Little puddles of water...


Not that it influenced my decision in any way, but the permit drawings for the roof extension was handwritten over by some fool at the planning department requiring it to "match existing!" I doubt they would require me to rip it off. I'll just let the winter rains have at it. Next year's major project might be opportunity to reroof the entire house, if I don't sell before then.

As for tiles shedding water, no kidding. Hindsight is always 20/20. The slope of many tiles were checked with a level during installation. Some, especially those visible in the photo, apparently raked the wrong way after getting nailed.

Why didnt you simply put a low slope roof on, since you thin you kknow what youre doing and seem to be a smartass?

You prove yourself to be quite judgmental! How exactly did I offend you? I wasn't the one making assumptions. Don't fall off that high horse now. Or have you already? Well that's embarrassing.

Don't worry about it. You already tried answering.

contact the roofer who performed the job and ask for his recommendations for resolution.

Perhaps I misunderstood something, and for the smartass comment I am sorry.

As for your roof, you need to go low slope. I have some other solutions that could keep you waterproof, but it is not cheap. You might be as good with a tear off ofthe low slope, and re-roof with a low slope system.
