During a recent rain storm, I noticed a very slow drip of water coming from the center of my (external) garage roof in a few places.
After it dried up, I went to inspect the problem spots and found some rotting and could see daylight through some spots where the nails were.
Close to the front there was a significant amount of torn tar paper and it was even completely free in one spot where I could touch the metal ridge cap that sits atop the roof. (Shown below)
From the exterior, there doesn’t appear to be any major damage to my shingles or cap or anything out of the ordinary that I am able to see from ground level.
Also, after a thorough inspection during heavy rain, there were no other areas leaking other than along the general line of the ridge.
Would like to keep my garage from rotting itself from the inside out, and prevent any foundation damage here, so I would like to address this as soon as possible.
What must be done to stop this leak?
