Rusted roofs around Brisbane. These photos show how important it is to employ someone trusted to check the roof exterior.
Importance of roof access:
This rusted roof that could not be identified from the ground level or from the roof interior. These photos tell the story!
More rusted roof sheeting.
This combination of zincalume and galvanised roof sheeting will cause corrosion between two different types of materials.
Here is two examples of what some unscrupulous sellers are willing to do for a sale!
Rusted roofs around Brisbane
- The prospective buyer’s thought the roof sheeting (in both cases) from ground level had been replaced.
- Closeup photos included in the inspection report showed paint applied to cover the rusted roof sheeting. Exposed!
- The buyer proceeded with the purchase at a reduced price for compensation of the rusted roof sheeting they were not aware of before signing the contract.
This is why it is preferable to have your inspections carried out before signing a contract and agreeing upon the purchase price.
Most agents will not allow you to do this!
