Inspectors say roof that slid off Concord home wasn't up to code
CONCORD - Building inspectors are warning homeowners as they investigate the Pond Place home where the roof slid off the building, and say the issue is likely to blame on a common construction technique as well as heavy snow.
The roof was built with a raised rafter technique which allowed for more insulation, but doesn't attach the rafter to the wall as it should under building codes.
The house was built by ACA Investments, a company that's no longer in business.
City inspectors have been in touch with one other homeowner who's home was built by ACA and they will be following through to make sure there are no issues.
Half of homes built in the area have been constructed with the same raised rafter technique, said Tedd Evans, Concord's Chief Building Inspector.
If your home was built by ACA or you suspect any issues, call the Code Inspector at 225-8580.
There were no previous complaints against ACA, Evans said.
