as you can see the roofing surface dissapears, i attributed it to a clipping affect, but i was able to solve the same issue i was having with other surfaces by giving them a thickness before importing. not sure if that helps

if you have a face lumion only can view one side of it.
if i remember correct lumion does not handle double sided faces.
so giving thickness to faces will make them visible from both sides

It handles double sided meshes. 
You just have to double the vert count to make it happen.   :D   :-D
