Litespeed construction is a roofing contractor in Knoxville, TN. We were called out to look at a property with many needs on the exterior of the buildings. The roofs were placed around 8 to 10 years ago, but that was the last main instead apparently occurred here. These properties have soffit facia and gutter needs in a major way. They all also have significant problems with the siding and windows. The windows don’t appear to have been flashed correctly and have loud water and many locations throughout the walls. This can be a major problem because it can cause unforeseen issues with the property. So this inspection began with a roof they should soffit and gutter inspection. Still, I wanted to try and help this customer understand the entire issues that were occurring cause their certainly window and siding issues. Problems with the foundation call are possibly not significant problems but still problems. And there was an engineer in the firm that came out to inspect the foundation of this property and any potential water issues that might have occurred over the years.

    These bricks are just a façade – the blocks below appear to be strong and sound, but it is not totally clear whether or not they are, and this would be on this particular side and the backside of this building.
