Rental cabin needs repair work Sevierville, TN.

Dimensional shingles with lots of moss

  1. 1
    lots of moss

    Moss growing on old shingle roof

    The root system of moss grows up between the shingles. This causes water to wick under the shingles resulting in rusted nails and water penetration into the roof.

    Pipe boot not installed correctly

    This is a picture of a pipe boot and the pipe coming out of the roof This is a picture of a pipe boot and the pipe coming out of the roof

    This pipe boot was installed by just ripping a hole in the shingles and on top of that it's not nailed down, letting windblown rain penetrate the roof.

    Broken tree limb on roof

    Rotten tree limb broke and scattered across the roof causing superficial damage to shingles. At first, I was sure this limb had punctured the roof but luckily it just scraped it up and messed up the tabs on the dimensional shingles. The pictures at the top will show some of the damages This is a picture of a broken shingle  This is a picture of a broken shingle.

    roof decking popping up.

    One of the pieces of roof decking has popped up and freed itself from the nails. This has lifted the shingles just enough to let the wind in between the 2 layers further breaking more shingle seals. In the bottom picture, you can see a rusted nail so there is water getting under the shingles.  This is a picture showing the incorrect placement of the shingles. This is a picture of worn out shingles that are lifting. This is a picture of worn out shingles that are lifting.

    rain diverter not properly installed

    This rain diverter is flush with the shingles that it’s up against. This can allow water to back under the shingles. It should be installed on an angle shown here as the red lineThis is a picture of the incorrect angle of water flow.

bad roofing repair jobs, plus nail pops, and bad pipe boots

  1. 1
    Bad shingle repair job

    Each red arrow points to a shingle union. A union is where 2 shingles butt together. A shingle should be on a 6-inch stagger. This way the shingle unions don’t come close to lining up. This patch job was done terribly wrong. Some of these shingles are only very small pieces for some reason, and all the unions are right on top of each other.

    ripped shingle to install pipe boot

    As you can see this pipe boot was installed exactly like the other one. The shingle was just torn and then the pipe boot wasn’t even nailed. You should also notice that the edge of the shingle is right at the edge of the pipe boot. The chances of water getting in here are is about 80%.

    Roof repairs

    In this section, I am going to post pictures that were scattered around different things that need attention or fixed. The top picture is just more mold growing on the roof. The next one down is buckled shingles on the edged of another poor attempt at a repair. 2nd one down shows a low nail where someone nailed the shingle way too low exposing the nail head. The bottom picture shows a torn shingle possibly from the wind but more than likely from a poor install. 1
