12/01/2009 Sagged roof inspection over the left side entry to Building 5:
Sagged roo over the left side entry of building 5 was inspected by EURO Construction, Inc. on December 1-st., 2009 by removing ceiling boards from lower section of entry roof. Only minor moisture damage to the fascia board was found during the inspection.
Main reason why roof sag took place, was determined to be poor quality original construction. There is a clear evidence of failed nailing attachement between 2x6 rafters and fascia boards on top and bottom part of the roof.
Large gaps exist between rafter ends and bottom fascia board. No anchoring devices, such as clips, metal angles, were installed at the time of original construction. Unrestricted condition of the main elements of the roof framing, caused movement of the framing parts and resulted in roof sag.
Same condition exist at the top section of the subject roof. Rafters were installed using toe nailing connection to the top fascia board. Due to the dimensional changes in the wood properties over extended period of time, nailed connections have partially failed, resulting in unrestricted movement conditions in the lower roof section.
Existing condition of the roof framing may eventually lead to roof structure collapse from the live load on the roof surface.
