It can be frustrating when the closing date is coming up and not sure if the roof will perform as it supposed to. When it comes to a structure of a house or building the most important key players are the roof and the foundation.
If the foundation is in good standing and no moisture marks or leaks it is a good sign. If there are damp sections or visible cracks, it can be a potential problem eventually. I am not sure when the building code has changed about the waterproofing membrane against the foundation walls and whipping tile systems but if your house has water proofing membrane it is a good thing. If there isn’t a waterproofing membrane against the foundation, i would have the foundation walls inspected very closely because it will cost you tens and thousands to have it repaired properly. If there are minor cracks on the inside foundation walls, that can be injected with liquid expanding epoxy and have it fixed.

The roof may look in okay shape from 30 or 40 feet but there may be cracks, lack of underlayment or ventilation, lack of insulation or even shingles that are completely bone dry. An average roof repair can cost you anywhere from 250? and up depending on the roofing company you hire. Cost of replacing a roof is determined by the difficulty level, total square footage and how many valleys and hips. Installing proper ice and water shield and sealing the entire roof with tar/felt paper is a step before installing the actual shingles. It’s not about the name or brand of the product, how it has been prepped and how the shingles has been installed is the most important.
