ROOFING

Roofs are inspected visually and from an area that does not put either the inspector or the roof at risk.  Steep, wet, snow or ice covered roofs are not walked on.  Slate, tile or asbestos roofs are not walked on. 

This roof inspection has been conducted either from the ground or from windows that look out onto roof surfaces.  We caution you that no ladders were used, the roof was not walked on, and that there are sections of the roof that could not be seen in this limited inspection.  Our comments are limited solely to those areas of roofing that can be seen as described herein.
