Roofs: Costly Repair Items
Hey there, Paul. Let’s talk about costly repair items and specifically possibly the most costly one. We just talked about foundations, and that can be expensive. But there’s others that are potentially more expensive.
You know, in my opinion, I think the roofs are probably the most expensive coming in with the foundation shortly after that and then the heating and air conditioning.
All right. So let’s talk specifically about roof repairs. So most of the time, you know, a lot of people would probably fall into the camp of I’ve never been on my roof at my home. Right. And so I would say most homeowners don’t spend a lot of time up there. So they don’t know the exact condition. They probably would know it if it starts leaking. Right.
That would be no. I mean, you know, water stains on the ceiling. And number one, cause that unless there’s plumbing running across the, you know, the attic.
Yeah. And then right now, a common cause of such problems would be like super extreme heat like we’re experiencing right now. Right? So we have, like 109 degrees that it’s been for a while. That’s not, like, great for the shingles, right? That doesn’t help.
That’s an that’s an honest answer. I can’t I mean, honestly, I can’t really answer that one.
I’ve got a quick pulse cramping up. So but we’re going to we’re going to battle through. I do have a feeling that the heat that that when it hits the roof, it’s not good for the roof because it just bakes the shingles and dries them out and then makes them a little brittle or You know, you don’t want to walk on it when it’s that hot.
You’ve got to be careful what kind of roof you walk on, too. You don’t want to walk on just every roof out there. You want to get up there in the attic and inspect the decking to make sure, no, the decking dropped. And so you don’t fall through when you do walk on the roof.
But then the thing that goes along with the roof repair, right, is I don’t know if I put aside my real estate career and just thought, personally, I don’t know if I know anyone that’s ever paid for their own roof to be replaced. It’s a really weird thing because it seems like it’s always runs into a hail situation and then it’s replaced and you have a deductible.
But I don’t know anyone that’s like, Oh, I just need to replace my roof like right now all of a sudden, and they’re paying out of pocket for it. It’s a weird thing.
I couldn’t imagine it because I mean, that’s that’s a great big expense. I mean, depending on the size of the house, the roof type and what kind of shingles you go with, you’ve got solar on the roof. I mean, the sky’s the limit as far as the roof cost goes.
Have you ever inspected a Tesla roof?
I have not.
You have not. All right. I was just. Just wondering. Yeah. All right. Well, there’s no further questions there.
No, I haven’t even I don’t even inspect solar. That’s you know, that’s something that I require them to have somebody else come at that certified to do that.
I don’t want to give them misinformation on it. All right. I’m not educated enough on that yet, so. Well, let’s hit the hit the bell and we’ll move on.
