Rotten decking, no lap over hips Knoxville, TN.

Rotten roof decking is a problem for a roof. It means that we need to take off the shingles and replace the roof deck. Adding the shingles back is, of course, the last step.

No lap over the hips means that the roof’s felt does not overlap the ridges and hips. This is against code to not lap felt over hips.
