    I’m not a roofing contractor so I’ve posted this in the general roofing discussion. I am on the board of directors of a small condominium building. The building is wood-frame construction and has a flat (i.e. low-slope) roof. We have an opening through the roof for a roof hatch. From this...

    Help - what are our options? The new metal panels for our roof arrived and they are the wrong color. This is for a remodel. The house has a darker brown metal roof and we requested the new roofing material to match. The color that arrived is a very light grey/tan color and can appear almost...

    Could someone give us any insight into what’s going on here please? We’ve had some builders doing a small extension on our house and they are saying there is nothing wrong with this felt roof. Aside from missing the lead flashing, it just doesn’t look correct to us. It looks very.. patchy?

    Our GC is doing a new roof shingles for our house remodel/extension. This part here where it connects the old and new area of the house, he said it is a “roof valley” and should not have shingles. It looks pretty ugly and not sure if it is enough water protection without the shingles. We can...

    Hi Everyone - I'm constructing a shed based upon plans I found on the Internet. The plans call for the construction of overhangs attached to the rafters on both sides of the shed. The layout for the roof shows a strip of sheathing that covers the overhang - I would think it would be stronger if...

    I've installed a new gutter on a two tier metal roof, where the upper roof used to drip noisily with an 8ft drop onto the lower roof (and splash to rot the siding). The roofing material is Metal Sales Pro-Panel II from Lowes which has a 40 year finish warranty, and the installation is about 10...

    Is this going to be a potential problem for roof leaks and hard to install a concrete tile roof on? The framer had to change the roof structure because the way the architect drew it, wouldn't work. I am really concerned that this is going to be a huge problem down the road.

    Hi all - Some advice needed on oceanfront roofing in a harsh area. This is for a home in New England. It's directly on the coast, sitting in the open air, above rocks. In fact, on a day with high surf, you can watch the salty spray wash up over the existing house -- which is about to be demo'd...

    Just curious what you guys think about pipe flashing. Do you prefer to use a round base, or a square base. Is it just preference on looks for you or why do you prefer your choice?
