Knoxville Roofers Proposes Roof Replacement vs. Repair; Owner Chooses to Replace Old Roof

Roof repairs to chimney, skylight, and several locations.  The property owners ultimately decided against doing the repairs and got the entire roof replaced.


This project used GAF Timberline HDZ shingles with Slate color.  This project had several boards that we replaced, and the owners of this property are very, very pleased with the results.

Several Roof Repairs Should Lead to Roof Replacement

  1. 1
    Skylight Need to be Reflashed

    To stop this roof leak, this skylight needs to be reflashed. The skylight can be maintained to save on costs.

    Boxing in Back Section of Roof

    Boxing in this section of the roof with siding makes the most sense.

    We are going to boxes in and use Siding to cover this gap so that animals can’t get in here

    Gutter Guards Pushing up Shingles

    The rear gutters need to be repitched, and a downspout is added.  This will prevent these gutter guards from pushing up the shingles.

    The rear of the roof had problems with the gutter guards pushing the edges of the shingles up does it cause roof leaks prior
