It keeps leaking badly. Who built did a terrible job. My husband is there now the old roofing material rolled in off break. We can not afford to hire someone so we have to do it ourselves. What should we do first? It's 8. 5 25 feet. There is not even tar paper on the tables and the tables are only 1/2 inch thick. Is that too thin? I know we need tar paper, at least, new to flash and then rolls. Anything else? There is also a large gap between the trailer and the addtion (just styrofoam stuffed in the middle). Thanks for any help. It is a nearly flat roof on the side of the trailer, about four inches below the ceiling of the trailer (which is where the gap is 3 inches). Essentially – I guess the roof is made with a jump in it. . If space does not cause a leak I would not worry about that. . All you will need are: New roof Tar paper roll. Wax headed roofing nails. Make sure that they will go all the way through the 1/2 "plywood + layers of roofing) Run the tar paper opposite to the direction you intend to lay the rolled roofing and overlay about 1/2 ". . (No key down-If you do use a few nails) When you place the rolled roofing material to make the part of the crown (top) past. Start at the bottom edge of the cover and attach the first piece. Nail down except for the top edge. . The following should overlap the first piece of about one inch and two inches. . This is called a back rain and some rain can not seep under the first piece. . Always raining lap each piece all the way to the top. Then on top of having delayed the rest of the roof. Take a whole band and put it all the way to the point roof. . This will be one big rain back. . . Oh, and 1/2 "plywood is good .. If your house under the roof, then I guess it's for a patio or any other use (Add on, etc..) Then the drop should be fine .. The rain just falling from the ceiling above the add on .. You may want to make sure you have a good rain gutters at home. Whether it's a very old house with small spout can buy good cheap replacement gutters to a supply of mobile homes close you ..
