I did a wind mit today, for a client I did a home inspection for a couple of weeks ago. He bought the home and had a new roof installed, it was done and he wanted the credits from his insurance company.
I spent 1.5 hours trying to find some evidence of re-nailing the roof deck. He had 6d nails(original) and I could not find one shiner, side-splitter or any evidence of re-nailing. The spacing(using MT6) was mostly 6 inches but ranged from 3-12 inches. Most spacing was about 8 inches.
The roofer swears he re-nailed(he did not take pictures) and it was inspected twice by the city(final and in progress). The homeowner wants his discount.
I told the homeowner, if the roofer decides to pull shingles and SWR to prove it I would like to be there when he does(LOL).
We will see where this goes. :twisted:
Looks like the roofer did not get this memo:
The specifics of the nailing requirements are contained in Section 201.1. If the existing roof decking is fastened with either staples or 6D nails, the entire roof deck will need to be re-nailed with 8D round head ring shank nails spaced no greater than 6 inches on center. If the existing roof decking is fastened with 8D round head ring shank nails spaced no greater than 6 inches on center, no additional nailing will be required. If the existing roof decking is fastened with 8D clipped head or round head nails, supplemental 8D round head ring shank nails will have to be added…
