I am doing my first inspection tomorrow of a home with a metal roof and was hoping to get a little guidance before going. Luckily, I get to do the exterior tomorrow and the interior on Monday when the current renters move out (it is a 4-plex). Besides the obvious like nail-pops, rusting etc. what is there to look at with respect to a metal roof? Are there any web sites out there that explain more about defects in metal roofing, or how to tell its age, life expectancy, proper flashing techniques etc.? Any help would be appreciated. After the inspection tomorrow I will post a picture of the roof for more feedback.
