I had a 3-family inspection this past week-end where I had “no access” to the flat roof 40 feet up. The Sellers’ had previously removed the decks and roof access hole (at the rear) which left “No access” to this roof today.
I told my Buyers that I had to disclaim the roof due to the situation at hand. My Buyers’ dad immediately grabbed his cell phone and pushed one number. I then overheard him stating, “Hello Charlie, I want you to bring the ladder truck to (address of inspection) right away. We have a roof we need to get access to ASAP”. Five minutes later, a red shiny ladder fire truck showed up (with their emergency lights on) in front of the house that I’m inspecting and they simply raised the ladder for me so I could access the roof.
I was amazed at the speed of this roof inspection. Damn, I’d like to have a fire truck available for me on daily basis.
Here’s the pics…
