Repair or Replace Porch Roof – Contractor Recommendation
Hello Popville. I have a small front porch (64″ x 187″) with an old roof that has no gutter. Instead, it has an ineffective little trench scooped into it, attached to a tiny, always-clogged little pipe. The roof itself is old and most likely leaking, so there’s a good possibility that there’s some structural water damage.
I would like to repair the roof, recover it, and attach a gutter and downspout to a rain barrel (which I already have). I’m not sure who I should hire to do this, though. Is this a job that a handyman can do, or do I need a roofing company. Will a roofing company even do a job this small?
I have attached a photo of the gutter and some of the damage that makes me think I shouldn’t just slap some rolled asphalt on and call it a day.
Thanks in advance for any general advice or specific recommendations you can offer.
