Default Advanced Residential Roof Inspection Course

This thread is dedicated exclusively for those students currently enrolled in InterNACHI's free, online Advanced Residential Roof Inspection Course.

After successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • perform an inspection of a residential roof system;
  • inspect various types of roof covering materials;
  • verify the installation of the roof covering and underlayment follows common building practices or the general recommendations of most roof covering manufacturers; and
  • confirm that the installation of the roof covering is such that water intrusion will be prevented.
And, in keeping with InterNACHI's commitment to Continuing Education, this course is open and free to all members, and can be taken again and again, without limit.

Students are free to pose questions and comments here and join in the conversation with other students. The thread will be monitored by the course instructor.

Contact: Director of Education, Ben Gromicko ben@internachi.org

Thank you.

On the article of 10 easy ways to save energy in your home the thing that stood out the most was that in most homes that you could save 2% of your heating bill for every degree you turn your thermostat down for an 8 hour period each day. That could add up to significant savings.

The flashings on this stone chimney are constructed of copper step flashing, counter flashing, head flashing, and apron flashing. The counter flashing is cut into the stone and sealed and the head and apron flashing are properly installed under and above the shingles. The visible parts on the flashings appear to be professionally installed.

This is a barrel tile roof built in 1911 in Florida, it is a Historic building an has been well maintained an has had any gaps sealed and mortared. There is appropriate flashing at roof changes and it is located on property that is next to salt water, so it appears that appropriate measures have been taken to preserve the roof!

I, as and inspector for over eight years and having personally done over 1500 inspections, find missing anti-tip devises one of the most common if not the most neglected item on my inspection. Studies showing that only 5% of the stoves purchased from Sears had these devises installed was no suprize to me!
