Roof leak at a low slope Valley in West Knoxville. These roofs are about 10 years old and were installed after a hailstorm. The area of concern is a 1.8 to 12 pitch roof. This section of roof is lower than the recommended slope for shingles. So one of the solutions that we were recommend to resolve this roof leak is a membrane roof over the low slope area. Membrane roofing is traditionally thought of as a commercial style roof or a rubber roof. This roofing material will go underneath the shingles on the surrounding slope, and cover the flat portions of this roof.
The next solution that we mention will be much cheaper and easier but will not have the same level of confidence for resolving this roof leak issue, that is to caulk all of the shingle unions, caulking the facia returns, and caulking any penetrations seal up everything where the water can spread or leak anywhere on this low slope roofing material. Several people have been out and attempted to resolve this roof leak and their repairs hav not worked yet, but these are two very viable solution that have a good chance of working to resolve this problem.
This solution made it very easy to have a roof it stopped leaking.
This project added cost to each single union so that the shingle unions would not leak this will be a very simple solution hopefully this resolves this roof leak on this low slope roof after 7 inches of rain we’re fairly confident that this resolve the problem
The rest of this project was completed by lightspeed construction installers we did a great job and stop the roof leak it was a terrific project and the customers were extremely happy because we resolve the problems.
