Newsflash: Repair credits

I am under contract for a house that needs a bit of work. Sellers have already agreed to a 5k closing cost credit. Just had a home inspection and few more things came up that were not disclosed or obvious when i put in an offer. A few of these are roof related and it is unlikely that they could be repaired by closing. My agent suggested asking for an even larger closing cost credit. The problem is that my closing costs will only be like ~2K. Any credit above and beyond that is not really all that helpful in terms of having cash on hand to make repairs.Is there another option aside from a closing costs credit that allows the seller to provide “cash” for repairs? Perhaps some kind of escrow thingy?My loan is conventional with 20% down.
