Thanks for the answers guys. I’ll try and answer everyone here.
Chuck, Im very aware that we don’t have 30 or 50 yr roofs in Texas. I even called BS and told the buyer that was for manufacturer warranty and if the roof was installed improperly that won’t be covered. Same for damage physical or chemical. Our insurers down here like to try and make you change the roof way earlier than you have too because of the hot humid temperatures. I generally recommend an windstorm engineer to come out and re-certify if they want.
Joseph, the roof age wasnt 50 yrs but the supposed life expectancy
Douglas, the house does not face towards the gulf. There is a small salt water bay within 10 miles. The actual gulf is 30+ miles away. I live closer and would expect to see this more often than the 3 times I have. Same with the salt in the air.
Russell, the house is about a half mile from NAS Kingsville. Mainly a flight training base for the Navy.
