WHERE DOES THE RAINWATER GO?
December 12, 2019
Before purchasing your home, look at where the rainwater on the roof will flow. Where does the rainwater go? Does the water push against a wall? These conditions create a vulnerable condition roof for leaks. An ideal roof installation will allow the water to flow in one direction straight off the eave. Look at the streaking and cracked stucco below the front entry wall. Water has entered it. Most newer homes have a fancy design in front to catch your eye. This design is attractive and helps to sell the home. The rear slope of the house is usually "boring" but more reliable.
