Hey there, new to the forum and I appreciate any advice I can get. I just recently inherited my grandfather’s house and it is in desperate need of repair, it has been leaking for around two years now on both ends of the house. The leaks are in the valleys and behind one of the chimneys (where the rocks fell and busted it). I am going to repair the leaking sections of the roof temporarily until I can afford to have one put on, or if possible do it myself. The house has alot of cintemental value to me and i would do anything to keep it standing.
I know there is a problem with the shape of the valleys and maybe even the pitch of the roof. My question is, what could be done with the valleys and pitch to correct such an issue? if i were going to have a metal roof put on, what would i need to do to make that possible? Would the whole roof have to be re-framed? more cost effective than replacing shingles? I plenty more photos.
