Certify the Roof to Help Sell the Home
Have your client obtain a LeakFREE® Roof Certification from Cert-A-Roof to help with negotiations while relieving both you and your client from disclosure risk. Did you know that roof leaks are the number one source of claims against home inspection reports and that the consequential damages can cost thousands of dollars?
If you are worried that the age or appearance of the roof might put off potential buyers or complicate negotiations, certifying the roof can really help. It’s sure a lot cheaper than recovering the roof.
Our LeakFREE Roof Certification is a binding, transferrable service agreement providing potential buyers with professional assurance that the roof will do its job for at least two more years. Before the roof can be certified, it must pass our proprietary rooftop inspection process. In the event that the roof fails to meet the criteria to pass the inspection, we will discuss our findings and necessary repairs providing a detailed report including digital photographs. Your client – or the buyer – will have all the information they need to move forward. The easiest thing to do, of course, is to have Cert-A-Roof perform the repairs and issue the certificate.
If you think the home inspection has this covered, think again. In order to avoid claims against their E&O coverage, most home inspectors include language in their reports deferring the opinion on the roof via a recommendation to bring in a roofing professional. When the home inspector excludes the roof, the disclosure liability falls back on the seller and you – the listing agent.
Call us now to qualify for a LeakFREE Certification.
Don’t wait another day without protection and peace-of-mind!

Quality unfiltered reviews by our customers. 5.0 out of 5 stars. Highly recommend Cert-A-Roof
“On time, worked in a very clean fashion, courteous, and diagnosed the problem expediently. Would highly recommend!” – Amy B., Yorba Linda, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
“Paul and his crew did a great job with our roof. We had dry rot and termite damage on a considerable amount of our facia and eaves. We had Paul and his crew remove our tile roof, replace the wood, and re-paper. His crew was on time every day and worked full days completing the job on time. They were very careful and kept the job site clean. They also took care of some small details that we wanted addressed. Communication was good and the cost was competitive. I would definitely recommend them to one of my friends.” – Berg B., Yorba Linda, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
“Paul showed up on time for an inspection, and he was very kind. He explained all the issues, showed pictures, and he was very patient when he was answering our questions. They have sent the report at promised time. Great service at all. Definitely will work with him again.” – Adam A., Pasadena, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
“Paul was exceptional. We are in escrow and very few companies are willing to inspect and certify a roof on a home that is in escrow (liability reasons). Paul was extremely professional, responsive, and knowledgable about roofing. Most importantly, he is honest. He will tell you what the roof needs, how much he would charge to do the work, but also that you might be able to shop it around for better pricing. But going with Cert A Roof may just be worth slightly higher pricing because they have been in the roofing business for more than just one generation. They really know their stuff and would do quality work that lasts. They follow the regulations and legal codes strictly and don’t cut corners. For roofing work, it’s not worth the risk of hiring someone who may cut corners.” – Sp H., Irvine, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
“Our roof was re-felt a few months ago and we were impressed by the quality of the work performed. I was also impressed by their cleanliness after the work was performed each day, compared to other contractors hired to do other work to our home. Throughout the 7-8 days it took to complete the job, I was able to communicate with the foreman as well as Paul to confirm, change, or add new work to the current job, and they never seemed bothered nor rushed. I am confident our roof will be leak free for many years to come due to the quality of their work. Thanks guys!” – Alex R., Chino, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
“Bill Hogue was great! Very thorough with a roof inspection and explained all the issues and itemized what needed to be fixed. Made me more confident in my house purchase knowing why the items are we needed to address along with their costs.” – Ben A., El Segundo, Los Angeles, CA Rating: 5 out of 5
