ROOF REPAIR CHIMNEY LEAK KING OF PRUSSIA

Roof Repair

XL HOME IMPROVEMENTS WAS CALLED OUT ON AN EMERGENCY ROOF REPAIR ON A SUNDAY MORNING TO CHECK OUT A LEAK THAT WAS DRIPPING INTO A BEDROOM.

WE INSTALLED A ROOF REPAIR FOR THE NIGHT AND WENT OUT THE NEXT MORNING TO DO A PROPER REPAIR.

IN THIS CASE THE CRICKET ON THE BACK OF THE CHIMNEY WAS SHINGLED BACKWARDS BY THE ORIGINAL ROOFERS. THE CRICKET SHINGLES SHOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER THE MAIN ROOF SHINGLES AT THE TRANSITION AREA AS NOT TO IMPEDE WATER FLOW.

PICTURE BELOW SHOWS  THE CRICKET TO HAVE BEEN SHINGLED INCORRECTLY.
