This is how I covered my roof that’s been leaking.
I’m not able to get a new roof until the end of spring or the beginning of summer so this cover I designed should hold the water out until then.
This is a DIY project, if you do not feel safe on a roof please do not try this, there are many contractors who will come out and tarp your roof in an emergency.
I called one when the leak got really bad one night but they were going to charge 0, so I decided to tackled this on my own. I hope this helps you if you’re in a similar situation.
This is not the only way or the professional method to cover a leaking roof but it worked for me, when in doubt always seek a professional…if you can afford it.
4 mil black plastic.
(Holds up against 30mph winds, in my experience)
All weather roof cement.
Gorilla tape: (This stuff is excellent)
Wear some safety gear or roof harness, especially if steep! I should have got some type of gear, but I did not want to use it for speed sake.
