- 1Transition metal not sealed or screwed
As you can see This piece of transition metal is not sealed or screwed off properly. This will allow for water penetration behind the transition metal and underneath it.
We took out the bottom 2 screws and added clear NP1 sealant to the bottom and back of the metal. Sat it in place and adhered it to the wall and screwed it off. You never want to put holes/screws in the roof if you don’t have to. This piece only needs screws in the wall section. The red line represents the sealant on the bottom and the arrows point to the sealant on the back.
in this picture, you can see the screws that were added along with the piece of metal.Go To Pin

- 3Another pipe boot
Unlike the other pipe boot, this one is a metal roof pipe boot but was still old and beginning to dry rot so we replaced it with this new one.Go To Pin
- 4Serious chimney issues
This chimney was built without a cricket so all the water runs down and against the back of the chimney causing the wood to rot out.
I removed some of the rotted wood and slid a piece of metal behind the wood. Then I put a piece over the front of the wood. This will keep out most of the water but this chimney needs to be rebuilt when the roof is replaced next. Which won’t be too long.Go To Pin

- 6Sealing up holes in old caulk
This is a kind of a makeshift diverter someone did to divert the water from this area as you can see there are holes in the caulk.
We cleaned this area very well and used clear NP1 to re-seal these areas. All the debris after cleaning out the area to be sealed.
The new clear sealant is hard to see but it is there. It shows up a bit shinier than the old caulk.Go To Pin
