Roofing Items:  In the first (1) photos, the roof jack boot has disintegrated and there are exposed nail heads.  This has allowed water to enter into the structure.  (2)  The chimney was finished on the front side, not the back.  There was no spark arrestor or rain cap installed.  There also was not a cricket installed, the water water getting stuck behind the chimney, leaking into the attic.  (3)  The Vent pipe was cut to short.  Snow would cover this blocking the gasses from escaping (4)  The abandoned chimney cap was rusted through.  Rain water was flooding into the attic causing mold and rot.  (5)  Improper step flashing.  The flashing was ran in front of the siding, filled with caulking.  (6) Improper roof to wall flashing  (7)  No edge flashing on the roof.  This has lead to the sheathing starting to rot from rain water splashing back into the roof sheathing at the edge (gutter) side and into the structure.  (8)  The bottom side of the roof sheathing at the edge side is rotting due to no edge flashing
