This week I came across 2 newly constructed homes with what appeared to be possible mold growth on the attic roof trusses. I did not see any signs of roof leaks and my moisture meter indicated that the roof trusses were dry. Is this possible mold caused from the roof trusses being stored on-site in wet conditions prior to installation? Are many of you guys coming across this situation with newer homes? How do you write it up in the report?
My comment in the report stated:
“Observed what appeared to be fungus along the attic roof trusses. Moisture meter did not indicate moisture at this location during the inspection process. Area should be evaluated and properly cleaned by a qualified mold remediation contractor. Mold testing was not performed to identify the mold type. Problem noted inside attic above pull-down stairs.”
Thanks for any feedback!
