Hi folks, am looking for your thoughts on whether a flat roof is easy enough to rebuild for a competent DIYer?
The flat felt roof on the garage is leaking and I think there are spots where the boards under the felt are rotten (its been plasterboarded inside which makes it difficult to see).
Having watched Youtube videos and looked at felt manufacturers documentation, it would seem fairly straightforward to:
- rip up the old felt and boards and skip it.
- Lay new boards (tempted to add a little extra fall to the roof too as its rather flat and pools water)
- Fit torch-on underlay and felt.
Its a two car (long thin) garage.
Has anybody done similar? Is it as straightforward as it looks and where did you encounter problems?
thanks in advance all
