My suggestion would be to find a reputable roofing contractor who can provide you with proper materials, flashings and expertise to have a functional roof system.
The biggest thing we see in premature roof failures is not failure of roofing materials but the misapplication of the materials. Time to start over from square one on this one. Wish I had better advise.
And remember the best value in not the cheapest price.
I have to agree,
Not quite sure what your expertise level is on roofing, but from the looks of it, this may be a project better left to the professionals. I had similar leaks in my roof and I did a lot of research beforehand to try to see if it was a fix I could do on my own. I contacted All American Exteriors
and got all my questions answered, unfortunately they were not the answers I was looking for. Called a few other places and ended up hiring them to do the job. It ended up being much more cost effective and took a fraction of the amount of time that it would have taken me by myself, which is a really nice plus given the unpredictable spring weather in Minnesota.
And as stated before: When you are shopping for a professional, do not base the service on price alone. After all, this is the roof over your head we are talking about.
