2.8.1 - Asphalt Composition Shingle

A few underdriven- QC

A few fasteners were protruding though the overlying shingles. This is typically caused when an installer uses a pneumatic nail gun with air pressure too low, leaving fasteners protruding. Correction will require breaking the bond of the adhesive strips of any affected shingles. Because adhesive strips are the single most important component in the wind resistance of asphalt shingles, any shingles that have the bonds broken for fastener correction will need to be hand sealed. Weather must be warm enough for proper application. The Inspector recommends by a qualified contractor.

Over time, this may result in damage to the fan bearings and a shortened fan lifespan, or it may result in movement of the compressor housing which can stress the refrigerant lines resulting in damage and expensive service. The Inspector recommends that the compressor housing be leveled by a qualified HVAC contractor.
