Upon our initial inspection it was obvious what was wrong with the roof and why it was leaking inside. The trim metal they used on the gables was gable metal and normally this would have been the correct trim metal to use. But this gable isn’t straight. It goes up on a steep angle, this angle lets water build up under the edge of the roof. This has rotted out all the fascia boards and has caused leaks in the cabin.
