This week we were in the East end of London Ontario at a residential home. The client had a couple of issues that needed attention. One section of their shingled roof had been leaking, due to aged shingles, and a poor slope on their roof, which was causing piles of snow to sit on the roof, as well as have water freeze and lift the shingles.
Another issue was that their flat roof section needed to be repaired and replaced, however the flat roof tied into the shingled section. You can watch our video as to how we tied it in so that there is a strong waterproof crossover between the two surfaces.
For the shingled section we peeled off all the shingles and felt paper in that area and put down peel and stick ice and water shield to eliminate the issue with pooling and freezing water.
For the flat roof we took off the old surface, put new sopaboard down, and installed new drip flashing, but we left the eaves troughs in because it would save the clients money and they were in good condition (we do our best to save you money!).
To tie in the flat and shingle roof we removed 3 rows of shingles and brought the membrane up under those layers to ensure that no water would get through those layers.
We are really happy with the project, the weather was great to get it all done in one day, and you can hear what the client thought of the project here.
