How To Perform A Roof Repair
Here is a Hollywood Roofing repair we performed recently.
This type of repair is so important for homeowners to understand. This roof leak was a result of a downspout from a gutter that emptied onto the roof the wrong way. It forced excessive amounts of water into a small area, which overflowed the shingles and caused a leak.
Some manufacturers will not even provide a warranty for their shingles if the gutter downspout isn’t installed correctly. Whenever you have a downspout on a roof, you want it to extend all the way down into the lower gutter.
As a result, we had to remove the existing shingles down to the plywood, which was completely rotted out. We installed a new sheet of plywood and installed ice and water shield to increase the protection in this area.
We inspected the flashing and replaced portions of the metal flashing since it had also rusted. In the final step, we replaced the Owens Corning Duration shingle to match the existing shingles.
Of course, as always, we nailed down and sealed the existing shingles that were directly around the repair because every repair requires this. If this last crucial step is neglected, it increases the chances of shingles blowing off and other problems in the future.
