I had a roofer give me two estimates. One to remove and re-roof the entire roof along with replacing the damage decking over the back section of the house. The other estimate is for only removing and replacing the decking and re-roofing. He informed me that the back section of the house where the turtle vent caused severe damage to the decking has too low of a slope to shingle according to code.
Is this accurate based on the photographs for this section of the roof? I apologize that the 2nd picture is not very clear but it is the only one that I had from that angle.
When did the code change?
As you can see the slope is connected to a steeper slope and I am concerned about how that section from that ridge to where the low slope connects would look, but I want to do what is best.
We didn’t have any drainage problems with the first roof, and the leaking on the second roof appears to be caused by the turtle vent, therefore, I don’t believe that the low slope caused any of the issues or had drainage problems.
