Roof and Attic Inspection

I am ready for a “low-pitch roof” attic inspection…

It was worth it – some areas of soffits were blocked with insulation, and more baffles required

For some roofs you do not need to go clime, just look carefully inside this Addition: “homemade” roof trusses really ready to collapse under snow load any minutes

Not every day we can see squirrel nest/nests in the attic…

These plywood roof sheathings need repair ASAP…

…as well as snow (from damaged static roof vent)

Unfortunately partially missing insulation is getting more and more “common” in new homes…

Old skylight is always a “leaking point”…(plus they are poorly insulated in the attic)…

This roof definitely has some ice build-up in wintertime…

1960th home – typical vermiculate in the attic…

“Creative” way of bathroom exhaust vent…

…and dryer exhaust…

This furnace chimney is too close to the roof shingles and the fire ready to start…

Poor ventilation created frost in the attic…

Ponding water on flat roof… same area inside…

The vapour barrier on the wrong side in the attic…condensation, mold and a lot of water damage…

Sellers are very creative in “fixing” roof leak problems

Poor ventilation + blocked soffits = condensation = problem in winter time…

Dead animals and birds are part of the damaged soffits and roof vents problem…

“…Sorry I forgot to tell you that we have a chimney fire last winter…”
