Red Tags are placed on buildings by The City of Houston Department of Public Works and Engineering – Code Enforcement. Red Tags that are not taken care of in time can result in loss of Occupancy Certification, and even having your water or power disconnected.
Real Estate investors typically while conducting due diligence for a potential purchase often have the buildings they are looking to buy thoroughly inspected by an inspector fluent in building codes. Every component of a building including roofing that isn’t up to Code can be used as a valid reason for price reduction as they know that they will have to bring the building up to Code and the associated cost to bring said building up to Code is a reason for discounting the price for the building making roof repair Houston experts liable more than ever.
