Hello Everyone. I am working on my mock inspections and ran across these shingles on a friends house that I inspected yesterday. It looks like some sort of tar “bleed through”- there are granules underneath. I have seen many shingles in various states but never anything like this.
We had a major hail storm here in San Antonio a few years ago that took out a good portion of roofs. This was a total tear off, (to the sheathing) and is about three years old. I wonder if this is a normal occurrence, a factory defect or if the roofer was cutting costs and used factory defects. He knew the owner would never crawl up on the roof.
Any constructive thoughts would be helpful.
I know I am supposed to have a clever signature but got nothing.
