Roof Repair and Flashing Installation in Johnson City, TN.

Roof Repair and Flashing Installation in Johnson City, TN.

When the homeowner called us out to inspect an active leak between her sunroom and the back of the house in Johnson City, TN. We conducted a thorough evaluation of the area. Our inspection revealed that the root cause of the leak was improper flashing during the construction of the sunroom addition. This lack of proper flashing allowed water to penetrate the roof and resulted in the leak.

To address the issue and prevent any further damage, we proceeded with the necessary roof repairs. The following steps were taken:

We removed four rows of shingles above the eave line of the sunroom. This allowed us to access the affected area and properly address the flashing issue.

A self-adhering ice/water shield was installed to provide an extra layer of protection against water infiltration. This shield acts as a barrier, preventing any water from seeping through the roof and causing leaks.

Proper counter flashing was installed to ensure that water is effectively diverted away from the vulnerable area where the sunroom and the house connect. Counter flashing acts as a protective barrier, preventing water from entering the gap between the two structures.

Finally, new shingles were installed to restore the aesthetic appeal and functionality of the roof. These new shingles were carefully chosen to match the existing roof, ensuring a seamless appearance.

By addressing the root cause of the leak and conducting the necessary repairs, we have successfully resolved the issue. The homeowner can now enjoy a leak-free sunroom and have peace of mind knowing that the roof has been properly flashed and protected against future leaks.

As always, we recommend regular roof inspections and maintenance to prevent any potential issues from escalating. If you have any further concerns or require additional assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
