Metal tile roof damage, in Ashgrove, a Northern suburb of Brisbane,

Metal tile roof damage. Identified by Peter Weddell, owner/operator of Qld Home Buyers Inspection Service and Queensland Building Inspection Service, QBIS

A roof with extensive surface deterioration, possibly caused by damage from hail over the years.

Damage to metal tile roof

Some caused by age and possibly due to hail damage. Although this is a common problem with this type of roof cladding,  you would surely want to know about it.

Without roof exterior access and photos you would not know until after taking possession of the property, then it becomes your problem and at your expense, to replace!

The roof could not be seen from ground level, nor could it have been assessed from the roof interior, as some inspectors claim they can!

Some information that may be of use.
