The Challenge

The customer contacted Mr. Roof Repair because they wanted an assessment to isolate a leak that was coming in from the bathroom fan on the flat roof of their row house. The Roofers determined that when the townhome was built, the installer had put a flat roof vent over the exhaust pipe for the bathroom fan. This was incorrect and they needed a proper exhaust flapper vent installed. The leak was caused by frost and moisture build up under the vent. They also found that the skylight needed to be replaced as it had cracked.

The Solution

The Repair Specialist Team needed to install a proper flapper vent for flat roofs. A horizontal pipe was connected and a flapper vent installed and sealed. This ensured that the moisture was released and would prevent mold issues.

Additionally, a new curb mount skylight with tempered glass was installed. The skylight was an energy star unit with argon gas installed between the glass to keep the moisture and condensation build up to a minimum.
