SCOPE OF ROOF GUARANTEE
The 24-month Roof Guarantee Against Leaks covers leak repairs for up to a maximum of $500 in aggregate. Any payments for repairs made under the guarantee cannot be combined with the 90-Day Guarantee. If the inspection report called for further evaluation of the roof by a licensed roof contractor, and no licensed roof contractor evaluated the roof prior to the end of your contingency period, the roof guarantee is void. Valid only when the roof inspection was part of the whole home inspection.
This guarantee covers leaks only. Defects that were reported or in an aerial or pole camera roof inspection report are excluded. If the report identifies the roof as worn, beyond its life expectancy, or in need of replacement, this guarantee is void and no repair coverage will be provided.
The client must notify us via email prior to making any repairs. If repairs are made without notifying us first, the guarantee is void. We will not reimburse for repairs performed without prior approval. We reserve the right to verify that the item was observable, should have been included in the inspection report, was within the scope of the home inspection, and we have an opportunity to have a contractor of our choice perform the repair.
