It might just need a new roof.  Some day.

Don’t worry about this roof.  It rarely rains in Phoenix.

No problem here.  You see, the tarp protects the roof and adds more years to it.  Shields it from the sun.

Those curls on the shingles?  That’s fun and whimsical.  Who wants a boring flat roof?

The Eave of Destruction

February 4th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Wood rot is common in Phoenix due to low humidity and hot temperatures.  Makes exposed wood dry and brittle.  Here are a few eaves & fascia boards that could use replacement.

If not repaired before selling, it will become an issue with some buyers.  A termite inspection report will have a box checked that there is wood rot.  A buyer’s lender might look at the termite report and require the repair.
