When you get a new home you assume that certain installations are performed to some standard of professionalism.
On a recent residential home inspection of a new home I had come across some issues of a "less than professional" installation of the roofing material.
First it started with the lower intersecting ridge shingles being installed backwards so that the main drainage plane will run into and most likely under the ridge shingles. They should of started at the ridge end and worked towards the main roof field. The prevailing winds come from the opposite side of the home (we won't even talk about the cut shingle).
Next I was not impressed on how the reveal/exposure of the main ridge shingles was performed. When performing an installation of the shingle professional roofers will use a certain reveal and maintain that reveal throughout the installation. Too much reveal makes the shingles more prone to wind damage (nice spillage).
The final issue and the most egregious was that there was no roofing felt under the gable end section of the roof. This mean that the roof covering will need to be removed and the felt installed as it should have been prior to re-installing the roof covering.
By finding these issues early in the process the builder will have them corrected.
Hiring a quality professional home inspection should be on every home buyers list when deciding to buy a home. The home inspection process should not be taken lightly and just like hiring any contractor you should interview several home inspectors. You should be assured that your inspector will take the necessary time to properly inspect the property you are interested in and present you with a detailed report on the findings.
