A roof certification is generally requested during real estate transactions. Buyers may request that the roof of the property they are purchasing is certified. A roof certification is a statement of opinion by a licensed roofing contractor who considers the roof’s life expectancy. A roof certification guarantees the condition of the roofing system and the condition of the roofing materials (underlayment, shingles and shingle accessories). At Academy Roofing we offer 2 and 5 year roofing certifications. In order to qualify for certification, a roof must first be inspected.
A thorough roof inspection is carried out to assess the rooftop’s current condition and uncover any deficiencies. If the roof does not require repairs, we will then estimate the remaining years of life for the roof and certify its inspection. In the event that any roof repairs are needed, they must be satisfied before a certification can be issued.
