Jared asked the question about his roof warranty, "Can I have a dry rot problem fixed without affecting my roof warranty?"

I would ask your contractor why the wood in question was not replaced. If it is just stained from moisture and has no wood fiber damage, I would just repaint it and forget about it.

If your contractor feels like he didn’t see it and made a mistake when doing the roof, replacing it is not a problem. Your new roof can be disassembled in the area of concern with no damage and then the wood can be repaired. If you ask they will bring out a bundle or two and it should match up in a few days after some of the oils burn off. Be sure to ask for new tarpaper to be used.

This is a simple repair and should not affect your warranty.
