In this video, like our other videos, we are showing you step-by-step how to tackle a full roof repair project on your own without having to pay a roofing company and saving you hundreds of dollars. For this roof repair, an expected total cost from a reputable roofing company can cost anywhere from $700.00 and more. Here we will be removing asphalt shingles, the plywood decking below it and we will show you how to reinstall it.
This project is a roof leak that was caused by a defected plastic attic vent. We are also replacing a mushroom vent with a metal vent and we are also going to show you how to roof around this vent. It’s a very detailed jam packed video and by far, the best roofing how-to video out there. Below you will find a list of the items and tools needed to complete this roof repair.
