Litespeed Construction is a Knoxville Roofing Company and we determined that there are ventilation issues with this roof that are causing the boards of this roof to leak.  One of the most important things for a roofing company to inspect is how the roof breathes and ventilates.

 

This home has a vaulted ceiling and there’s no ventilation for this roof coming from the soffit to the ridge. The west-facing portion of this home has warping roof deck boards that at first glance might appear to just be bad decking. The real culprit for this issue is improper roof ventilation!

 

This property is located in the Hardin Valley area, this is a suburb of Knoxville TN.

    Roof Deck Boards Need to be Removed

    On the rear portion of the roof, the deck boards will need to be removed and replaced to add back the insulation channels. These deck boards at the west-facing slope of the roof are warping as a result of bad Ventilation.
