Roof inspection in Hobbs, New Mexico. Uncle bob is back in business.
Uncle Bob has returned to the land of enchantment.
At Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad, New Mexico.
There is hardly a day that goes by when I don't get to see the handy work of Uncle Bob.
For those of you that don't know who Uncle Bob is, he is the person in the family that will attempt to fix anything in the home no matter how important it is to have the repair done by a professional.
It seems that every single family of any size has an Uncle Bob in their family.
And it seems he has returned to New Mexico with a vengeance.
I got to inspect a home yesterday that was purchased by the now owner Five years ago.
He did'nt get a home inspection when he bought the home.
And was present at the time of the inspection. He was telling me that there was a lot of issues with the home and he had been repairing then ever since he bought the home.
After I got done inspecting the roof. I asked the owner of the repairs were made or if the roof was replaced.
He said the roof was
replaced about four years ago. I asked what company did the roof
and he said it was him and his buddies.
That explains a lot.
Take a look at this roof that is only Four years old.
The bottom row of the shingles are not properly attached and this one shingle has slipped down befor it could get sealed in place.
Apparently the crew that did the roofing job knew very little about how to roof a home. The transition from the gable section of the home to the flat graveled roof in the rear of the home had not even been addressed.
This is a crucial area that needs immediate attention.
Then we get a good look at the pipe penetrations on the roof.
I think they probably thought it was a very good idea to use metal tape to seal the pipe penetrations.
This will not work. There is a better way to seal the pipe penetrations on the roof. Uncle Bob seems to be back in business in New Mexico.
Have a great day every one.
