Terrible Roof Job

A terrible roof job is an issue we come across as a roof contractor a few times a year. This job by a previous roofer is why the homeowner called us to fix the mess. The pictures show the inexperience of a roofer who caused more damage. 


The Solution

After removing all the bad roof material a self-adhered Flintlastic SA system by Certainteed was installed. The system has a base material that adheres to the roof deck. Then a white cap sheet material is installed over the base.


The Shingle Tie-in

When using the Flintlastic SA roof system along with a pitched roof, it’s crucial to ensure the tie-in is done correctly. Regardless of whether the roof has metal, tile, or shingles, the tie-in process remains the same. The flat roof material must always be installed a minimum of 16″ up the rake and under the roof material on the pitched roof. Ideally, we aim to install as much as 24″ under the pitched material. For this particular roof, we removed four rows of shingles, ran flat roof material up the rake and under the shingles, and then installed new matching shingles in Resawn Shake color.

The finished Flintlastic SA roof system now looks professionally done and the roof will no longer leak.
