What's wrong in this picture?
After taking a look at the beam, rafters, and r-paneled roof I was baffled by everything that I saw that could go wrong in trying to make such a repair. First, the roofing structure could cave in at any given time, of course with the right amount of weight or force. I immediately realized I could not repair this roof without tearing down the entire structure. Surprisingly, the gentleman had told me that two different roofing companies had given him estimates to make repairs. One of the roofing contractors even insisted on applying osb or decking to support the r-panel. I asked him if I could take a look at the other estimate and he showed it to me. I looked over the estimate and didn't see anything about repairing the structure so that it could support the weight of the roof. My response to him was "call the roofing police!!!", not really but the idea sounded good after speaking to a colleague of mine in the roofing industry. Unfortunately, I don't know of any roofing police. However, I made a business decision not to give him an estimate on any repairs on the building. The business integrity of Silver Fox Roofing & Remodeling, LLC is far more important than just making an extra buck or two.
