Charlotte Home Inspector Finds bad Rafter

November 19th, 2011 · No Comments


Charlotte Home Inspector Chip Sprague of Home Inspection Carolina found a bad rafter on a recent home inspection where the tin roof had been leaking for awhile.  The nail hole in the tin roof caused the leak that caused the moisture to come in and get to to the rafter.  If you have a tin roof all of the nail holes should be sealed to prevent water penetration which leads to wood rot and deteriation of the rafter.  This will now have to be sealed and the wood will have to be replaced.
