What To Do About Bad Wood on Your Roof

What does bad wood look like anyway?

In this video, Guy takes us up on the roof to see just exactly what bad roofing beams look like.

On this roof, you'll see how the plywood is starting to delaminate. The glue inside is eating away, which means there are three or four different layers of wood that are coming apart. As Guy steps on the roofing planks, you can see how bendy and soft the plywood is.

Sometimes when roof wood is this bad the whole roof will need to be replaced, but not always. Fortunately for this home owner, as you’ll see, only a section of their roof needed to be replaced.

If you have questions about your roof, don't hesitate to give us a call.
