Rotting and Leaking roofs are a hell of an inconvenience. However, damaged roofs are unavoidable, especially when your current roof has taken a lot of previous damage from all kinds of weather. This is why maintaining your roof’s condition is important.
A wet, leaky roof invites a lot of mold and mildew which can compromise our lungs and overall immune system. The leak from the roof can also cause some serious damage to a home. It can ruin wooden furniture, walls, and other parts of your home.
This homeowner from Portland is having the issues mentioned because of a rotting and leaking roof. Read on to know how our team remedied the situation.
Prepping Walls for Siding Installation
To start, we removed all damaged roof materials, especially those infested with mold as it would just continue to rot the roof if not remedied entirely. Thus, we removed ALL current barge boards & replaced them with new pre-primed barge boards due to rot. In addition, we removed the existing layer of asphalt roofing.
After that we also removed RVO vents and replaced them with manufactured plywood plug, then Ice & Water. Where it is needed, we replaced the plywood with ½” CDX Plywood.
