Uncle Bob at his finest. Roof inspection and the failings.
On this roof inspection for the buyers of this home. There was a concern for leaks, "Make sure to inspect the roof pipes and venting to see if there are going to be any issues".
After just a minute on the roof I could see there was a lot more than what the concerns of the buyer had.
The first thing was the missing ridge cap. Yep, only about Eight foot of the ridge cap was not even installed.
This metal roof looked like it was installed using left overs from other jobs.
I asked who installed the "NEW ROOFING". The agent said the seller told her they used a local contractor for the installation.
Was his name "Uncle Bob's roofing"? "UH OH" said the Realtor when she heard me say that. She knows who or what Uncle Bob is capable or not capable of.
Taking short cuts.
No, No and another No. Never take short cuts when installing a roof. Take a look at the way the pipe penetrations were left. The contractor has been paid and said the roof was finished. Really?
None of the pipe penetrations on the roof were completed. No boots on the top of the metal roofing sheets.
Coming up short.
There was a number of the roofing panels that came up short.
Notice the panels are short on each side of the ridge cap. There was a lot of issues with this roof.
Remember when hiring a contractor to improve your home.
Always get a "Trust But Verify inspection".
This is why you always get a "Trust But certify Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
