The Challenge

The Client approached Mr. Roof Repair with concerns about a couple of leaks. One is coming in on the left side of the home causing cracks in the ceiling, and the other is on the right side of the home coming in through a light fixture.

The Solution

Upon inspection, Mr. Roof Repairs Roofing Specialist (RS) Team determined that there were missing shingles in numerous areas throughout the roof. The area behind the home was wide open, allowing high winds to rush up the slope and pull the shingles loose. There was no underlayment installed in the area of the missing shingles, which had allowed water to seep straight through the roof deck and into the home with little resistance.

As the damage was too great to simply replace the shingles during the appointment, a tarp was installed to cover the damage until a permanent repair could be completed.

During the assessment, it was also noted that the plywood roof deck had begun to warp and sag in the same area. There were no vented soffit panels installed on the home, leaving the air intake non-existent, which was disrupting the flow of air through the attic space and causing roof deck damage.

It was recommended that the entire back slope of the roof be replaced, and the damaged roof deck be repaired at that time. It was also recommended that edge venting be installed as this would allow for adequate air intake into the attic space. A quote was provided to this effect. The quote was accepted and work commenced.
