I am having a problem with a leak . It appears to be on the facia. I looked at the drip edge and found it like nothing I have ever seen. My plan is to seal the botom of the quasi-drip edge with silicone just to see if that does the trick. Does anyone know more about these types of roofs on a slope? First one I have ever seen!

Finish what I start

Have repaired numerour T&G roofs. The most important thing to do, after sweeping back the area involved, is to apply an asphalt primer. This is available at any roof supply house, and they do happily sell to homeowners.

Areas that normally leak at T&G eves are the edge flashing joints...about 1 evey 9-10 ft. You'll see cracks, after sweeping it back.

The next likey are to check is the roof edges, lifting up...breaking free of the edge flashings. Water will then suck up under it.

Lastly is where the roof is very deteriorated, and the roof is actually split open at the back edge of the edge flashings. You can sometimes see long cracks...or it worse cases even the metal intself because it's so deteriorated.

After applying the asphalt primer...with a throw-away brush, let it set up for a day. You'll find it's soaked into the roof and has left you a nice clean tacky surface onto which you'll apply fibered roof coating...with a roof coating brush. If the openings or cracks are large, sometimes one will apply a bit of plastic roof cement prior to applying the coating.

You'll also need old throw-away clothes, and some good hand cleaner.

A roof CAN be your friend
