, the roof must also "provide reasonable future utility, durability and economy of maintenance" according to the FHA official site.
Rule of thumb is to not assume your roof is great condition because it passed an appraisal. If in doubt hire a professional to inspect your and determine how many years of your roof's life are remaining.
