How To Perform A Roof Repair
Here is a Lutz Roofing roofing repair we performed recently.
On this home, we had a combination of a roof leak from poor installation and leaks from shingles that blow off from the high winds.
These three-tab shingles don’t have a high wind resistance, they are only rated up to 60 MPH and that's only during the first few years. This roof was old as you can see by how the shingles are faded and dirty. They have granular lass which is a sign of age and there is a lot of algae on them.
We removed the existing shingles and whatever was left from the wind damaged shingles. Inspected the underlayment and replaced it as needed. The underlayment will start to fade in the sun and fall apart, revealing the plywood, so it’s important to inspect it and fix it when needed.
Next, we installed the Owens Corning Supreme shingles. While they are technically the same color, they don’t look like it because they are brand new and the original shingles are covered in algae.
Most importantly on these types of roof repairs is what we did next. Nailed down the existing shingles directly around the repair and sealed down the existing shingles. The reason being, every shingle has built-in sealant that comes with the shingle when you buy it. But in the process of a wind storm or replacing shingles, these seals can be broken. So it’s important to re-seal and nail back down the singles directly around the new ones.
