People,

I have a pitched shingle roof, has years left to it. But, there is a spot that the nail on the shingle was exposed, and previous owner neglected. As a result, wood piece below it rotted over a year or 2, befor I bought the place.

So, Were talking about only say, a 4" wide pine board, and from rafter to rafter, say, 14-156". Thats it. To replace that pine board, do I have to yank a few shingles above it, then cut out the pine, replace, then shingle back? Or can I do this from underneath somehow, without disturbing the shingles?

Thanks,

Pull the shingles and felt,,,replace the area truss to truss.Patch felt and then shingle.

I don't know any other way around it.Besides if the shingles have holes from the backed out nails,then its pointless to repair the decking without the shingles being replaced.

Make sure the adjoining boards haven't started to rot as well. If there is any rot on them they need to go as well. No point in leaving them behind to start the rot all over.
