Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, so you should be very careful and methodical before signing on the dotted line. To help Greater St. Louis residents in the market to buy their first home, RRSA St. Louis would like to offer the following pieces of important advice:
Get The Home Inspected
If you are about to buy a new home you should schedule a thorough home inspection. Most mortgage companies and banks require certain inspections, such as termite inspections, before they agree to finance. However, RRSA St. Louis offers totally FREE home inspections, including a thorough roof inspection. There are many home inspectors hired by finance entities that do not climb up on roofs. RRSA St. Louis specialized in this very thing, climbing on the roof and doing a thorough inspection searching for problem areas. Even though looking at your roof with the naked eye tells you that things are fine, there are often problems that if addressed early will save you thousands of dollars down the road. A true professional will take pictures and show you exactly what needs to be done, if anything, and explain why.
Check out the Home Improvement Company and Their Reputation
After your new home is inspected, if there are issues that need to be resolved, such as repairs or replacements, make sure to do your research before hiring a home improvement company. In our information age, it only takes a few seconds to type the home improvement company name into Google or other search engine and see their ratings, reviews, affiliations, and other helpful information. This allows you to feel good about the company you decide to hire. Additionally, you should require proof of licensing and insurance. One of the things we are very proud of when it comes to home repair in Greater St. Louis is the stellar reputation we have gained in the area and how many awards, accreditations, and affiliations we have as part of a nationally- backed company.
Understand the Cost Involved and Insurance and/or Finance Options
For the majority of people, owning a home is the biggest investment they will ever make, as it should be. This is where you live your life and raise your family. So when it comes to a major home restoration service, such as roof, gutter, or siding replacement for your home, understanding the cost involved along with what your insurance will pay and whether you want to finance the job shouldn’t be taken lightly.
When we send out one of our professional salespeople, they will handle getting you all of the information you need, they will do the heavy lifting for you. At RRSA St. Louis, we handle the insurance claim in tandem with you, sitting down in the comfort of your home to make sure you understand every aspect of the financial process involved in your roof replacement or other residential home improvement needs.
