Leaky Roof Deck!
Hi folks! My first post here, and in need of advice.
We bought a nice, older home early 2010 from an estate. Turns out the flat roof deck leaks. There is one corner where the floor is spongy/soft, so we have stayed off it. Did not have an issue with leaking until this recent autumn's rains.
I know it will eventually need to be ripped out, and redone, but I need to get by on the cheap for a few years till we can pull that off. Down payment, furnishings, etc. make it cost prohibitive to entirely replace.
So, it's about a 12'X20' roof deck, one portion of the home. The previous owners put some kind of rubber/reflective coating on it to make it look good, but it lasted one summer, now leaking.
For now, I want to use some sort of adhesive/sealant, and put plywood over the top, tar it, then add a layer of rolled roofing. Am I wasting my time and money, or would you think this would hold us for a couple years? There is a slight slant to the deck, to drain the water off, so there would not be much standing water. What materials would you recommend, or should I try this option at all?
