You folks may find a similar topic in some other section…or not. Been having trouble posting a topic by being in the Internachi forum or the inspection community. Any suggestions there? LOL!
Anyway, the topic is walking on roofs that you should not walk upon. Clearly, flat concrete tile or Spanish clay tiles are usually not considered walkable. Inspect from a ladder! However, I will inspecting a home soon with roof stated as metal in the MLS listing. Whoever writes those listings are not very knowledgeable on some things. Yes I have seen such roofs that look like clay tile and are metal. Even visited a roofing site that deals in such material. The manufacterer states that the roofing material is walkable. If the roof turns out to be such a material I will still proceed with caution. Anyone have an experience with this material or have any suggestions?
