Buyers: Signs of Damage in a Home

August 4, 2019

  

It’s so easy to get distracted by the cute barn doors, the recessed lighting, and the shiplap walls – that we miss the water damage on the roof! Luckily, the inspection period is written in the contract to give buyers a chance to hire an inspector to assess the property. However, it’s important to know the signs that something may be wrong before getting too invested in a home. Here are some signs that there may be big problems with a house.

Signs of roof damage:

  • Cupped, curled or warped shingles

  • Lots of shingle granules in the gutters

  • Cracked or broken tiles

  • Missing sections

  • Mismatched roof sections

  • Ceiling stains

  • Sagging roof deck

Signs of foundation damage:

  • Visible cracks in exterior or interior

  • Door jams/doors not shutting

  • Gaps on top of doors when closed

  • Windows not square

  • Wall corners not square

  • Cracks in driveway or sidewalks

  • Drainage not pointing away from the house

  • Large trees with roots close to foundation

Signs of water/mold damage:

  • Water stains on ceilings and walls

  • Cracks around windows

  • Bowed roof

  • Visible mold

  • Musty smell
