Leak due to broken sheathing. Repair advice?


Your roof has about 5 years left in it. The good news is. Simple roof or a reroof. You have some serious routing plywood in the one section. Its been leaking for a while. Follow jagan and old n broken advice. Start saving for a new roof. Your looking about about 7k. Your roof looks to be around 16 square give or take. 250 a square few add ons. You get the pic on price.

Use the time and material you will spend trying to make that nice and put a real ridge vent on that will actually work and actually keep the weather out.
My ridge is 38' long, about how much money in materials are we talking?

Is that $7K materials, or $7K material & labor?

The roof isn't as bad as those two pictures lead it on to believe, I can see why it'd appear that way. There are only the two isolated spots near the ridge. The rest of it is fine (from underneath).

I'm putting the house up for rent here in a couple months. I hope I can get a decent amount of time out of the roof.






Everything else looks fine like this:

Wrong vent for that style roof.
The right vent would have no exposted nails.

Your follow up pictures are good. Your leaks originated at the deficient ridge cap. I think If you do what we recommended you will be fine. Your current ridge cap is grabage as ONB stated. Your shingles are basic three tabs. I think you can probably get a good 8-10 years out of those shingles, even though they were not installed very well re adjusting the exposure at the ridge. Black Mold on shingles in MD is pretty common

So the Air Vent ShingleVent II is wrong for my roof type?

The Owens Corning has three different styles:
  • VentSureŽ 4-Foot Strip Heat & Moisture Ridge Vents with Weather PROtectorŽ Moisture Barrier
  • VentSureŽ 4-Foot Strip Heat & Moisture Ridge Vents
  • VentSureŽ Rigid Roll Ridge Vents with Weather PROtectorŽ Moisture Barrier

Shingle Vent II is fine for your roof.

It is one of the better ridge vents out there.

ShingleVent II is what I would put on it. Vent plus new ridgecap you are looking at about $5/ft plus a few hours of work. Since you are already going to have it opened up you are half way there labor-wise.

Ventsure did not fair well in tests, pp.8; http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...5X2VkfoWu6CAwQ

Use 8d (2-1/2") nails, not screws to satisfy your H.O.Insurance carrier, if ever a claim; #30--- http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...002_par005.htm

Yours is lacking the inner filter; "What is the purpose of the filter in the ridge vent?
Air Vent's internal weather filter is designed to be a secondary layer of defense against weather, dust and insect infiltration in the attic." From; http://www.airvent.com/professional/...shooting.shtml

Got it. Why did joecaption say AirVent II was wrong?

Which one specifically will I need to get at Lowe's?

Gary -- Thank you for the regs! Always interesting to read your posts.
