This is a property in Knoxville Tennessee that is in the process of being rehabbed. Litespeed construction has been called out to investigate and take a look at the roof and gutter issues that are occurring on this old home. As you can see from the video and photos this roof and gutters are in really bad shape.

 

After Completion of Roofing Project:

we installed and IKO shingle. This roof had several boards that we replaced.  This project was completed around 1 November 2020. We are at gutters and facia metal at the eaves to address that issue on this project as well. The gutter colors are white and so is the facia metal.

    No gutters for part of the roofline

    As you can see here there are no gutters on the right side of this home. They have come off and I’ve fallen due to old age and wear. The rest of the gutters are in terrible shape and need to be replaced as well. Litespeed construction is proposing to replace the gutters and the facia medal at the eaves of the roof.
