I went to the Condo’s I have the contract to inspect the 40 roofs…I also found some other tid-bits of information they might be concerned about while I inspected one roof on my way back from this mornings two REO inspections.
Here is the roof of one building, pretty good shape.
Now at the front portion I found Cement Tiles not attached, so I pulled a couple off to see the underlayment…oh oh…just 15lb. torn Felt Paper, they forgot the 30lb.
They will be happy this was discovered, the torn felt is allowing rain to run down the OSB (when it does rain here–::))))
Now at the back of these Condo’s, they have the Heat Pump condensation drains sticking through a scupper and landing on one of the patio roofs below then ponding on the roof, which will destroy the covering (torch-down) shortly…they should be happy about this tid-bit of information also–::))
And I also found by accident because my contract states roof only…BUT, when I looked down at the wood trim above one window I noticed a large gap rain has been getting in the wall…so I knocked on the door and some lady answered, I explained what I was doing and wanted to know if I could look at her front window from inside, she allowed me…I did not see any moisture stains but I think I will run it by the board of directors of the Homeowners Association to IR Scan every window with wood trim above it to see if water has been coming into the Condo’s…
The only window in every building with wood trim at the header is in the front, all the other windows in every building have stucco, except the one…very weird design…but anyway…I think for another $9,779.00 I will ask to scan every window from the interior where there is wood trim warping allowing rain to come in…I’m sure they will go for it, and I will get a free Cam out of the deal—::)))
Here is the Warped Wood Trim above the one window in every building.
And the Condensation Drain Lines terminating through a scupper and dropping onto a rear patio roof.
I think when I show them this one report for “Building #1”; this $12,379.00 ($309.00 per roof) inspection will turn into a $22,558.00 Job----!!!
Gotta love roof inspections “Only” with one window per building Infrared Scanned from the interior (if they go for it, and I bet they will)-----!!!
This builder will not like me…this Condo Communities two year builder warranty----oh oh…$hit will be hitting the fan AGAIN----:lol:
Another builder threatening to sue me----:lol:
