I own a log home with an older roof. My attic is unfinished. I’m getting ready to sell the house.
The roof is a masonite product from the 1980’s, it looks like shake but comes in pieces about 18"x 24". There are no leaks, the sheathing looks perfect.
However, from the attic, in a few places I can see daylight up through the peak of the roof.
There is no ridge vent. I think the guy who built the house just butted the shingles together at the peak. I’m guessing they settled over the years & now there are gaps. I’m sure moisture is getting in, though I only see one spot that looks a little wet.
I don’t want to do anything expensive unless I have to.
Is there something I can do from the interior myself to plug/cover/patch those holes?
Or, is there something inexpensive a roofer can do from the outside?
I have my own painting & minor home repair biz, but roofing is little out of my ballpark!
Thanks! - gg11
