So we’re here in Coto de Caza, and we’ve been called out to do a professional roof inspection for a client. He had a large re-roofing job done, and um After the re-roofing jobs is done. I’m standing on top of it right now He wanted everything gone over and uh make sure that everything was done correctly. He spent about 20 grand. So we charge $189 to do roof inspections. We go up and provide four page report and take a look at everything help advocate for you Take a look at your contract and make sure that everything was basically done the way you would have wanted to so you can see he’s got quite a Little Roof here lots of little roofing decks here. This is a fairly complicated Roof deck Pretty Steep is the side right over here I’m not walking down that, there’s a side down here. Really nice shingle that they used. This looks like a GAF. I believe this is Grand Sequoia and so going to take a little Careful look at it and help him out. See what see if he got what he paid for When he set up a latter over here, he just kind of walked over here and he had an existing tile roof they tore it off and He didn’t want that they talked about the tiles to throw them away talked him into a new roof and so this is His new roof the first thing I see is this section right here is that You see that looks a little funky. It’s not supposed to line up like that. So it looks like they’ve installed all full shingles, and then a little tiny piece here on the edge And they just repeated this over and over, so if this is a little flap It’s just going to come loose, and it’s just going to blow straight off his roof. He can’t do that Look at that all the way up the roof It’s all wrong so it’s one of these a That’s one problem, it starts there, it’s all the way there so it’s kind of not a good sign plus that’s just really sloppy, so Is strike one? Another thing I notice here is that this appears to be pretty over exposed. That’s a too long basically that distance shingles should be down here or a little bit lower And so there’s another problem Now when you install these roofs or felt like us they call it a sawtooth or dragon tooth or something So that you should never see these key ways. That’s a problem they’re always supposed to be hidden underneath one of these other pieces here, so It’s got a couple key ways that are exposed, you could see I think this is another one. Yeah. He’s got key ways everywhere You’re not supposed to have these. None of these should be exposed which means they didn’t follow the right pattern another one Looks like they did okay on the ridge cap Let’s go see the other side This a ridge cap, looks all good, whoa. What is this? Okay, so, oh it looks like they ran out of ridge cap. They started making their own So that’s not exactly Becky Ridge cap see this is a section of the roof that the homeowner would never get to see so another problem Okay, so here’s the section of the roof what appears like the roof were never even finished here’s the old flashing, this is all the When they put replace flashing is needed how this can happen. This is a real bad job, so what Is this. This? Shingles just kind of laying there, and they’re storing some Coil now. Okay. So that’s really really bad You can just see that that’s not finished. Water is just going to go straight down behind this flashing and Wow Okay, I don’t really know what that is, a giant hump in his roof. I just don’t know. When it’s sloppy workmanship. I think this Customer is gonna be pretty happy he had us out to inspect the roof because he has a final payment pending and So lets look at the chimney here. Looks okay, and then oh what is this? It looks like when they tore off the old tile roof and they use the old tile pan to flash it look at that That’s crazy It’s just all stuck up looks like terrible That’s wrong That is wrong. That’s bad. That’s really really bad. He’s got trash He’s got looks like an old vent like they, cobbled together with a couple of nails at the back of it. That what that is? Sure is. Wow pretty Impressive amount of Shortcuts but um You would be surprised what you’ll find if you have us inspect the roof so Here it is again. They got the wrong Edge metal. That’s totally wrong That’s totally wrong this is actually quite uh This is quite a mess That is totally wrong man these guys are really batting a thousand It’s Incredible how sloppy this install is. Keep in mind, I just saw paper work and this was twenty thousand dollars Looks like a giant hole that they just never bother to waterproof. I’m sure what little rain is a not going to get under here You gotta be kidding me Terrific massively overexposed again another 10 ron done improperly missing last course of shingle, improper Hip and Ridge Cap Shortcut on the Last missing shingle flopping shingles, loose shingles, poorly fashioned shingles. Try tell me this is cotto. That’s just going to blow straight off His whole edge is going to get missing this is all going to have to get redone And if that doesn’t scream sloppy workmanship. I don’t know what does so Missing shingles missing shingles missing shingles. They probably already blew off to be honest with you Yeah, this is definitely Not what he thought he was getting so um He was almost finish up the inspection and give you guys I got to get down to this lower section over here and go check this out and Just so you know would never pay to have us take a look at your roof after everything’s all said and done a Professional roof inspection by Us can save you a ton of money

    This happens in all facets of construction, whether licensed or not. Did you shake hands with a salesman or the boss, and never see him again? Find small companies, with a boss that wears a toolbelt everyday. Call last month's homeowners he worked for. It's hard for most guys to care about your house, at 16-26 dollars an hour. A boss without a toolbelt just cares about the money, not your house. The last person you want to hire is a guy stepping out of a spotless clean truck with fresh clean clothes, that brags about 5 other jobs he has going.

    Why do you use these felt shingles for house roofs in America? We use concrete or slate tiles in the UK and would use felt shingles for a shed. Is it because of tornados that you don't want heavy roofing tiles flying about or just because it's cheaper?

    I'm installing this roofing on a rental I own. It's a tricky install and one needs to pay absolute attention to layout. The roofing is trippy as it looks completely random in one direction and then has a very prominent diagonal pattern just by moving a few feet over. One can immediately tell if the roofer was left or right handed by the pattern direction. If you go off pattern or try ans use up misc pieces in the field, the diagonal lines look like shit. Lots of waste and only 4.5" exposure makes for time consuming work. I like it and receive regular compliments, but wouldn't select it again for difficulty of install. Installing this takes patience and ability to read and precisely follow directions. The flashing here and incompleteness deserves a lawsuit for sure.

    This is why I didn't go with the bid that was "too good to be true." When I noticed the address on estimate was changed to a residential address I figured I would email their main office and let them know that employee was trying to do side job w company letter head. Doing this all the while he knows I need to submit information to my insurance company in order to keep my homeowners insurance once completed. After I sent the email I never heard back from the company…

    I've seen asphalt shingles last 40+ years the old t-locks they used all the time on barns were some off the best shingles made. We use owens corning durations now and them last 25-30+ years as long as the install is done right. The hip will even last the life of the roof also as long as you get the pro-edge hip and not the owen corning supremes. Ice & water in valleys and on bottoms, W- style metal valleys not shingle valleys cause the amount of extra water that runs into a valley will wash shingle away and that will be first place to go.

    Wow he says he has a final payment pending I hope he means that he hasn't paid for that job in full cause all that will have to be tore off and redone. I really hate seeing this happen all that money spent and all the materials wasted, absolutely horrible. I have been roofing, building homes, in the home remodeling trade for 25 years and see this happen so much, people figure nobody can see this from ground and just gotta get paid and that's it. That's why you always get references and google that persons name and or business name. I literally just went to a call 2 days ago and home owner had a leak around chimney area she just had a roof done last year and paid extra for a chimney flashing, well I get on roof and see the flashing she got charged an extra 400 bucks for was plastic roof cement just shmucked around chimney lol. I had to remove all that crap which anyone who knows what roof cement is it stays tar like and is nasty stuff and bent her a real chimney flashing. It only took me around 2 and a half hours and charged her 250 bucks cause I felt bad for her for already paying 400 for shmuck lol. It rained the next day for a long time and of course no leaks. The good thing about hacks is it keeps people who do good work in business .I'm painting her house next spring and also have some fascia, soffit to do there to. So if the guy who worked there did it right I wouldn't of gotten the job.

    O yes-from personal experience you need to have all jobs inspected. But after the city inspects they don't always followup to see if the job was done. My first home and I bought it on my own (a young female) and was ripped off by contractor and realtor in 2000-had 8 major code violations. Sad thing was there was an inspection report but when I followed up on it there was no such company or person named that did the inspection. Lesson learned!

    Too many want to be roofers out here today. They work for a couple months and think they know what they’re doing and try to go off on their own!

    Roofers get away with this because it almost never rains in SoCal. It might be months after the work is done before it rains at all. I'd like to think the homeowner hired cheap, non-licensed, non-permitted, non-insured labor to get results this bad (there's tons of that in SoCal). No decent contractor whose reputation relies on quality (and not price) would allow this to stand.
