What can you tell from these roof damage photos?


We need to start a library of failed repairs, or stuff found during purchase inspections, that is not correct, in the photo library.

It is virtually impossible to tell what it will cost without the square footage, but guessing about 16-18 squares, 25K could be a bit high, but close, depending on shingle, 100K is ludicrous.

Look on the bright side, at least the home has gutters that hopefully divert the water away from that turn of the century, likely rock foundation. Hopefully the gutters were there before the water was a problem. I'm with the others, looks like a total roof job, and likely some significant roof framing needed on that gable in the pictures.

Actually if you go loock at their other post of the basement, the foundation is Red Brick, not stone rubble.

Yeah, Greg is correct re the foundation. Double wythe Flemish Bond. If that is the same structure as the roof question. I dont know where you got stone rubble for the foundation though, Greg, I think Luke meant field stone. I said rubble in the walls, as this was a common practice before there was fiberglass. Helped with the adobe effect, reduced flame spread, and drafts.

It appears two layers of asphalt shingles on some wood shingles on 1x2 spaced sleepers (original or many years ago). The added patches of various colors don't help... could the problem be that is the weather side with rain blowing under the missing drip-edge flashing that exists farther up that rake? That would saturate the gable perimeter shingles, and explain the patches. Expect new plywood/osb if skip-sheathed to the total cost.

Our "pricing" policy; "How much will it cost?" Asking for price estimates here.

If you notice how the gutters are mounted I would say facia and rafter tails are rotted. That roof is high and steep= $$$

Those are strap hangers, house may have no fascia or angled fascia. Usually they go under the shingles.

So I got a first quote in this today, from a legit roofer. There are two structures on the property, the second being about half the size, also with plenty of roof issues. The full on number he gave me was 29k for:

Complete tear off of front house (pictured in thread), tear off of rear house and its large porch roof, and it's extended flat roof. Reroof all with new decking and GAF roofing, ice dams, etc, I forget the roofing yrs (I think 20/30?), new proper gutters and leaders on both structures. Also included new porch (6' x 22') rafters as all were on way out and replacement of some random rotted wood.

Seemed like a fair price, I would have guessed higher for all of it.

Get a couple more quotes. Seeing how roof needs to be re sheathed. Normally i would say 1/2 inch cdx but go with osb to save some money. I not a big gaf timberline fan. I prefer certainteed landmarks or owens corning duration shingles.

I don't yet own the property so I can't put a tarp on it, and the current owner could care less.

I don't have a signed contract yet so while I want to prevent further damage to something I may own, it's more important to me to not attract more buyers (not that a tarp would help this beast of a project!
