A home in northeast Philadelphia was destroyed by a roof coating that tore off a roof over its entire foundation.
It happened Monday morning when the homeowner, a man in his 40s, and his son were inside their home when they heard the roof chattering.
It was a real mess. “
When the roof came off, the entire house was gone.
It was a real mess.
It just ripped up a whole lot of the roof.”
According to police, the homeowner has not been charged.
Neighbor Charles Miller said he thought his house was “gone.”
“I heard a cracking noise and I went outside and looked at the roof,” he told CBS.
“I could see the whole house was missing.”
“They have a really good roof, so you wouldn’t think that you could do something like that,” neighbor Susan Pizzano told CBS Philly.
The roof coating was a paint job on a house that was previously painted white.CBS Philly reports the homeowner is cooperating with investigators and is looking for any other possible victims.
