Wet Roof Purlin In Attic

While inspecting the roof structure in the attic you will be looking for wet spots like this.

This is a wet roof Purlin and it means there is a roof leak somewhere.

Try to find a roof leak and repair the roofing before it starts to damage the roof framing and other parts of the house.

If you run into a situation like this, while doing your home inspection, notify the homeowner as soon as possible, as a common courtesy. Sometimes this is the first they will have heard about it.

Always be courteous and kind when inspecting someone else's home.
