    Default Flashing do you see anything

    The sub-structure has water stains to the ply-wood backing. 20 feet below. the adjacent interior walls show no water stains. No moisture due to No rain 60 plus days.

    Any ideas. This looks like there should be flashing from behind and over the lower shingles.

    Ron,

    I hate that kind of installation. So many things can go wrong. Architects... Oy!

    I would expect flashings, but you might not see them if the shingles are lapped over them. If you are seeing stains, leaking is likely. I once (maybe more than once) made the wrong assumption and said probably old stains. Needless to say, it did leak at the next rain.

    Note stains and likely leaking and recommend repairs. If the seller says that it has been fixed, the seller should provide documentation. But, you knew that already.

    Was this the one in foreclosure? Doesn't look like a river home.

    Where the round meets the flat of the balconies looks like a great water entry point even if there is flashing under the shingles. Especially at the bottom corner the curve sits positive to the vertical flat balcony essentially creating a shelf for water to collect.
    - Is the bottom of those balconies concrete? Are there drains? If there aren't drains any water accumulation could be weeping over to the wall when the concrete is soaked.

    Thanks for the input. the balcony and upper decking systems are wood construction over steel framing. i do have water stains on the under sides of the soffits.

    I would love to get some rain and go back to do an IR of this building.

    The Flat roofing did look very good for 20 plus years.
