Default Tile off roof..now its raining.. Problem??

Getting the steep west facing slope of my roof fixed up..tiles are off..eave section only...now its pouring rain.. Just how big of a problem is this..expecting dry warm weather this week. Just let it dry out????

To steep for me to climb up and put plastic up.

Thanks in advance.

Is there any roofing paper on the roof? What kind of sheathing do you have if you know - plywood or OSB - Oriented STrand Board? Is water getting into the roof/insulation?

No water inside the house...only a large overhang section..paper was removed..so its just wood..real wood.. Not mdf

Thanks for the response. Sorry no pic.

Big deal?, or no sweat?

If I understand correctly its just the overhang section that is getting rained on?
Exterior plywood can get wet - it always does when a house gets built before the roofing felts go on - but they do not have finishes or insulation that can get wet like a finished house does. Wet insulation or wet framin that gets covered with new roofing before it can dry fully will lead to problems down the road.

Thanks.. Correct..only exterior eaves getting soaked. Will let it dry for a few days before we cover it back up with felt and tiles. Thanks again.

Good, hope all goes well. Just make sure your contractor is better prepared next time so you don't end up sweating bullets until the job's done!
