First Mr Red checked the foundation, which was solid and structurally sound, and then he climbed a huge ladder to examine the roof.
"Hmm, it is not looking particularly good up here," said Mr Red to Kinsey, who was standing down on the ground below. "The roof is very old and the shingles need to be taken off and replaced. I think you should come up and take a look."
Kinsey bravely climbed up the very tall ladder.
She could see immediately that Mr Red was right.
"Unfortunately, the shingles used on the main section of the roof are of very poor quality. As you can see, they have not held up over time. I suggest that you go with a good quality shingle and it should last a lifetime," said Mr Red.
The roof was even worse on the back side of the house where more shingles had fallen off.
Looks like a new roof is on the agenda!
At least there was some good news. The tower roof was well constructed and the roofing material was in excellent shape.
