The homeowners spotted this leak and decided to call Klaus and schedule a free roof inspection to find the leak source.
Roof measurements are taken during a roof inspection. Our roof specialists are very detail-oriented and won't miss anything!
Old Leaky Vents
Some vents developed leaks at cracked sealant. This roof also had an old satellite dish that we removed and replaced it with new layer of shingles, of course we didn't forget to waterproof it!
We inspected the chimney flashing. Thankfully it didn't have any leaks.
For all clogged gutters we have a solution at Klaus Roofing Systems! It's RainDrop gutter guards! They have special design that keeps gutters clog-free and maintenance-free! No more ladder climbing for homeowners, just clean and functioning gutters all year long.
Removal of old shingles, old flashing and layers underneath.
All seams on decking are taped with a waterproofing tape.
Before we install a new flashing, a layer of waterproofing SealoronXT was applied underneath the flashing and shingles.
SealoronXT is made of a heavy-duty, tear-resistant material that won't allow water through.
Our roof specialist inspect the roof from outside, the attic and perform a brittle test to find out how much life this roof has left in it.
Brittle test is performed on one or several random shingles. The shingle is bent - if it cracks, it means the roof is too old and won't withstand weather, hail and wind much longer and should be replaced ASAP.
Old leaky vent was replaced, properly sealed, and the area around covered with a waterproofing layer before we installed new shingles. PermaBoot is not applied on top to protect the vent from water and weather elements.
Voila! New flashing won't allow a drop of water in!
Removing Satellite Dish
After we removed the old satellite dish, we installed a piece of decking on, waterproofing layers and new shingles.
After: Satellite Dish
The roof after we removed the satellite dish.
After Roof Vents
The roof is now repaired and doesn't have any more leaks. It has new PermaBoots and new flashing that will protect the roof for many years.
