Litespeed Construction performed a roof inspection on this home in Knoxville, TN. The roof is between 15-20 years old. There are three spots on the back side of the roof that feel soft and will most likely need to have wood replaced. The current roof has the old style metal ridge vents and also has the wrong shingles on the ridge. Regular dimensional shingles were used as ridge cap.

    Back Side With Some Issues

    The back side of this roof has some soft spots that will need to be addressed when the roof is torn off. It is likely that 2 sheets of OSB will be needed.

    Bad Installation On Ridge

    This home has old-style metal ridge vents. With the installation of a new roof, we will install a new bigger plastic ridge vent that will allow the roof to breathe better. Good ventilation on your roof is key to its longevity of it. This roof also had dimensional shingles used as ridge cap shingles. This is definitely not correct and could be a possibility of leaks.

    Valley With Some Issues

    This valley has had some work done to it. Apparently, there was a leak here, and an attempt was made to repair it with some roofing cement. The new GAF shingles that will be installed on this home will serve as good protection from any leaks to this home.
