This defective chimney had large pieces blow off in a heavy wind causing major roof damage. In addition to this homeowners misfortune this roof was recently installed by an unqualified contractor who never installed any ice and water barrier or new led flashing around the base of the chimney, nor did they install ice and water barrier in the valleys or properly nail the shingles according to building codes causing the roof to have several leaks and several shingles to blow off. This homeowner explained to me that after several attempts to contact the previous contractor, the contractor refused to return to correct the problems which he created in this roof.

Notice the shingles in the valley are not weaved properly and are blowing off and throughout the roof shingles are blowing off due to inadequate nailing.

The previous contractor unsuccessfully tried supplementing led flashing with roof cement causing major leaking around this chimney

This was their idea of flashing.

The previous contractor installed no ice and water barrier or new led flashing. This valley and chimney is ready for me to properly re-flash and re-shingle.

This is God’s country

Yes, I’ll climb to any height to complete a job. And yes this bundle of shingles is heavy.

Ice and water barrier installed throughout the valley and around the chimney and continuing up the chimney to act as counter-flashing no.1

A well weaved valley will never leak nor will shingles ever blow off.

 

The roof shingles are extended up the chimney as a second form of flashing.

This is a properly flashed chimney with new led flashing and new shingles weaved around the chimney and up the valley. This chimney will never leak again.

 

This valley and two other valleys were successfully completed within days and never leaked again. The best ending to this story was that I convinced his homeowners insurance to pay for all of this work and all of his interior work as well. Good luck in the future Robert. It was a pleasure.
