It’s been a loooooong day. We’ve got 80 degree days way before it should have hit that number & I’m tired (having two little kids can burn you out, too). Up @ 5a & still working here @ near midnight.
Today I did an inspection for a real estate sale & it’s got dimensional over cedar shakes; I estimate the dimensional has about 4 to 6 years of serviceable life left. Accellerated grit loss in select areas, some pock marking (not evidentiary of hail IMO), fiberglass matt is showing through on edges of built up dimensional components & low edge of reveal, etc.
Mentally, I’m toast & been sitting here for about 10 minutes @ a loss for words on how to discuss / explain the problems with cedar & a shingleover (outside of the property buyer either having to re-do the roof themselves & pay this expense -or- if it goes up for sale in, say 3 years, the seller will possibly have to deal with another new buyer being faced with the expense of a re-roof). This is the typical ‘purlins / cedar / shingles on top’ type layover.
FWIW, I do see various ‘trim’ problems here & there but nothing that would lead me to believe the envelope as a whole is in **Danger! Danger! Will Robinson! **of a leak any time soon.
The easiest area to see the cedar under dimensional is in the valleys where the drip edge stops short about 6" of the center line.
Total size in cedar / comp is 24.66 rounded on a 9: to 10:12 with a really large addition done to the back side of the upstairs & this shoots out @ 17.66’ x a ridge line of 52’. This upstairs addition is about a 1Ã‚Â½:12 with what appears to be an old school Firestone type product that is severely cracking on edges but for the most part looks serviceable for a few more years.
Thanks, y’all! :?:
