A New Texas Law – What YOU Need to Know About Paying Your Insurance Deductible

Elevated Roofing HB 2102

2019

Have you been waiting to repair or replace your roof? Here’s what you need to know about paying your deductible now that HB 2102 has been passed. HB 2102 (a NEW Texas Law, starting September 1st, 2019), now requires ALL Texas homeowners to pay their homeowners insurance deductible. However, HB 2102 does allow for you as a homeowner to pay your deductible in installments, but even paying in installments can still be overwhelming if you don’t have the funds to cover the payments.

What is HB 2102?

Here is the nuts and bolts of HB 2102 that Texas governor Greg Abbott, signed on June 14, 2019. Homeowners, such as yourself, in North Texas can no longer take advantage of a “Free Roof”. It had become common practice for roofing contractors to offer to waive your deductible to help you get a new roof due to hail or wind damage. Even though this has technically been illegal in Texas since 1989, the statute was not well written so there was little enforcement. This new law, HB 2102, makes enforcement possible.

What Does This Mean for YOU, the Homeowner?

How does this new law affect the roofing contractors you will be working with? Under the recently approved Texas House Bill 2102, any roofing contractor that offers to waive your deductible on your property insurance could be facing criminal charges. So, roofers are now required to state in their contract in boldface language that you must pay the deductible under your property insurance policy. Since this House Bill is in effect, it’s now a criminal offense for a roofing contractor to do the following for you:

• Pay your insurance deductible;
• Waive your insurance deductible;
• Absorb your insurance deductible;
• Rebate your insurance deductible; or
• Offset your insurance deductible.

If you knowingly submit or allow a claim to be submitted with a waived or reduced deductible, YOU, as an insured policyholder are also in violation of the law. This new law helps protect you as the consumer from the onslaught of roofers that go door-to-door after Texas storms that are not accredited and may leave you with sub-par work, or even a partially completed roof.

How Does This Law Work for the Insurers?

This new bill even affects the way your insurance company handles your claim. Now as a provision of the new state law, your insurer may refuse to pay a claim for withheld replacement cost holdback until they receive reasonable proof that you’ve paid your deductible. Your insurer can ask for the following as proof you’ve paid your deductible:

• Canceled checks,
• Money order receipts,
• Credit card statements,
• Copy of an executed installment plan contract, or
• Another type of financing arrangement to pay the full deductible over time.

While this may seem like an extreme measure, this new law is to better help protect YOU from being taken advantage of, by disreputable contractors, who botch roof jobs that cost you more money over time and take your insurance money and leave you without completing your roof in an acceptable manner.

We at Elevated Roofing, are Here to Help!

Here at Elevated Roofing, we know it is not an option to ignore the damage to your roof and hope that it doesn’t get worse. And attempting to get a lower deductible from your insurance company means you’ll have to pay a higher premium.

Understanding The Different Types of Roofs
26
Jul
2019

Trying to figure out what the different types of roofs are, what the different roof designs and styles mean, and what roofing materials work best for your home can be overwhelming. There are many varieties to pick from depending on your roof type, the look you are going for, and the amount you can afford to spend. Let’s take a look at the different types of roofs, roof materials and roof designs.

What are the different types of roofing materials?

With so many different types of roofing materials and shingles out there, it can be difficult to figure what roofing materials works best for your project. What are the pros and cons for different types of roofing shingles and materials?

  • Tile Shingles

    • Pros – Tile shingles are favored by those who are concerned with curb appeal. Homeowners who have Spanish or Mediterranean flair along their home exterior will immediately fall in love with tile shingles. They provide an idiosyncratic visual appeal that has the potential to last for 80 years or longer. You’ll be hard pressed to find a shingle that lasts longer.
    • Cons – The cost can be high. Your home must have sturdy roofing framing that is sufficient enough to hold the weight. Walking on the tile shingles can cause them to break. Tile shingles require a skilled professional roofer to install.
  • Asphalt Shingles

    • Pros – The asphalt shingle is the most popular type of roof shingle. It is low-cost and fully compliant with Energy Star requirements for the “cool roof” rebate. In general, roofers consider asphalt shingles to be of good quality. You can expect asphalt shingles to last between two and three decades.
    • Cons – Though they are somewhat thinner than other shingles, asphalt shingles are quite durable. If you would prefer a shingle that lasts even longer, consider thicker versions of the traditional asphalt shingle. Though an upgraded version of the asphalt shingle will cost more, you won’t have to shell out money for a deductible each time a massive storm tears through your town.
  • Wood Shingles

    • Pros – Wood shingles have a naturally aged appearance that many homeowners adore. These shingles also have a great curb appeal for homeowners. The lifespan of wood shingles is determined by the type of wood the homeowner selects. Redwood and cedar roof shingles can last upwards of half a century.
    • Cons –  Wood shingles cost more than the asphalt variety yet they provide a more attractive aesthetic. Wood shingles can be very difficult to install and damaged shingles need to be replaced immediately to prevent further roof damage. They are not easy to install if you are looking to do the work yourself. If you aren’t pinching pennies, wood shingles are the perfect addition to your home.
  • Metal Roofs

    • ProsMetal roofs are ideal for homes that feature a steep or flat roofline. Homeowners who opt for a low-galvanized metal will find that metal roofs are extremely cost efficient. This roof’s affordability is one of the main reasons why it has become so popular. Metal roofs reflect UV rays which adds to its energy efficiency for longer term savings. Don’t worry about your metal roof’s lifespan. It will likely last around half a century.
    • Cons – A metal roof on a steeper pitch can cost more during installation. This initial cost is made up for in savings from lower energy bills. Sound can echo during a loud rainstorm which can be bothersome for some people. Metal roofs do require skilled professional installation to help them last longer. 
  • Slate Shingles

    • Pros – Slate shingles are created from a sedimentary rock being split into thin sheets. Slate shingles have the potential to last 75 year or longer. They are great for resisting water absorption and are not easy to damage in wind and hail storms.
    • Cons – Slate shingles cost more than asphalt, but provide a unique appearance. You need to have sturdy roofing framing that is sufficient enough to hold the weight of a slate roof. Installation and repairs need to be made by a skilled professional. 
  • Synthetic Rubber Slate Tiles

    • Pros – Synthetic rubber slate tiles have a natural appearance. They can cut with a knife to fit more intricate roof styles. The synthetic rubber slate tiles are much lighter than slate tiles. The lifespan of synthetic rubber slate is determined by the type used. 
    • Cons – The cost of installing synthetic rubber slate tiles is still high but it is lower than natural slate. They are susceptible to damage from satellite dishes, walking on them, or hail. Synthetic rubber slate tiles are not as durable as slate tiles. It can be harder to find a skilled professional that can install synthetic rubber slate tiles.
  • Built-Up Roofing (BUR)

    • Pros – Built-Up Roofing (BUR) consists of layers of asphalt, tar, or an adhesive with an aggregate. Using BUR is perfect for flat roofs that have roof-top decks or generally lots of heavy foot traffic. To get the most out of the longevity of BUR, get regular inspections and repairs (as needed) and keep debris off your roof. 
    • Cons – The cost of BUR can be more than a variety of asphalt. You must have a flat roof or a very slight pitch for BUR installation. BUR can become sticky in the summer.
  • Green Roofs

    • Pros – Green roofs are extremely eco-friendly. The roof is covered in plants to help improve air quality, reduce water run-off, and help insulate homes. This helps to lower the urban heat island. Using a green roof can help reduce your energy bills all year long. With regular maintenance, a green roof can last for a long time.
    • Cons – The cost of installing a green roof varies by type. Green roofs require more effort including: substantial structural support, waterproofing, drainage, water filtration, soil, and plants.  Regular maintenance is a must for a healthy green roof.
  • Solar Tiles

    • Pros – Solar tiles work twofold to help protect your roof and to be an energy producing system. Solar tiles can be installed seamlessly into your existing shingles. The addition of these tiles can help offset energy costs.
    • Cons – With this type of tile being newer, solar tiles still have a high cost. The price of solar tiles is lowering as they become more popular. Solar tiles do require a skilled professional to make sure they are installed correctly.

What Are The Different Types of Roof Designs, Roof Shapes and Roof Styles?

Knowing your roof style can help you decide what roof material or shingle works best for your home. If you are not sure about what type of roof design or roof style you have, below are 13 different types of roofs. So, what are these different types of roof designs, shapes and styles?

  1. Saltbox Roofs

    The Saltbox roof is favored by those who are concerned with visual appeal. Its unique style provides some lovely eye candy for onlookers. It features a long pitch, asymmetry and two sides with contrasting long/short lengths. Saltbox roofs are commonly featured on homes that have a single story on one side and two stories on the opposite side. The saltbox design tends to provide more wind resistance than a standard gable house.
  2. Mansard Roofs

    Mansard roofs are constructed with four slopes. Each side of the home features two slopes. The lowest slope is steeper than the upper one. In some instances, the upper slope cannot be seen from ground level. The roof’s unique French aesthetic permits extra living/storage space at the top portion of the house!
  3. Gambrel Roofs

    Gambrel roofs aren’t too much different from mansard roofs. The main differences are that the Gambrel style roofs feature upright gable ends and have Dutch roots as compared to the mansard’s French roots.
  4. Pyramid Roofs

    A pyramid roof is just as it sounds. It’s shaped in the mold of a pyramid! Pyramid roofs are typically installed on diminutive portions of a home. They are also commonly installed on garages, pool houses and other small structures.
  5. Hip Roofs

    Hip roofs are not much different than pyramid roofs. Rather than creating a point at the top, each side connects at a flat section or ridge. From an architect’s point of view, the hip roof is much more pragmatic than the pyramid roof. This is the most common style of roof and tends to perform better in high wind areas.
  6. Cross Gabled Roofs

    This style of roof resembles a triangle when viewed from the home’s front yard. Though there are several different varieties of gabled roofs, they are especially beautiful (and functional) on homes that feature extra wings. This way, each section of the house can have its own cross gabled roof for the ultimate aesthetic appeal.
  7. Flat Roofs

    Flat roofs are fairly easy to construct compared to other, more nuanced types of roofs. Flat roofs are favored for their simplicity and accessibility. A flat roof can withstand your weight if you decide to walk on it. The only downside to this style of roof is that dirt, dust, leaves and other debris can collect on its surface more easily than other roof varieties.
  8. Bonnet Roofs

    Bonnet roofs aren’t much different from hip roofs and pyramid roofs. However, this roof features two sides that slope outward at angles as a means of providing shelter for an outdoor seating space. With the eaves extending beyond the house, it is easier to avoid water seeping around the flashing and down the interior walls.
  9. Skillion Roofs

    A Skillion roof is constructed with a single slope. It is best thought of as a hybrid between a triangular roof and a flat roof. In many instances, skillion roofs are used on a single section of a house. Rainwater tends to run easily off of skillion roofs.
  10. Sawtooth

    Sawtooth roofs have two or more parallel pitched roofs in which the slope and vertical surfaces alternate. The exterior resembles the side view of a saw blade. The high peaks allow for vaulted ceilings or loft living spaces.
  11. Butterfly Roofs

    A Butterfly roof is constructed of two tandem pieces that meet in the middle and are angled up in a V-shape. The way the two pieces meet in the midsection give an effect of a butterfly’s wings in flight from the exterior. The midsection of the butterfly roof allows for rainwater to be collected so more drainage is required down the center.
  12. Curved Roofs

    Curved roofs are not much different than skillion roofs, except the planes are curved. The curve can be designed slight or with more of an arch shape. Curved roofs create a unique curb appeal. A lower slope is great for high wind areas and a higher slope is great for allowing water run-off.
  13. Domed Roofs

    The Domed roof is polygonal with an inverted bowl shape. Domed roofs are not only beautiful in design but also very durable. The construction of domed roofs vary on the complexity of a project and can add more curb appeal to a home. They are often added to cupolas and gazebos.

7 Tips for Selecting a Trustworthy Roof Repair Company

Posted by: Elevated Roofing   /   Tags: , ,   /   Comments Off on 7 Tips for Selecting a Trustworthy Roof Repair Company
How to Select a Trustworthy Roof Repair Company
21
Mar
2019

As a homeowner, when it comes to repairing roof damage, your first priority is to select the right roofing company. Quick tip – be discerning and selective about the contractors you allow on your roof.

Here is exactly what to look for when considering a roof contractor.

1. Check the Qualifications

The roof repair company should have the proper qualifications including certification, licensing and insurance. If the roofer lacks any such qualifications, think twice before letting them work on your roof. The roofer should provide proof of insurance for liability as well as workers’ compensation. This way, if something goes wrong or if a worker is injured on your property, you will not be liable for the damages.

2. Find out What Current and Former Clients Have to Say

Above all, client feedback matters the most. Obtain several referrals from current and former clients to gauge their merit. Take a look on the web for reviews. Ask the roofer for the contact information of references. Reach out to these clients and ask them about the roofer. Weigh all of the positives and negatives from this feedback before making a decision. (To see Elevated Roofing’s review, visit our Raving Fans page.)

3. Local Roof Repair Companies are Ideal

It is best to hire a roof repair company located in the area.  Local roofers know the ins and outs of local rules, code regulations and so on. Add in the fact that nearby roofers tend to have good relationships with local suppliers and crews and it is easy to see why most homeowners prefer to give local roofers their business.

4. Trustworthy Roofers Will Not Rush You Into Signing a Contract

Review the entire the contract before signing. The contract should include a written estimate that details any oral promises previously made by the contractor. You deserve an explanation of every portion of the contract, especially if it has vague language.

Elevated Roofing Uses Top-of-the-Line Equipment and Matierals5. The Best Equipment and Materials

At Elevated, we use uses only the best equipment and materials for roofs. We refuse to use low-quality materials as we genuinely care about our customers. Our crew makes use of top-of-the-line products for every project. Our commitment to using the best materials means we stand behind our work.

6. Experience

Consider the roofer’s number of years in business. If the roofer has been serving local property owners for years and the reviews are positive, there is a good chance the contractor is trustworthy. Elevated Roofing fits this description perfectly.  We have been in business for more than two decades for good reason. Our customers are more than satisfied with the quality of our work.

7. Open Lines of Communication

You should be able to pick up the phone and contact your roofer right away. Communication is essential to ensuring your roof repair project is done exactly as you like in a reasonable amount of time. You will undoubtedly have some questions and concerns during this process. If you can’t reach the roofer or receive a response in a reasonable timeframe, the roof repair company is not worth your business.

Why Get An Annual Free Roof Inspection

Posted by: Elevated Roofing   /   Tags: ,   /   Comments Off on Why Get An Annual Free Roof Inspection
How to get free roof inspection services
14
Mar
2019

There are many reasons to get a yearly roof inspection. This is an important review of your roof’s integrity that has the potential to save you thousands of dollars. In fact, many roof inspection services are free. Our roofing contractors are proud to perform such no-cost inspections.

This inspection should be performed either right before or after storm season, and prior to any repairs. Every roof should be inspected least one time each year. After all, some roofing repairs have the potential to take a while to complete. It is best to have all the details provided at the outset of the project, and before potential problem areas get worse.

Why You Should Never pay for Roof Inspection Services

Too many homeowners have fallen into the trap of paying a roofing expert to tell them the roof repair job is not feasible. This is the worst possible outcome. The bottom line is your roofing contractor should be willing to perform the inspection for free in order to earn your business.

Opt for a free roof inspection and you will have absolutely nothing to lose. This roof inspection will provide valuable information about your roof and possible repairs needed. Furthermore, the inspection will give the contractor the chance to get a sense of the type of project in question and begin to develop the best possible approach. This is just as much an opportunity for you to learn about your roof as it is for the roofer to get a sense of the looming repair and prove his or her worth.

Have a Roof Inspection Performed Before the Storms Arrive

Storm season will be here before you know it. There is no better time to have a free roof inspection performed. If you wait too long, there is the potential the roofing contractor will be too busy with other projects to analyze your roof.

Keep in mind roof repairs and roof replacements take some time. If the roofer is overloaded with work due to a string of storms or a particularly strong storm, it will take some time to tend to all requests for inspections. It is better to stay one step ahead and have this important part of your home assessed right away.

Its Easy to Schedule A Free Roof Inspection with Elevated RoofingScheduling Free Roof Inspection Services Should Be Easy

If you are hesitant to have your roof inspected because you are worried about the process, do not fret! It is extremely easy to coordinate a roof inspection. Our roof inspection services team makes this process quite convenient.

Simply give us a call, request a free roof inspection, provide your contact information and state why you are interested in the inspection. Once we have this information, the inspection and possible repair process will go that much smoother. Be specific about your concerns and the roof inspection will prove quick, easy and informative.

What the Free Roof Inspection Entails

Lean on our roofing experts to analyze your roof and we will study it in-depth for problem signs that indicate a repair or replacement is necessary. The roofer will look for missing, curling or blistering shingles, missing or cracked caulk by the flashing, rust spots along the flashing, worn or cracked boots by vent pipes, moss and beyond.

Contact Elevated Roofing to Schedule Your Free Roof Inspection

2018

(Frisco, Texas – August 2018) – A successful year of growth has landed Elevated Roofing on an annual list of the top 100 roofing contractors in the nation.

2018 Top Roofing Contractors | Elevated Roofing

The Frisco company earned the No. 91 spot on the 2018 Top 100 Contractors List compiled by Roofing Contractor Magazine. Rankings are determined by 2017 sales revenue. Elevated Roofing earned $16.5 million last year.

“This is an honor,” said Mike Witte, owner of Elevated Roofing. “We are so grateful to our customers and the trust they have placed in us. Texas weather can be hard on roofs. Our customers depend on our workmanship, honesty and experience, and we never let them down.”

Founded in 2011, Elevated Roofing brings more than 20 years of experience to roof repair, replacement and maintenance. Ninety percent of the company’s work is for residential customers throughout the North Dallas area. They serve numerous commercial clients, as well.

“Going the extra mile for customers is important,” says Witte, “so Elevated Roofing offers free roof inspections.” And, unlike some other roofing companies, the business protects lawns, plants, driveways and walkways by cleaning as they go and using high-powered magnets to pick up nails and other roof-related metal objects.

“Elevated Roofing is a values-based roofing company and we strongly believe in supporting our community,” Witte said. “We are involved in many charitable organizations including Mended Little Hearts of Dallas, Boys and Girls Club of Collin County, Bernie Moore Ministries and Christians United for Israel.

Storm Damage And Residential Roofing – What Texas Homeowners Need To Know

2018

Homeowners in Texas are no strangers to the effects of severe weather. Torrential rainfall, high winds, and even unexpected hail storms cause millions of dollars in property damage each and every year. While any exposed property is at risk, roof damage is by far the most common result of storm related weather events.

As much as we expect our homes to withstand the effects of severe weather, storm damage is simply a fact of life. After any storm, homeowners need to be diligent in their efforts to assess the condition of their roof.

While assessing roof damage might be as simple as a quick perimeter check and a casual inspection from ground level, a more thorough examination will be necessary to ensure that no problem areas have been overlooked. We urge homeowners to stay safe, and rely on roofing professionals to perform these detailed inspections.

Although most roof damage might be immediately evident, some potential issues will be difficult to detect. This is especially true in the case of damage caused by hail storms.

Who to Trust for Commercial Roof Repair

How To Select Your Commercial Roof Repair Contractor | Elevated Roofing
10
Dec
2017

Every commercial roof will eventually require some sort of repair.

It might take years, but even the strongest roof will eventually falter in some way. Anything from harsh weather to poor installation, a lack of maintenance or even the roof design can spur the need for a repair.

Identifying a flaw needing correction is only half the battle; the other half is selecting a commercial roof repair company worth your trust and respect. Let’s take a look at some common commercial roof problems and how to go about selecting the best commercial roof repair company.

Common Commercial Roof Repairs:

Leaks

Roof leaks are more common than most prefer. Any type of roof has the potential to leak. A proactive approach to roof maintenance will decrease the chances of water breaching the premises. Abide by a regular maintenance program and you won’t have to deal with the inconvenience and potential financial burden of a commercial roof leak.

Billowing and Blow-offs

Roofs sometimes experience billowing, tenting or blow-offs. If the roof is not properly connected to the substrate, any of these unfortunate events can occur. Single-ply style roofs are especially vulnerable to billowing and blow-off.

Standing Water

Simple inaction can also create numerous roof problems. The lack of routine roof maintenance is quite common. Have your commercial roof inspected on a regular basis without exception.

A roofing expert will identify trouble spots before they become major issues. This is an opportunity to pinpoint spaces where standing water can occur, slipping flashing and so on.

Standing water is a serious issue, especially if it remains in place for two days or longer. Idle water that has accumulated on the roof can cause roof damage and a subsequent leak.

In the worst case scenario, standing water will cause a roof collapse. This is precisely why you must ally with a proven and skilled roofer who can address drainage issues, perform an in-depth inspection and complete every type of commercial roof repair.

How to Select a Trustworthy Commercial Roof Repair Company

You can only learn so much about local commercial roof repair company by reading about them on the web. Speak with current and former customers to gauge their satisfaction with the roofer’s work. Consider visiting the roofing companies to meet the staff and gauge their professionalism.

Interact with personnel, try to determine if the staff seems customer-focused and gauge whether they truly value your business. Pay attention to the small stuff while you are on-site. This is your chance to get a feel for how the business operates if they are busy, and whether the staff is welcoming.

Look at Past WorkCheck These Points Off When Choosing a Commercial Roof Repair Company! | Elevated Roofing Plano, TX

Do not hesitate to ask to see examples of past work. Examining past projects is your chance to see what your property will soon look like. Check out one or several local projects and compare how they look to those of other roofing contractors.

Does the Roofer pay Attention to Detail?

Try to determine if the roofing company in question minds the subtleties.

Ask for a proposal.

Review this document in-depth. Is it professional looking? Does it contain detailed information, drawings or photographs? If there is little attention to detail in this presentation, the same approach will carry over to the actual project itself. You can also get a sense of the contractor’s attention to detail by analyzing prior work.

Take a close look at the contractor’s current and previous projects to get a sense of how your commercial property will look when the project is complete.

Should I Replace the Roof Before I Sell | Elevated Roofing

Home prices are through the roof, pun intended. If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, take some time to consider the integrity of your roof. Have a professional roofer perform a thorough inspection of your roof before you list the property. This way, you can have the roof cleaned, repaired and possibly replaced before the time comes to put your home up for sale. A home with a recently repaired or replaced roof will fetch a much higher price than a home with a faulty or unsightly roof.

Shift Your Viewpoint to Better Understand the Importance of Roofing Repair

Consider the perspective of a potential home buyer who is looking for a house that he will reside in for at least the next couple decades. You check out a variety of homes and weigh their pros and cons. One of the glaring weak points that particularly sticks out is a faulty roof.

Would you purchase a home with a roof that requires significant roofing repair, a comprehensive cleaning or a full replacement? You might float out an offer but it probably won’t be anywhere near what the seller is asking for. This is exactly why you need to repair or replace your roof before putting your property up for sale. Once your roof is in tip-top shape, you can use this improvement as a powerful selling point. Such a roof repair/replacement might even inspire prospective buyers to get into a bidding war for your home. In the end, the investment in roofing repairs or a brand new roof could end up paying for itself through a much higher selling price.

The Evidence Shows a New Roof Nearly Pays for Itself

Though you might detest the idea of shelling out more than $10,000 for a brand new roof, the statistics show you will get plenty of this money back when you sell your home. Remodeling Magazine reports the addition of a new roof boosts the typical home’s resale value by an average of just under $12,000.

All in all, those who install new roofing will recover nearly 63 percent of the total installation cost. This money is recovered by the corresponding rise in home value. These facts show that new roofing and roofing repairs are more important in the context of return on investment than adding a backup power generator or installing a bathroom.

Roofing Repair Serves as an Important Visual Selling Point

Imagine potential buyers rolling up to your home, getting out of their cars and looking at your property. Their eyes move from the front door to the windows and on up to the roof. If your roof is old, outdated, worn or unsightly, it will make a terrible first impression on prospective buyers. Have your roof cleaned, repaired or replaced and the refreshed appearance will serve as quite the important selling point. This is especially true of architectural-grade asphalt roofs with nuanced color and texture options.

Premium grade asphalt shingles are especially helpful in your quest to boost your home’s marketability as they have warranties lasting upwards of half a century. There are even some types of green roof technologies that have the all-coveted ENERGY STAR rating. Such asphalt roof shingles are engineered to reflect the sun’s blazing hot rays and subsequently decrease cooling costs.

Invest in Roofing Repair to Avoid Drama with the Upcoming Building Inspection

Every house that goes on the market will garner the scrutiny of a professional building appraiser and inspector. Every contemporary home buyer demands such an in-depth analysis of a house before shelling out his hard-earned money for the property.

If your roof is in bad shape, the appraiser and inspectors will take note. They will pass on this information to prospective buyers. As a result, some would-be buyers might put the brakes on the offer they have been preparing. Don’t let this nightmare become your reality! Repair or replace your roof before putting it on the market and you will have one less stumbling block in the way of a potential sale.
