    Hi newbie here, I have a 1951 house in Los Angeles, and have a little issue with the front eaves/rafter tails with some water rot. 8 years ago my sister had the city help my mom out and the city added a layer of shingles to her roof, double shingles. I noticed the added weight has caused some...

    I have Interlock metal roof around 10 years old. Unfortunately Interlock did not transfer life time warranty after I moved in the house. One of the problems I have is peeling paint on every single shingle but its seems just like cosmetic problem. Worst is that there is a lots of leaks around...

    The roof over my patio is an extension of the regular roof. It appears when the home was built the patio was covered with open rafters and later those rafters were covered so the ceiling has a plywood covering . When doing so they added a 1x2 along the outer bottom edge of the eaves to cover...

    I bought a house that was built in 1951. The house has really no eaves around the entire house, so there are no undereave vents. The house does have a Gable mounted vent fan. I needed to replace it because it makes some horrible rattling noises, but when I was reading the instructions, they...

    I am looking at replacing my roof this spring. My house is 25 years old and is in need of a new roof.

    Just bought my first house last week. Built in 1986. During the inspection of the attic my inspector told me I should pull back the fiberglass insulation batting from the overhang to create soffit airflow. The roof has a ridge vent along the entire length as well as three gable vents. From...

    I'd like to replace my shingle over 5/16" OSB (excellent condition, but cheap materials) roof with a standing seam metal roof. The "attic" interior is inaccessible, just 18" high at the ridge, down to nothing high at the eaves. There is no eave overhang; the roof stops an inch past the...
