Here we have a large and steep roof with some installation issues. On the upper rear portion of the house, there is an area where two hips come to a point in a narrow section. The pitch is much less at this slope, and the ridge should have been overlapped with felt rather than gapped. This home’s roof has some age and will likely need total replacement shortly. However, this is a repairable issue.
