Roof problems - warped boards.


I noticed some discolouration on my ceiling so I went into the crawl space attic to have a look. It seems the boards have begun to warp as shown in the attached photos and the water was dripping. I haven't gone up to the roof yet as it is still raining pretty hard.

What are my steps from here?

Thank in advance,

John

This is what happens, when builders use the cheapest subs, along with improper venting in the attic.

All the shingles, tar paper, and sheathings going to need to be replaced.
Mostly because someone did not spend the extra $20.00 for the H clips.
I'd guess the shingles have leaking for a long time to have cause this to happen.

Which came first, the hole or the warped sheathing? I suspect the former?

Thanks for the responses so far. I was going to make it up to the roof after the rain stopped but it persists.

Looks like 3 ply 3/8" to me. Are there any grade stamps on the plywood?

So I finally got up on the roof after work today. Pics posted. That's scotch tape on top of the nail on the third picture. I'm assuming that was a band aid fix for something.

I didn't see any grade stamps on the boards, no.

Those shingles should have been replaced long ago.

I'd suspect finding more damage elsewhere when you get that roof torn off in preperation for the new one. There is no hope of fixing that. That roof is long past shot.

I think the general consensus here will be "That roof is shot". Sorry

Not scotch tape, but the mylar that is placed where the blackjack that is on the back of the shingle, to keep them from sticking.
