Repairing More Than Just Shingles
Homes along the Gulf Coast typically have a variety of openings in their roofs for vents, skylights and chimneys. Each of those openings poses a certain amount of risk for leaks.
When flashing is properly installed and maintained, however, the potential for leaks is greatly reduced. Fortenberry Roofing considers your flashing with every roof leak repair, regardless of the roofing material in use. Metal roofing may also have grommets around installation screws that need to be monitored and replaced when necessary.
Common Causes of Roof Leaks
One of the most significant issues we commonly come across when evaluating customers’ roofs is flashings that have been improperly installed. While the issues are most prevalent around chimneys and where roofs meet sidewalls, any flashing can be installed incorrectly. We will properly repair or replace incorrectly installed flashings of all types when fixing your roof.
Rubber or composite collars are commonly installed around vents and pipes to provide a tight seal and prevent leaks. As time goes by, those materials will deteriorate. When that happens, cracks will develop, or the collar will no longer fit tightly around the pipe or vent. That means water will get past the collar and enter your home. When collars are older, it’s important to inspect them frequently to identify problems before serious damage can occur.
Missing or Deteriorated Caulk
Roofing caulk, like collars, will eventually fail. It tends to dry out, shrink and pull away from the material it was originally applied to. At that point, any protection provided by the caulk is gone. While the overuse of caulking is never recommended, there are places where its use is helpful, and damaged caulk should be repaired.
