I have avoided the Citizen’s roof inspections mainly as it was a dollar I have decided not to chase. Having said that, a friend of mine with an older metal roof double-wide just found out that my license will also allow me to do Citizen’s roof inspections. So as you might have surmised he has been begging me to do his for him, not because he wants to save money and thinks I will do it for nothing, but because he is afraid of the dropped policy bogeyman that might show up from Citizen’s if he uses a complete stranger. Today he stuck his Citizen’s single page form into my car as it sat unattended, so I guess I am stuck with two things I didnt ever want to do, a Citizen’s roof inspection and an inspection of any kind for a friend.
What do you folks do about the questions that are just impossible to answer realistically, such as history (when there is none) and guesstimates on longevity for a metal roof that has been recently coated with some unknown roof coating and no real way to determine the shape of the metal. Not a standing seam I’m guessing it is original and this house was probably built in the 70’s. The only positive thing I can see and answer honestly is that the interior ceilings are not freshly painted and have absolutely no water stain evidence anywhere?
Any and all comments are solicited, thanks.
