With hurricane season comes a lot of complications: Roof leaks, tree damage, insurance claims, and endless door-to-door solicitors and mailbox inserts. (Side note: We never go door-to-door. We think it’s annoying, too.)
Don’t roof leaks have the worst timing? Your life is already so busy, the last thing you want to deal with is a wet ceiling. To prepare you for any present or future leaks, we’ve put together a little (or not so little, more like a super thorough) guide for you.
For every roof, there is roof decking. This is the very bottom layer of your roofing system. Typically, it is comprised of many 7/16 OSB sheathing boards nailed into the rafter system of the roof. Every roofing contractor should replace rotted or damaged boards when they replace your roof. Unfortunately, many don’t.
