A Handyman Helping Hand

leaking roof

Been re-doing a very old and very big house. It's the old Governor's mansion (1904) and nothing is square or centered. I have a seeping leak, the wood underneath the shingles is the ceiling in the attic (tongue&groove) and I don't really want to try to tear out and replace a whole section. It only seeps after it soaks up after a long period of rain. My question: is there something I can coat the wood underside with to block the water and preserve the wood? Thought of bondo, silicone caulk, etc. Having replaced a few sections around here, it will be a real task to construct a level, squared, centered section into an area that's NOT. Thanks for any suggestions. Kary
