When the roof is on the move. Home inspection in Artesia, New Mexico.
They move a lot more than people think they do.
The heating up and cooling off of the home makes the home move. Not to mention when you have a moisture issue that adds to the problems of a home.
Take into account the cracks in the stucco. Common in most cases with the small movement of the home.
But on this home inspected recently there was other forces at work. This homes roof was on the move.
Moisture is the guilty party in this case.
Take a look at the roof and the problems associated with a moisture issue.
Here we have a good look at the facia and the warping of the homes exterior.
This facia has warped to the point it needs to be removed and replaced with new materials.
Leading the way is a moisture issue from the faulty roof above.
You can see why the facia has warped. During the recent rain here the underlayment for the roof had become wet and warped. Thus causing the decking to raise and break the bond of the roofs integrity.
This could end up being a major issue for any buyer if not addressed by the owner.
This is why you always get a home inspection by a certified inspector.
