I am looking for a temporary, quick attic roof repair.
My house is 50 years old. The roof is 13 years old.
I noticed some leaking from my attic roof in a few places in the spring when all the snow and ice begin to melt off the roof. It is the area where I was walking around on the roof to do some painting. I guess all that walking on the roof wasnít very good for the shingles installation. I probably need a new roof, but canít find the $5K right now to pay for it.
Iím looking for something that I can spray or brush on the attic roof (inside) to seal the plywood to keep it from leaking. I donít want to use something like a spray foam insulation. I also donít want to use tar. Picture me laying on my back on the attic floor, spreading something on the underside attic roof while itís dripping all over me. I think something more like a very thick paint. Iím not too worried about odor because I have a large fan in the attic to draw out the heat in the summer.
What do you recommend? Maybe just some cheep paint?]
Also, is there a way to repair the damage to the top of the roof without replacing the entire roof? As I said, the roof is about 13 years old and itís only leaking in the area that I walked on. Itís an area where the roof meets a taller part of the house. Picture a house with a second floor on only half the house. Itís the lower roof section that Iím talking about.
