Another example of poor roof Installation

June 12, 2014

Poor roofing practices are found all over the greater Portland area.  They are not limited to lower priced homes or to lower income area.  One example of this is a home I inspected in the NW Vancouver area this last week.  The roof is a little bit steep (9-10/12) and is rather large (approximately 4500 square feet). Upon inspection I noted improper nailing, and very poor technique in installing toe boards.  Note the sealed holes every ten feet or so and far too many nails used to secure a flange.  These are just some of the things I noted on the roof.  Full replacement of the roof is likely between $15k-$25k depending on the material used.  Don’t be fooled by the low cost leaders who promise you the world, they likely are going to leave you with a roof like this.  IMG_20140605_131755IMG_20140605_131954 Can you find the tarred portions of the shingles?
