Roof Jack Leaks are one of the most common necessary roof repairs that we see. Whether its varmint damage or simply UV breakdown of the pipe jack once this type of leak occurs on an exterior wall the invading water may travel the pipe all the way to the bottom wall plate. This saturation of the wall plate is a dinner bell for termites and may be undetectable until the damage is extensive. The required repair is to replace the pipe boot or jack along with any potentially damaged plywood decking and immediately located shingles.
Improperly installed or missing wall flashings can also result in roof leaks. It’s important that your roofing company replace all wall flashings when you have a new roof installed. One of the ugly tricks of some less than reputable companies is to not replace chimney and wall flashings to keep their bid price low and obtain the job or after landing the job the company just simply doesn’t replace the flashing to bolster their profits knowing that many homeowners overlook this important detail. These are terrible roofing practices and certainly dishonest. Check your roofing company’s references and if possible inspect your roof personally to ensure that all flashings have been indeed replaced so that you don’t suffer leaks as a result. The roof repairs that may be required later may be costly, so take the time to know your roofer.
Trimming back close overhanging limbs can prevent eventual roof repairs as a result of chaffing shingles or dead limbs falling that may damage shingles even puncture the decking surface altogether. This is usually a simple tip that can save a roof repair from being required later.
