What is wrong with this roof? Answer


#1

You guy’s are good.
If I didn’t have this picture I would have thought that the first roof board had sucked in too much water because of the low slope and then rotted away.

sweet. i love being right. and slater too, but i think we’re both bostonians


#3

looks like an east boston roof, dont it slater?


#4

looks like they used some insulation to cover the gutter.
maybe you can use that old gutter again.

well good luck.

gweedo.


#5

look. they set the first row into the gutter just as I said with tar. I knew it. see the tar on the bottom of the first row and on the top of the drip edge? I swear to you ive never seen such an application. it was the only thing that made sense based on the photogragh. dont i deserve your ventilation answer dennis? from the gazebo last week?


#6

It almost looks like someone put a rubber roof over cover board before the shingles went on. :?

S&G I cleared that up in your gweedo thread. :smiley:


#7

Cheaters, we dont have gutters like that here in Indiana


#8

i also thought that was only a boston thing that i saw on this old house…until this year ive seen 5 of them on my jobs. but i am in NY so the term “YANKEE GUTTER” would still include my area i guess.

Actually Severance and Gallant-I’m from the great State of Maine


#10

Maybe a yankee builder that went west.

they only do work like this on rentals here in boston, aside from your occassional clueless moron that only hears a price… I wouldn’t put my name on this if the homeowner requested it and knew it was a hack job. I don’t do rentals pretty much.
