The Challenge

The Client contacted Mr. Roof Repair with concerns about a leak in their skylight.

Mr. Roof Repair’s Roofing Specialist (RS) Team determined the leak was the result of a small hole in the skylight’s flashing and an area with exposed wood at the front of the skylight.  The RS Team sealed the hole in the flashing and exposed area with waterproof roof cement as a temporary fix, but it was ultimately determined that a more permanent solution on a larger scale is required.

The Solution

Upon acceptance of the quote, the Roofing Specialist Team removed the shingles from around the skylight as well as the flashing so the wood was exposed. They installed ice and water shield under the back pan and then re-installed the skylights with new flashing.
