Time for roof maintenance. Home inspection in Artesia, New Mexico.
On this recent home inspection. The roof was an area of concern for the buyer. And good it was a concern. The roof used to have a swamp cooler on it. This is still a real common place for the coolers in this area. but they seem to always run over and cause shingle damages. In this case the cooler had been removed and a split system had been installed. Good news for the buyers, but the roof issues still remain in place.
The roof has Two layers on it. So only repairs can be made to the roof. If the roof was to be replaced then the entire roof would need to be removed and everything replaced. Only Two layers are permitted to be installed at any given time.
The area of concern is on the back of the home. Take a look at hat I found when inspecting this home for the buyers.
This roof has a limited life span. About five to ten years left on this roof. So getting the repairs done is vital for the integrity of the roof.
The attic framing was affected as well.
Another "FUZZY " photo. But you can see the efflorescence on the framing in the attic.
Easy fixes for the buyer or seller depending on the negotiations at closing.
This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
