Flashing in this valley and along this head-wall was lifted and susceptible to water entry with wind-driven rain.
Water was coming in around this pipe when it would rain. The TechShield radiant barrier backing on this plywood had begun to peel off.
The problem immediately became apparent - the nails in this boot flashing were far too close to the corners of the plastic flange. Basically, the water can get in because this flashing isn't installed correctly.
After exposing the deck by removing the existing shingles and underlay, the OSB (Oriented Strand Board) deck appeared to be rotten, and had to be replaced.
Tomas V., one of our skilled repairmen, made the repairs necessary to this roof.
Brand new shingles, a brand new lead jack, and new OSB decking completed this roof repair in Missouri City, TX how it should be done. Skilled labor is one of the essential properties of a long-lasting repair.
Pictured here is a close up shot of how we use roofing screws with neoprene washers on all metal flashing, to ensure it stays down for many years without leaking.
