porch roof repair tips

New to forum. I documented the problem for which I am seeking advice in a PDF, but the file size is 1.7Mb. Not sure if I can upload that here.

Perhaps the file size restriction is there because I am new user?

Welcome to the forums.

What is it you are trying to load..... a picture in PDF ? A PDF text ?
The PDF limit on the board is 20k. Maybe it will allow up to 100k.

The pdf has a bunch of pictures and some annotations. Even compressed it's 1.7Mb. I'm looking for a file sharing service to hopefully make it easier.

Excellent presentation.

If there are only nails holding the "ledger" board to the sheathing..... they won't go back in by jacking up the roof. They would need to be hammered in at the same time. I'm not the pro in this forum but you have many problems here. Most are right in this picture. The weight of the roof not properly transferred directly to the footing. The pros will offer their opinions. Good luck as I can see it all coming down and being replaced/repaired.

sheathing?

I'm really curious if anyone has insight to what I am seeing behind the first layer of sheathing.

Why two layers? Why the horizontal? Are studs above horizontal likely to match ones underneath horizontal? Are there even any studs under the horizontal OSB?

Maybe I should just cut into second layer of sheathing and take a look. I guess I'm afraid what I might find

In the picture where you took the beadboard off. It looks like there is an opening in the right side. Possibly an attic. Can you reach or see in there ? That sure does look like two layers of OSB. Not sure why that would have been done.

Not attic

It's hard to tell from picture, but there are two things going on there.

First, the front face of the house is not a single plane. There is a two foot jog back to the right of the doorbell.

Second, you'll notice the roof over the door has a different cross-section than the roof over the right. The slope direction of each is rotated by 90 relative to each other.

What you see in that hole is what they had to do to get these two portions of roof to merge. No insights vis-a-vis sheathing unfortunately, it just wraps around the jog.
