This roof had a lot going on, excessive granular loss, nail pops, high nailed shingles, delaminating shingles, improperly installed pipe boots and more.

Front valley

  1. 1
    Delaminated and missing shingle

    This area is missing a shingle due to delamination.  Delamination is the process in which one shingle comes apart and breaks into 2 pieces. The top section and the bottom section

    More delamination

    More areas of delamination this is due to the high nailed nails.
    here are a few pictures of the nails being too high

    rusting nails are also signs of water under the shingles and this is due to the missing shingle just above this area.

    Holes in ridge cap

    The small holes in the ridge cap are due to the crack in the ridge cap shingles.

    Missing shingles.

    Here is another area with missing/delaminated shingles. They used metal or flashing to temporarily fix this issue.

    This pipe boot is not installed correctly and they didn’t even mail it down leaving the bottom popping up about 2 inches.

    Improperly installed pipe boot again

    Same thing as the other side. Not nailed down and it needs a rubber cover over it as well

Repairs on roof

  1. 1
    Replacing old brittle shingles

    This section of the roof took the most time and was very very difficult due to the steepness of the roof, how brittle the shingles were and the fact that the granules would wipe right off the shingles from just the smallest amount of pressure. We originally only had to replace one or two shingles in this spot but the shingles kept breaking on us so we just kept replacing them. When we finished this area it was a major success so we were very happy with the outcome!

    Valley shingles

    Also very tough to repair due to the brittleness of the shingles. We only put a few nails in the far right side away from the valley and glued the left side of the shingles that were closest to the valley to keep from putting holes right there.  We did however find that the roof had nails way too close to the valley some nails were almost in the valley. This will cause future leaks. So we did caulk under the shingles where we found nails.

    Top of ridge repair

    I was originally going to just put caulk over the top of this but decided to put the tip of the caulk gun in the main hole and pumped it inside the hole until it started coming out. This basically filled up the entire hole and crack. Then went over the top with more sealant. Plus we sealed the top of the exposed nails as well

    Hip shingles had lots of nail pops

    As you can see in the pictures there were a lot of nail pops in this section of roof. The nails were hammered back in place and then we sealed up the holes.

    Unions lined up

    This was one of the simple fixes we just slid a piece of flashing underneath both shingles and used sealant to seal up the crack

    Replacing shingle

    While replacing the shingle we noticed that the transition metal was warping and buckling so we decided to cut the metal vertically so it could overlap itself and lay down flat. we then sealed that cut and installed a new shingle over the metal.

    Replacing shingle

    On this side we replaced a delaminating shing just like we did on the opposite side of the dormer and except the transition metal was fine on this side and didn’t need to be cut.

    Pipe boot

    We sealed underneath the right and left side of the pipe boot, nailed it down, sealed over top of the nail heads and slipped a new rubber sleeve on top
