man you have no i idea the number of problems we have had around here with those shingles around here

Posted by Eric Reid (Renaissance Realty Group of Keller Williams Atlanta Partners) about 11 years ago

Jay - I've installed a few shingles; do you think I'm protected?

Posted by John Mulkey, Housing Guru (TheHousingGuru.com) about 11 years ago

Too funny, keep us laughing...Thanks

Posted by michelangelo vasco (mvp realty inc.) about 11 years ago

Eric - I was hoping that by going outside in a high wind it would simply blow off.  But no...

Not without the shots John.

Michelangelo - You are welcome!

Too funny. Maybe that shot will help. Thanks for the entertainment.

Harry - I am not a doctor and don't play one on AR...

Wendy - it's my last hope.

Carla - let's just say that a band aid doesn't cover it.

Thanks for sharing your post with me today. I wish you the best this weekend.

Posted by Eric Villaverde (DoubleTree Home Inspection Services L.L.C.) about 11 years ago

Patricia - don't wait as long as I.

Eric - we are all in this together!

Jay - It looks like you got there to late. It looks like you have a bad case of them.

Posted by Robert Schwabe, Orange Park Real Estate (EXP Realty) about 11 years ago

If you have Architect Grade Shingles---is that better?

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 11 years ago

Didn't know there was such a thing as shingles shots.

Posted by Bob & Carolin Benjamin, East Phoenix Arizona Homes (Benjamin Realty LLC) about 11 years ago

Robert - I may have waited too long.

Shadow - not better!  They last longer.

Bob and Carolin - there are and you should not procrastinate!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Worst case I've ever seen. It's too late for the shots, you need medical attention!

Posted by James Quarello, Connecticut Home Inspector (JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC) about 11 years ago

James - I am told that fortunately they are regular shingles and not architectural.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Good thing they aren't those really thick 50 year shingles----hard to get rid of them with anything, and you can't even cover them up:)

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 11 years ago

Charlie - about the only thing that covers the 50 year shingles are more 50 year shingles.  Ouch!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Jay, as a medical professional, I have to tell you that there is only one hope for you---a shinglectomy. I'm sorry to say, that it will leave  disfiguring scar.

Posted by Susan Gonzalez Faux painting murals atlanta (Marietta Mural & Decorative Design) about 11 years ago

Susan - can that reverse the adashingleontome instead of complete removal?

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Jay: I will have to consult a specialist for the answer to that. My suggestion is the wonderful Dr Roofus Overhead.

Posted by Susan Gonzalez Faux painting murals atlanta (Marietta Mural & Decorative Design) about 11 years ago

My particular shingle, Susan, is the very common composite fiberglass asphalt.  I hope he specializes in that type.  Some doctors are so specilized nowadays and pay more attention to plastic, clay and even cement asbestos shingles.  Even the architectural shingles are so common now that most doctors don't want to deal with them - not enough money in it. 

Specialists!  What do you do?

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Jay, can I recommend an EPDM overlay?  I also recommend no scratching----and ONLY pressure wash if you absolutely must!

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 11 years ago

Charlie - I tell people not to pressure wash anything except perhaps their concrete driveway.  And even then only if there is no spalling.  I have tried overlaying extra clothing, but that only hides the problem, it does not solve it. 

Scratching, by the way, is a must.

Maybe if I painted it flesh tone?

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) about 11 years ago

Jay, I really do think that pressure washing squirrels is totally fine.  Flesh tone EPDM----good way to go.

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) about 11 years ago

Shadow - hadn't thought about the squirrels, and I think you are right!  Thanks for the flesh tone back up...
