Flat roof removal and repair.


I have a 10x50 ft flat roof that has major wood rot in about 20% of the total area. There are some standing water areas also. Not exactly sure of the type of existing roofing. Roof deck is T&G. If I decide to remove all of the existing roofing how would one accomplish that. It was heated down I would think and therefore could be difficult to remove. Any suggestions for a DIYer.

Eww, that's nasty.

Hopefully your roof was done properly and has a nailed base. That is a 40mil sheet nailed to the substrate with simplex. Then the actual roofing is torched/mopped to the base. If so it isn't difficult to take off. Spud shovels and some sharp blades. Just get under the base and start popping it up. If they adhered it to the deck it's usually a real *****.

Concider having the roof redone so it's no longer a flat roof.
It really should have been done that way in the first place.

Sloped ISO always works nicely if you can make it work.

In my opinion you should remove your roof completely and build the new one. This roof is already in a very critical situation and repairing it is not a feasible solution. You can also consult a good roofing company and discuss with it your roof constructor, They will provide you much better solution..
