Upon observation the roof, we noticed that it was dry and relatively clean. The roof appears to have positive drainage to the 4 scuppers located in each of the corners.

Just started my " general roof inspection" course

Taking this course

I did my roof inspection and found some missing shingles, no Ridge cap(but the interior was cut for it) it was shingled over. As well as some minor abrasions where the tree branches were rubbing.

typical truss roof on addition with an over frame onto original house.

Here is an example of wood in contact with the roof surface as well as accumulation of debris which will hold moisture in contact with the wood siding and roofing material. This and the lack of guttering and downspouts were mentioned in the report along with the need to repair the chimney rain cap which showed cracking.


We have an improperly installed flashing boot. The installer failed to lap the roofing materials over the boot flange, leaving exposed edges. This failure makes the penetration susceptible to moisture penetration and premature wearing of surrounding materials.

Good morning this is David from Harris home inspections The attached picture is of a new roof however the tree lambs are close to the roof and should be cut back if not this could cause an early roof failure by debris laying on top of the roof and overhanging tree limbs being too close to the chimney that may cause a fire

The second requirement requires inspection of the roof I did this from the ground level the roof is new all the flashings and place the vent pipes are properly booted the only issues I see is the tree limbs little too close to the fireplace and the roof in the debris that may fall on the roof from the tree

Roof showed signs of sagging around roof stack. This turned out to be a vent pipe for a reznor heater that was not only flashed incorrectly, but failed to maintain a proper clearance from combustible materials

Great course!
