❌Below Are Hidden Issues That Can Stop A Home Sale Dead In It's Tracks!❌
1️⃣ AN OLD ROOF (Needs at least 3-5 years life to show on the 4-Point Home Inspection)
The most common issue we see is older roofs. Depending on the type and shape, most insurance carriers in Florida have age maximums for which they will provide insurance. Typically, if the roof is older than that specified age, then the carrier will not offer insurance on your home.
The roof is the most important part of your home. Without the roof, the structure has the ability to collapse. Also, damaged roofs are more prone to water and mold damage issues. Flat roofs are susceptible to water pooling, which over time typically results in roof leaking.
TYPICAL MAXIMUM ROOF AGES:
2️⃣ Federal Pacific Electric Panel (FPE) (Installed from 1950's-1980's)
3️⃣ Aluminium Wiring (165-1973 Approximately)
4️⃣ Polybutylene Pipes (1978-1995)
5️⃣ Chinese Drywall (2001-2007)
6️⃣ Septic Tank (Only a Septic Tank Inspection Can Determine a Problem - Recommended)
