The Client approached Mr. Roof Repair with concerns about a leak that is coming into their bathroom at the front of the home.
Mr. Roof Repairs Roofing Specialist (RS) Team determined that there were a number of factors that could have been contributing to the leaks. They noted that there were a couple of areas on the front lower roof where the flashing has lost its seal. The mortar between the bricks below the window was also cracked. There are white marks on the bricks which is a sign that water is getting into the brick. There is also a small hole in the mortar above the flashing.
On the second story above the leak there is an overhang that does not have proper flashing installed. All of the above issues could be contributing to the leak that the Client is experiencing.
The RS Team applied a sealant to the top of the flashing on the front lower roof. As a temporary measure, they also sealed between the brick slabs where the mortar is cracked. They also temporarily installed underlayment on the over hang where the flashing is missing.
A quote was provided for the installation of proper flashings on the overhang. It was also recommended that a Mason be contacted to address the issues with the brick.
