1.0ROOFING #1
(1) See section 2.0 as this condition is also affecting the parapet wall transition roofing material, which can lead to water penetration behind the roofing/flashing materials. Also, the built-up/gravel covered roofing material is showings signs of more advanced weathering with multiple areas of patching (e.g. around the cooler) and a few areas of blistering where the roof is flexible. Tears and areas of advanced wear are also present at the rolled roofing installed over the center parapet walls. The remaining service life of this roofing material is quite limited. Recommend evaluation by a qualified roofer to determine the full extent of damage and all repair/replacement needs to help avoid water penetration concerns.
(2) Note: Due to the design and installation of various roofing materials, no inspection to determine adequacy or professionalism of the installation can be made and is beyond the scope of this inspection. If any of these concerns exist, they should be followed up with a licensed roofer.
1.3CHIMNEY #1
Note: The inner flue was not inspected due to secured spark arrestor cap.
1.7EXPOSED FLASHING
See section 1.0 above. There are also one or two areas where some nails were used to secure the transition roofing material and these have since loosened and backed out. Some gapping is also present around the chimney flue flashing. Recommend repairs/maintenance for these conditions as needed to help avoid possible water penetration concerns.
