Roof leak inspection Knoxville, TN.

This home had a roof leak that Litespeed Construction was called out to inspect.  What made this unique was that we were called to inspect the roof by GAF.  Apparently another GAF contract installed and warrantied this roof and went out of business.  Because the roof has a GAF Golden Pledge Warranty, GAF called Litespeed to inspect the roof for possible solutions to the leaks.

What we found is that the leaks were being caused by a bad chimney cap, not by the roof or chimney flashing.  After a thorough roof inspection, Litespeed Construction recommended that the chimney cap be replaced.

GAF Warranty Inspection

  1. Roof Leaking at Chimney

    Roof leak from inside.  So this what the customer noticed and called GAF about.  GAF notified Litespeed Construction that there was a roof leak on a Golden Pledge Warranty, and the contractor who had performed the work is now out of business.  Litespeed came out to look at this problem for GAF.

    The Chimney cap is the reason for this roof leak. Not the shingles or flashing. Proposed a new metal chimney cap.

  2. Only One Nail Pop Found On Inspection

    The nail pops are a huge risk and issue for warranties.

  3. Some Soft Roof Deck Boards

    Roof deck boards are not rotten here, they are just a little soft.  This probably is not an issue for the roof integrity.

    this section of this roof has soft spot, it is not anything that is causing a problem or needs to be repaired
