Metal roofs are great, or are they? Install the roof the correct way.
At Desert Sun Home inspections I get to see homes with metal roofs installed by general contractors. The home owners think they are getting a really nice lifetime roof with little or no issues to think of in the long run.
But what about when the job has been completed and the contractor is standing at your front door wanting a check or cash for the what you thought was a completed roof?
Just because it looks good, doe's not mean it is a good roof installation.Get a "Trust but verify inspection".
This will ensure you get what you are ready to pay for.
This home used as an example for the Trust but verify inspection is a classic case of the contractor cutting corners. What started out as a really good looking metal roof installation, ended up with an argument between the seller and the roofer.
Here is a look at the metal roof that was installed.
This metal roof looks like a really nice roof and it is.
But the fact of the venting comes to mind when inspecting this home.
If you look at the shots closely. You will see there is no venting in the roof.
When I was in the attic inspecting this home. I found that there was a ridge beam. This was not cut out for any ventilation for the roof.
When in the attic, the can vents that were once on the home when it had a shingled roof were removed.
But no other venting was installed. No soffit venting and no Ridge venting for the roof to breath and the attic to get air circulation.
This home was a prime example of why you need to get a trust but verify inspection before paying the huge bill for a metal roof.
This is why you always get a "Trust but Verify Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
