Roof leak in East Amherst

Alto Home Inspection LLC was recently asked to inspect a home in East Amherst, and we wanted to share our knowledge about an issue that we found, why it's a problem and what we would do if it was my house.

Roof leak was found during attic inspection in East Amherst
We found this problem during an inspection of the home’s roof.
We inspected this 1980’s house, and as we conducted the attic inspection we found a large area of mold, which in this scenario is a strong sign of a leaky roof. .
Repairing a roof leak like this one without replacing the entire roof can be tricky. An experienced roofer might be able to identify an area of damage on the roof, and then repair it. Otherwise, large areas of shingles and roof sheathing may require replacement.

We tend to avoid advising our clients about whether they should buy a house or not, but this problem could potentially require at least a partial roof replacement. If funds are tight, then definitely consider the possible expense before it’s too late.
Every roof will eventually leak if it’s not replaced in time. The homeowner probably could have avoided this issue by keeping trees trimmed back from the house, and possibly by investing in higher-quality shingles. For the age of the roof, it showed signs of early failure.

My wife and I went with Alto for our home inspection based on Alto's reviews we saw online. Bradley was very professional. He was on time and very thorough with his inspection. He explained everything he found wrong with the house. We are so glad we went with Alto Home Inspection and we will definitely be using him again.
