So today i was cleaning out all the pine needles from my gutters and decided to lift up the front part of the shingles (2 layers) and noticed that there’s like a 1 inch gap in the wood roof deck end to end of the eaves. The gap is between the fascia and the roof deck. Not sure if they ran out of wood or what. The shingles are covering the gap so i don’t think water is coming in. I haven’t had a chance to check the backside of the house to see if it’s the same way.
I’m planning to get a new roof in the next few weeks so it’s not a major concern besides having to pay for plywood to possibly redo the roof deck.
Any ideas why there’s this long 1 inch gap? The roof has 2 layers, and the second layer was put on in 2003 per the seller, so the first layer was probably done in the early 90s.
Roof has no ridge vents, just gable vent and a power fan that’s not working. we moved into the house about 2 months ago.
