Cary NC home inspection - home inspector finds improper flashing

By
Home Inspector with Clear Choice Home Inspections, Inc

We inspected a brand new house in Cary NC and found a few roofing flaws.  Photo taken by our home inspector shows a junction between a roof and the house siding with a heavy bead of sealer applied.  "Kickout" flashing should have been installed that would direct water away from the house siding.  In its current configuation, once the caulk/sealer deteriorates (and it will), water may travel down the metal roof and go behind the siding.  After that, wood behind the siding can easily become damaged.  Over time, a major repair would be required.  As always, a home inspection (in Cary NC and other areas).  Small details make a difference.  For more info, please visit:  http://clearchoicehi.com/Cary NC home inspection and home inspector

Interesting. This is why we tell ALL of our buyers, even with a NEW Construction home, to get a home inspection.
