I just registered and already have a question


Hi, brand new to the forum with a question. I have a flat roof over my pation in Arizona. I noticed not to long ago a stain on the ceiling. when I finally got around to check it out, I found a small divit in the rolled roofing. the substrate is a bit rotted in the area underneath. I have no issue patching that. But what is the best way to handle the roofing? what do I use to adhere the roofing to the roof? Should the patch go all the way to the flashing where it meets the house. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I appologize for asking so many questions in my first post, but I gotta get this done as my house is going on the market in a few days

Thanks

I can only recommend tearing roof off ,replacing rot and re-roofing.I mean how big could your patio be?Is it actual rolled roofing?Is it torch-on?Makes a difference how you patch them.

Hank,

If you can take a digital photo and upload it, that would help you out the most for a proper analysis.

It sounds as if the decking is rotted, so, minimally a section larger than the rotted decking needs to be torn off and have the decking replaced.

You do not necessarily have to roof all the way to the perimeter flashings, but that would be the best bet for reducing the likelyhood of water entering under a fresh seam.
