This home in Knoxville, TN will be getting a new roof before it is sold. This roof has a 12 pitch on the main house and an 8 pitch on the garage side. The shingles are a bit older and you can see that there are spots with damage on them. The shingles aren’t being held down very well anymore and they can easily be pulled up. When pulled up you can see that some of these nails have rust on them meaning that there has been some water coming through there.

    Most of the shingles on this roof can be easily pulled up. The glue strip on the shingles are no longer holding them down as well. This is extremely important so that water doesn’t get in under the shingles.
