ROOF AND ATTIC

Description of Area: House.

The roof type is shed. The roof was examined from the edge on a ladder.
The roof covering is metal standing seam. Based on visible wear, its age was estimated to be one to three years.
Gutters are installed on the house.
Recent weather has been dry.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Observations and Recommendations

The roof covering appears to be new or nearly new. No significant wear was observed.

Investigate Further There is evidence of a water leak in the attic. There are water stains on the rafter and roof deck next to the gas furnace flue penetration through the roof. The owner should be consulted to determine if the leak has been repaired or if it is still active. It may require reflashing of the flue. This should be a minor repair.
The report is not intended to be conclusive regarding the life span of the roofing system or how long it will remain watertight in the future. The inspection and report are based on visible and apparent conditions at the time of the inspection. Unless rain has fallen just prior to the inspection, it may not be possible to determine if active leakage is occurring. Not all attic areas are readily accessible for inspection. Conclusions made by the inspector do not constitute a warranty, guaranty, or policy of insurance.

The client is advised to ask the seller about the presence of any roof leaks.

Any repairs needed, should be carried out by licensed personnel.

All roofs require periodic maintenance to achieve typical life spans and should be inspected annually. Expect to make minor repairs to any roof.
