Hi everyone, I’m new here and so thankful I found this forum.
We are first time homeowners and bought our house as a short sale. We had a guy look at the roof when we moved in in August of 2015 and he said a few patches should be made which we paid him to do. This morning it was raining and I hear dripping on the ceiling right under our the peak of our hipped roof (where he repaired) so I peeked into the attic to investigate and noticed some darker areas on the decking and what looked to be a little bit of mold on the underside of the decking but nothing appeared wet or rotting (not that we want to wait until that point). I guess my questions are can anyone tell me anything about the condition of our roofing by looking at the pics of our attic? How to we decipher old vs new damage? Also we got a bid for $8.5k to redo our roof with out them even going up there. They just surveyed our roof area and calculated the price to redo everything. We were told it would be 2x more expensive to do metal which I found excessive. Bonus points if someone can tell me why there are fans up there ️ Thank you in advance!
