About this video:

This commercial inspection training video follows an inspection performed on a built-up roof (sometimes referred to as tar-and-gravel roof) on a retail suite in a large shopping center.

The video discusses many defects and design attributes that are unique to built-up roofing and notes the system’s overall condition, as well as past repairs. It also takes a look at the roof’s main components and features, including its drainage system, flashing details, and roof-penetrating installations.
