Hole in Sun Room Roof

Roofers uncovered good size hole in the sun room roof: approximately eight inches long, by two inches deep, by a sloping four inches wide. No wonder patching the roof didn’t work. The low pitch of the roof combined with three-tab shingles meant water didn’t run away cleanly. Instead, it meandered through the shingles and into my sun room ceiling…

View the thumbnail below for a detailed look at the sun room roof. The edges along the left side of the picture show the rotted sheets of plywood. On top of the sun room roof issues, there were other things: the entire roof is double-shingled (extra cost to remove the dual layers), the top layer was installed with 2 inch nails instead of regular roofing nails, and there are other “creative” problems. Let’s hear it for roofs incorrectly installed! Not.
