thickest asphalt shingles

How often do you see these? These things were almost 1/4 inch thick. This was a one of a kind California contemporary built out here on the east coast.

Here is the funny thing. Way back when I decided to be a home inspector there were challenging feelings. This house is close by where I live. I remember walking by it and thinking to myself, I wonder what I'll feel like when someone calls me inspect something like that. Well, I inspected it recently. It was a very interesting home.

I guess I got over that hill and I'm looking up the next.

I did one recently and the owner said they were 50 year shingles. However, the ridge shingles did not look as thick and I just mentioned verbally that the ridges may not last as long as the rest of the roof.

Or, we could all be living under bridges, like trolls.

Yeah, we've got one of those guys living under the Aurora bridge here in Seattle (Sorry for the drift, John).

I see those shingles on higher end homes a lot.
