We found this skylight in a really bad shape. Fixing skylights without professional help is only a temporary solution.
The roof didn't show extensive damage, however all the vents are in need of replacement.
Cracks around vents
Cracks around the old vents should be resealed as soon as possible before the water that gets in during heavy rains won't develop major property damage.
The homeowner would get a 50 year warranty on his roof if he decided to replace the full roof with us!
New Roof and Vents
When replacing the roof, we always inspect the decking after the old shingle roof is removed, and replace all rotten wood with new plywood. Then we install waterproofing layers - Ice & Water Barrier and Synthetic Underlayment and all joints are properly sealed. The new asphalt shingles are installed in a California pattern. In this case, we would also replace old rusty box vents and pipe vents with new UV-protected PermaBoots and Lomanco Box Vents that will never deteriorate.
We have a perfect solution for you if your old boots need to be replaced! Our specially-designed PermaBoots will protect all areas on your roof where a pipe was installed. Our boots are heavy-duty and UV-protected and will last as long as your roof.
We, at Klaus Roofing Systems of Nashville, always make sure your attic has proper ventilation and the hot air can escape.
