During this Building Inspection in Dromana our Building Inspector observed significant movement in the roof line. BIA always inspects the roof exterior & throughout the roof space.
Wave like appearances in roof lines are common and do not always mean the house has major structural problems.
The appearance can be caused by expected settlement in the building structure, shrinking of the roofing timber or poor workmanship upon installation. Once an uneven roof line is spotted, it’s essential for your building inspector to undertake a thorough inspection of the roof frame within the roof space.
This house had major structural faults throughout the roof frame and significant work was required to help even out the roof load throughout. Incorrect load bearing points were also placing added strain on the building’s foundations and costly repairs were required to add support to areas under the house.
