roof concern

[QUOTE=kennyairport;1130823]The roof has a hole about the size of half dollar and I cut small square and checked the wood and it was moist but not all the way through. My insurance wants to just patch it and repair shop said it would only cause more problems later. So should I insist on complete new roof seems like all the info I gathered up to this point leans toward replacement and it is less than 1 year old. Your thoughts.

all input is welcome. thanks

Seems to me there are big holes cut in your roof all over the place. They are plugged with a/c units, plumbing vents, skylights, etc and then sealed around with a good roof sealer. A hole that size should be able to patched, if done correctly with no problems. Maybe the shop is looking for a bigger payday.

If it were mine, I would want it patched personally. There are some fantastic bonding products available to do just that, and as the previous poster said, there are already lots of other holes in the roof. Think of how many more chances of water leaks there will be if they remove the entire roof and everything attached to it.

Patch the hole, place a sewer pipe vent cover over it, seal it and you are done. Replacement of the whole roof by some or not most dealers might result in more trouble down the road.

Is it just a hole in the rubber material or is it all the way through? If it's just the rubber I'd use an Eternabond patch.

My thought is too cut out some of the wood to make sure it's dry around all the edges then patch, fill and cover with eternabond.
