Really doesn't get much easier than this

60 yr old home with 2 layers of comp shingles installed. I pulled up to the inspection site and this is what was going on. A contractor/roofing "specialist", at least that's what his truck said, had his day helper pressure washing the shingles to remove the moss. The helper stated that the contractor had gone to the big box store to purchase a bundle of shingles so they could fix some areas. These pics are after the "repairs and cleaning". It was just the opening clue as to how the rest of the inspection was going to go.

A realtor asked me the other day what I thought of the practice of pressure-washing roofs. I responded that I wished they'd issue us home inspectors hunting licenses every fall and allow us to bag a 2-head maximum of guys pressure-washing roofs. She chuckled until I said the only downside to it would be the work involved with dragging the carcass out to the curb, pulling off a boot and then yellow tagging a toe for pickup by the local refuse company.

I guess she thought I was serious 'cuz she got really, really quiet after that.

Once again, O'Handley fails to be politically astute.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

I may have to quit writing up that I think improperly installed flashing at windows is the cause of leaking windows. My neighbor hired some painting contractors to clean and paint his house. I was in my back yard this weekend watching them pressure wash from about 6" away, and they were aiming the pressure washer upwards........
