Guess what, one of the backhoe operators took one with his phone.

Bad wood above guttering

Just wanted to say thank you for all the helpful responses. The picture is of the worst piece, it is exposed more than other areas of the house. But am unable to hire a contractor so will be doing this ourselves. The gutter for each segment of the house is seamless with rivets at the corners so am looking at taking that down to get to the facia. In other areas of the facia the guttering is much closer to the flashing so nowhere near the damage. Not sure if the gutters dropped down or if this was intentional. I am not sure if the guttering can be salvaged once taken down.

As far as the roof, I was told that it had 3 layers by the home inspector and when time to replace it would all have to come off. Unfortunately I am not able to tackle this right now. I truly appreciated all the considerate responses and insights to this project.

This forum is pretty awesome
Thanks again!!

Your "Inspector" is wrong, unless you have some very weird building codes where you live. Its 2 and off, not 3 and off. I would check with your local building department, and hold this inspector responsible if he/she is wrong. If you knew this going in you could have gotten an adjustment in the cost of your house. There is something very strange going on, as the roofer that did this should have known better. Is this a flipped house with the realtor recommending the inspector????
