Why could it be a potential problem to try to sell or buy a house with T-Lock shingles?
In this post we’re going to discuss some of the complications could be for a homeowner who is trying to sell a home that has T-lock shingles on their roof.
T-lock shingles (seen in the video) have been obsolete for about 10 years now. As a result, it’s very difficult to just do a repair if you have some missing or damaged shingles.
This creates a potential problem for the buyers of your home. They may not be able to get adequate insurance, or any insurance at all, if there are repair issues with the shingles.
Almost all major insurance companies have new policies that are more restrictive for T-lock shingles. This translates into the homeowner carrying much more liability for the cost of repairs or replacements than for other shingle types.
When you list your home, it would be best to have a licensed and insured roofing contractor inspect your roof for any damage. Then you will be aware of what obstacles may present themselves as you begin to get offers on your home. It’s better to be prepared for any objections before they occur as a result of the buyer’s home inspection report.
