In a 14′ x 13′ room, I have 2 strips of wet ceiling from a roof that leaked while under construction. The strips are along the studs and are about 5″ wide by 9’long. This just happened two nights ago. My question is: do I need to have the roofer’s insurance company remove the drywall or can they just put stain blocker on the spots once they are dry and paint over it? We have already removed the wet insulation from the attic. Please advise.
If the insulation is out and the framing is drying out, and if the drywall is not sagging, it could be ok to let it dry out and use a stain blocking primer. I would guess that the texture has already been applied, so that would make it a bit of a problem to get a good replacement.
I have roofers working on my home as I type. When they started, they put felt on right away on the bare wood. I thought the sequence was supposed to be 1) drip edge nailed to the roof of the deck on the eves, 2) underlayment, 3) drip edge nailed over the underlayment on the rakes, 4) and composition shingles begun so the notches stagger.
I questioned the roofers about the drip edge being applied over the underlayment on the eves and he said that it was okay….is it? (PS they are not using any cement or silicone type of sealant or ice guard on the roof at all and I live in Ohio)
