AbsoluteInspector Posted February 16, 2015 Report Share Posted February 16, 2015 I am a home inspector for about two years now in the Saint Louis area. One thing I have had a very difficult time with while trying to constantly become a better inspector is estimating the age of the roof shingles, and it seems to be one of the most common questions I get. I can obviously tell when shingles are at or near the end of their useful life and I can also tell when they are less than six months old or so but everywhere in the middle is very hard for me to be sure and I often try to guess if my client really wants to know (while also notifying them that I can in no way be certain) but I don't want to have to guess at all. How confident are some of you at estimating the shingle age and how do you do it and how do you express that to your client? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
