So on the roof the other day, and put my foot near a clean out vent. There was noticeable give in the roof surrounding the vent. It felt like it was just being held by the shingles and whatever felt material shingles are stapled to. I assume there is a leak and the osb underneath has rotted.
I did shoot an email to a friendly roofer to just quickly request a quote, but I wanted to know how difficult the process is.
Here is what I assume happens and please add to/correct me if its wrong. Shingles come up, the felt comes up, and the OSB that is rotted is removed from support to support (I assume the whole sheet is tossed). Whatever is causing the vent to leak is fixed via flashing cement, maybe a poorly shot nail etc redone, and then OSB replaced, felt, shingles and done.
I like to think its something I could accomplish, but my main concern is time. Usually when there's a house project to look into, I have time to hit forums, google, and complete a task at my leisure. In this case I am not so sure lol. So would love someone with some experience in the area maybe give me a run down of what a pro contractor might do for this. Thank you :).
Added some pics. The video that I can’t upload helps more. But basically I can see the osb totally collapsed, and ripped through the radiant barrier as well. I don’t really smell mold or mildew and it looks like the piece of wood that extends basically to the cinder block and runs horizontal(don’t know what it’s called), has gotten a little wet too.
I’m assuming it’s leaking but I don’t see any water inside because the clean outs run through the cinder block? So water isn’t hitting the drywall ceiling?
