Roof Appears Wavy

Article Number

5.2

Condition

ROOF APPEARS WAVY

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Roof sheathing shall be sized and installed in accordance with the Building Code.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials. Two-Year - Ontario Building Code Violations

Action

Roof sheathing not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.

Remarks

Despite the roof being sized and installed in accordance with the Building Code, waviness between framing members may occur. This will not affect the performance of the roof. Frost patterns on a roof can give the appearance of waviness without the condition existing (e.g. frost outline on sheathing joints and over roof framing members).
