You know you have a roofing issue when the roof has “caved-in”. That’s what I saw today in Vancouver. Now this just didn’t happen over night either. This has been progressing for a couple years. There has to have been some clues about what was going on overhead. When not heeded, the costs can mount.
Preventative maintenance might have nipped this in the bud.
It is what it is. Now the gutter and drains are the most critical areas of the roof because that’s where all the water goes. Our new torch on membrane systems recognize this requirement and spec additional layers of membrane along the gutter edges. It only makes sense. My sense is that this home owner will have that soon enough.
