Hey guys. Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Working on a couple of reports of course this weekend and need some help, direction.
Inspected an attic yesterday with an unusual substance on the rafters. Don’t know what to make of it. Not sure if it’s some sort of mold although it almost looks like old mud. I touched it with my hand and it was very dry and came off. Anyone see anything like this before. Not sure how to write comment in my report on this.
I was a custom-home builder in SE PA for years. I would sometimes get my rafter boards, floor joists, 2x4 studs etc. muddy on the construction site. I also would use boards that were used in framing out the concrete walks or pads. Boards used in forming the concrete footers would often end up as components (joists) in the floor system.
