I have barn/shed on the opposite side of my 18 acres. I only use it to
store stuff I really should throw out, and rarely even see it. But... it
might have value to the next owner. It is about 20x22 with little pitch.
The shingles are maybe 30 or 40 years old and in pretty bad condition,
though there are no leaks (that I am aware of) but it is just a matter of
time. Obviously the right thing to do is to rip off the old shingles and
put new ones down, but I really hate the thought of that expense for
something I don't use or even see. Is there a cheap way to buy some time on
this? Plastic sheeting, some sort of spray, etc? The next owner can rip
the shingles off if they care about it.
Or maybe this my chance to learn roofing. It is probably the easiest roof I
will ever encounter; it is small, low, with little pitch.
