Why the Homeowner Called Mr. Roof Repair:
We were called in due to a severe leak of the home’s front entrance.
The Problems We Found:
We were shown leak which extended from first floor main straight down to the basement along one wall.
We inspected roof surface and discovered the valley was not only incomplete but installed incorrectly. Shingles were not installed and finished properly on both sides; they were stepped back and starter shingles were the only ones exposed.
Solutions for the Roof:
We temporarily sealed the area using roof cement from top to bottom on both sides – 10 to 12 feet, of the valley. We then touched up a couple of loose nails in the area.
As this is a temporary repair, a permanent repair is required. The work done was simply to allow the homeowner time to complete the permanent repair. There is no guarantee on how long a temporary solution will stop or slow the leak and therefore a permanent repair should be completed as soon as possible. A permanent repair will ensure the area is water tight and no longer leak which would lead to further interior damage.
