First question from my mock inspection. The two pictures are two different ends of the same gable. The roof had been installed within the last 12 months.
I wanted to call out the cut off gutter as a defect. The water will now run down the slope of the roof, potentially causing ice dams in winter. On the other sode of the house, the installers used a downspout which placed the exit just a few inches above the main gutter. Are these just two different solutions to the same issue on a house, or am I right in calling the cutout a defect?
I would add too, that the cut out spills directly on to wood, which although (mostly) treated for moisture is not a fix-all.
