Leaky Roofs Questions and Answers

Flat Garage roof recommendations?

I'm tired of my leaky garage roof. It's a plain ol' tar paper flat roof. Previous owner patched quite a bit and so did I. It still leaks. Should I put another layer of paper and tar on it? Should I run the seams perpendicular to the existing ones? (from front to back). Should I tear off down to the decking and start fresh with new paper and tar? If so, should I go side to side or front to back? Is there a different product that I should try? I'm sure that the huge pine tree towering over the garage doesn't help. Can you?

Your garage roof is flat?? In the case of a flat roof.. the direction of the seems shouldn't matter, except to overlap away from the prevailing wind.

If you really want to eliminate the hassle, build a peak on it.. even a 4/12 pitch would enough to solve your problem..

I hate flat roofs.. you will need yearly maintenance on them...

I have a leak in the center of the north side of my roof. I have been in the attic crawl space and pin pointed the leak but, I can not find any marks, holes or cracks and the nail heads are covered w/ tar... How can I seal this area? Will I need to seal the whole roof?

How does the roof look from the outside. What may well be happening is water is running down the roof under the shingles until it gets under the roofing paper and then finding a way in. Is there a chimney or other flashed opening above the leak? Are the shingles damaged around or above the leak? Do you have a ridge vent that may be letting the water in.

If overall the shape of your shingles is good, then you should be looking for a leak such as I have asked about above. Flashing will be easy to seal or replace. Even a damaged shingle can be replaced.
