This picture was taken at an older home with not drainage system installed. Installation of gutters and downspouts is very important in order to divert the rain water away of the house foundation and eliminate moisture problems around the property

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

Attached is an image of a roof that is severely damaged. Inspection of the roof did not indicate obvious hail damage, however, the severity of the condition of the shingles would lead to that conclusion. Additional inspection and research would be required to tell if the damage was product defect or if poor installation was the cause. Either way, the roof need to be completely replaced.

Research & Writing Assignment:

Roof and Drainage System Maintenance and Replacement
When deciding on roof replacement the most common factors in the decision are the age of the roof, if the existing roof was installed over an improper slope, deterioration of the roof, cosmetic defects (which most likely would be covered by manufacturer's warranty), poor or improper installation and storm damage. Any one of these factors or a combination would be a good indication whether or not to have your roof replaced.

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

this is a picture of a tree that fell on a porch flat roof.
the most important thing to keep in mind here, and every inspection, is safety.
the roof is at two story but since the house is built on a hill, the fall is 3 story down.

Research & Writing Assignment:

I learned from the article on the roofing nail diagram that all nails should be properly driven, not over driven, on an angle or under driven. The nails should have a 3/8" nail head for proper grab. This is important to properly hold the shingles

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

The picture included is of a protruding nail through the asphalt roofing material. Due to expansion and contraction, improperly driven nails, or undersized nails, nails can back out of the plywood and protrude through the shingles. These should be properly repaired and sealed to prevent roof leaks.

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

This home was inspected post roof installation. The shingles were an Architectural style laminated shingle. When the shingles were installed the roofer would have removed the old shingles and the moisture barrier to evaluate the deck for damage and ensure that it would hold new fasteners for the shingles. Once the new barrier was installed the roofer could add the starter strips, offset shingles, and then shingle the roof.

Attached is a photo of a 25 year 3 tab shingle per the Haag Roof Gauge. The Haag Gauge is a good tool to determine what a comparable shingle would be to replace a damaged slope/s. This shingle was blown off during a wind storm, non-hurricane.

Research & Writing Assignment:

I read Mastering Roof Inspections, Lesson 1, Accessing the Roof. The number one consideration when accessing the roof is safety. The article stated that the maximum pitch an inspector should walk for a shingle roof is 8/12 for a single story home and 6/12 for a two story home.

Inspection & Writing Assignment:

In this picture was from a inspection I did and from my understanding, (also I need to check for facts) the aggregate that is in the gutter is from hail damage on the house, I am looking for supporting literature that explains further if this is actually caused by the hail.
