Research & Writing Assignment:

I learned about the different types of roofs, what they are called and how each one is framed. The difference between trusses and rafters, and the rules the apply to each. The names of the different components. Also what to look for when they have been damaged or modified.

There are different types of shingles. The most common shingles are the three tab. They consist of four layers. The base, the body or coating, the surface granules, and the self sealing strips. All of these layer help protect water intrusion on to the sheathing.

Research & Writing Assignment:

Gutters improperly discharging on roof. In observing the photo appears there to be water discharging on the roof due to a lack of a end cap on the gutter. Water must flow away from the house after they collect water runoff from the roof. The gutters should carry water at least 5 feet away from the foundation, keeping in mind there should be a downspout every 40 feet. I would recommend this be corrected by a certified specialist.

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

During the inspection I observed that the downspout on the east side of the building is not connected to the drainage system. This is a drainage system defect. A significant section of the downspout is missing. Therefore, it is no longer effectively directing rain water away from the structure. I recommend that this downspout be replaced as soon as possible.
