Had a new construction home today with what appeared to be roll roofing (modified bitumen?) installed over the rounded roof structure of the attic dormers. The installation was such that there was wrinkling in the roof covering material. Discussed this with a roofer who was surprised that Perry homes didn’t use architectural shingles instead. Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks.
That is just hideous.
Too flat for architectural shingles. Very poor design, I’d blame the architect. That roof covering won’t last long IMO.
I’d expect a metal roof on that dormer, with that arch top design.
Ain’t nobody ever gonna see it except a roofer, an inspector, or doofus homeowner hanging christmas lights!.
Never mind the roofing. The dormers themself look Unprofessional.
I see several issues as well. Wrinkling will promote wear and indicates lack of adhesion or fastening right off the bat. Also, in my experience, that material will wear much faster than the shingles, especially in those flat areas. Expect to reroof those dormers soon.
THAT is for sure, Scott!
Myself, I would have a hard time composing a narrative without using the word “Crap”.
Those dormers will leak like a sieve in a Texas rain storm. Too many things wrong in this photo.
The architectural/engineering drawings will typically display what roof coverings will be used. Give your write-up as you see fit and recommend that the Builder display the drawings to show that this roof covering was called for. At that point it is the client’s decision whether to press the Builder or not.
My kids wrap presents better than that.
For @jgoodwin21 you could look at neighboring homes by the same builder/developer to help sharpen your report. NO matter what – that’s crap work a disservice to the buyer.
