Cheryle Fuller on Aug 29, 2015I doubt that this will last long as it does not seem you have much of a pitch to the roof. Anything less than a 4:12 pitch will require a hot mopped roof. Running the roofing over the side of the edge will only let the trim board (fascia) rot the more quickly as water will become trapped behind it. Cut the edge of the roofing product back from the rolled edge, put a piece of metal trim strip shaped like an Ell along the edges, (called a starter edge) then nail the roofing material over it. This starter edge will need to be all around your roof. Tar paper looks black all over. This is rolled roofing, as it is thicker and has gravel adhered to it.
Kala Professional Restoration services on Nov 17, 2015Really nice article you have shared for leaking roof. I appreciate your ideas and tips. The way you have repaired the roof is really inspiring. I will definitely consider for my future plan. Some plants and trees, like weeping willows, have pretty invasive roots. If you’re not careful, they’ll grow right into your sprinkler system, drainage field,pipes, and septic tanks. Plan before you plant to keep roots away from any water lines. You can hire a service to clean your roof, but doing it yourself can save you $100 or more. Plan to clean roof at least twice a year—more often if the roof is directly beneath trees or you live in a region with frequent storms.
