How To Perform A Roof Repair
Here is a North Lauderdale Roofing roofing repair we performed recently.
This is a roof leak that came from a vent in the attic. These vents are in place to help keep the attic cool and circulate air and moisture out of the attic space. The colder air comes in at the eaves and vents out of the top of the roof through vents like these.
We were able to inspect the attic space and find watermarks in the insulation as you can see in the pictures. The insulation was still in good condition, the water didn’t damage it. But it shows us exactly where the water came in, which is always helpful when diagnosing leaks.
After removing the shingles and the damaged vent, we inspected the plywood, thankfully it was in good condition. Next, we installed underlayment to cover the plywood and then roof cement around the edges of where the vent was going to sit.
It’s important to have the extra protection of roof cement around the edges of the vent because the manufacturer requires it, plus it just makes sense to add the extra protection.
As always, the last step is the shingles. These were the Owens Corning Duration shingle, which is the top of the line in this market.
