One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make when they’re having work done on their home is they forget to get it permitted. Many homeowners think that because they own their home they can do whatever they want to it. While this is mostly true, all homeowners still have to obtain permits to do any major work on their home. If they fail to do so, then it’s quite likely that whatever work they do won’t be included in the next appraisal of their home. If they don’t get the work permitted then they can’t include said work with the value of their home. This is a horrible thing for most homeowners as they realize that all the money they spent to get work done was all for naught because it didn’t increase the value of their property.
Not only will the work not be included in their home appraisal, but it’s also very possible that the work won’t be up to code because it wasn’t reviewed by an inspector throughout the process. Thus, what ends up happening is that people have to spend even more money when they’re trying to sell their home because they have to get the work inside up to code. It’s a total nightmare, and it’s added stress that most people don’t need when they’re trying to sell their home.
These are just a few of the reasons why it’s so important for you to find a roofer who will make sure your roof is up to code. It’s absolutely critical to make sure that the roofing company you hire has a strong understanding of the various codes in your municipality and state. They must know exactly how the roof has to be designed, what types of materials are allowed and which are not, and what things must be put on the roof to make sure that it’s up to code. While great companies, like Academy Roofing Inc., understand this, there are plenty out there who do not. Make sure to interview any roofing company you’re considering hiring to make sure that they have a strong understanding of the various codes in your area and how they will ensure that they are followed.
Of course, finding a roofing company that knows the codes is only part of the battle. What good is it if your roof is up to code but it falls apart within a year or two of the work being done? Thus, you must also find a roofing company that will build you a roof that is going to last for years and years. Being up to code is great, but having a roof that doesn’t fall apart or leak is equally important. Thus, only work with roofing companies that promise you that everything will be up to code while also working hard to ensure that you end up with a roof that is going to function properly for years and years to come. Once again, Academy Roofing Inc. is one such company. Give them a call today to set up an appointment.
