How To Perform A Roof Repair
Here is a Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Roofing repair we performed recently.
When a house is built it’s easy for the stucco crew to come behind the roofers and damage the roof and flashing in the process. This chimney is a great example. Every chimney has flashing around the base.
Roof flashing is needed every time you have a transition such as where the roof meets a wall or chimney, as we have here. Flashing could be multiple types of material but in most cases, it will be a type of metal.
With this roof repair, we found damaged plywood so we had to replace it before doing anything else. When you remove the shingles and underlayment, the water stains on the wood tell the story of where the water was coming from.
In this case, the water stains on the wood were right at the corners of the chimney. Which makes sense because right at the corner is where two pieces of flashing come together. It’s important to have the flashing overlapped in such a way that water can not get between them.
We installed the new plywood and adjusted the flashing accordingly. Next, we installed the underlayment and ice, and water shield. The last step was to install the Owens Corning Duration shingle. We tie the new shingles into the existing shingles and nail down and seal the surrounding shingles that come in contact with our repair.
