What is a Roof Cert?
A Roof Cert is a certification that is issued by a licensed roofing professional stating that the roof of the property in question is in good standing. The industry standard for a roof cert is 5-years. This means the roofing company who issues the cert guarantees that the roof will uphold its function for at least a minimum of 5-years. This guarantee is limited to the function of the roofing system and does not include any defects that occur from mother nature [i.e. Wind and Hail] or are man made in nature.

If you are a buyer and are concerned about the roof of your next potential home, you always have the option yourself to request a Roof Cert from a licensed professional.
