Research & Writing Assignment:

I looked at hail damage photos, and learned that asphalt shingle damage cause by hail is from not only the compression force of the impact but also the tension force stretching on the bottom UNSEEN portion of the shingle. This damage is usually identified by the indention and granules knocked lose around the edges.

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

Inspecting this roof and gutter I observe debris from the 3-tab roof in the gutter. I will annotate the debris and make recommendation to the client have a roof professional look further at it because we are in Colorado Springs. I will also annotate if I notice any leaking on the sealing or any other indications of roof issues as I go further into the inspection.

Research & Writing Assignment:

I looked at the three pictures of the chimney and the locations and names of the different flashing. I thought that this was an excellent resource for me to physically see the names and locations of the flashing. I like this kind of helper to get me through the areas that I'm weak in.

Research & Writing Assignment:

A home inspector is required according to InterNachi's standards of practice to inspect flashing at the roof and the exterior. Flashing and kick-out diverters help to prevent water from working its way through your roof and into your home, and redirects water away from the joint and down into the gutters. If not installed or improperly installed water runoff can get inside the wall and cause serious damage.

Research & Writing Assignment:

The roof panel sheathing is what the underlayment, shingles, drip edge, etc are attached to. The sheathing is nailed to the rafters or beams via 8 penny nails or 8 penny nails that are flanged at the bottom for added security in high wind areas such as Florida. Fasteners are spaced six inches apart at the edges and twelve inches along the supports. The nails/fasteners should be driven flush with the sheathing,but not overdriven either. Twenty-four inches is the usual spacing of the rafters or beams. The sheathing should run perpendicular to the rafters.

Research & Writing Assignment:

I chose to research the article on House Numbers. I've seen house numbers on homes but never understood the importance until reading this article. While some areas make it a law and regulation to have a certain size house numbers on your house so law enforcement and firefighters can locate houses quickly. I now understand the importance of house numbers and support any laws and regulations regarding them.
