    Old Roof and bad pipe boots vs the new

    As you can see the old roof is an old 3 tab shingle that's worn out just like pipe boots. The rubber on the pipe boots is even dry rotted and cracking

    This is a picture of the roof showing the pipe boots on the roof.

    In this beautiful picture you can see we installed a beautiful owens corning estate grey dimensional shingle with brand new pipe boots on all 5 pipes. Yes thats correct I said 5 pipes. Not all of them are in this picture but they all got new pipe boots. This is standard on any roof we do!

    This is a view of the roof with gray shingles and white pipe boots.

    3 New Velux Skylights installed on this roof.

    If your skylights are over 10 plus years old and you are replacing your roof it's a very good idea to replace the skylights as well. As you can see these turned out great and the homeowner loved them. You can actually see in this picture the old skylights are slightly fogged up. This is due to the airtight seal breaking and letting moisture in between the 2 layers of glass

    This is a view of a roof with no shingles, showing the deck boards and 2 skylights.

    As you can see these 3 new skylights turned out great and the homeowners love them. Velux makes an amazing skylight system. When using the correct flash kits they are seriously leak proof!

    How to correctly roof this area without it leaking like it use to

    So originally the shingles went underneath the metal porch roof and the previous roofer used sealant to make it waterproof. Well, that didn't work. The owner said it leaked ever since he added the porch roof.

    This is an image of the roof with exposed wood and metal.

    We thought about using a rubber membrane but decided against it as using a large section of valley metal would have a much higher likelihood to leak. Here is the section of metal we had bent. We put a 2 inch rise in the middle instead of the standard 1 inch rise and we made each side 16 inches wide with a 1/2 inch open hem. My metal guy said it the largest valley metal he's ever made. 

    This is a picture of 2 pieces of metal on the ground.

    Here is what it looked like after we pulled up the metal panels to cut them. You can see the old shingles on the roof go under the wood for the porch roof

    This is a picture of a metal roof with exposed wood beams.

    Here is what it looked like after we installed it. We marked the metal panels and popped a straight line on it and then we took off the metal roofing panels and cut 4 inches off it.  Laid the valley metal down and sealed each side. Then we laid the shingles and the metal panels down on top of the valley metal.

    This is a marked up photo of the valley of the roof.

    This is a view of the roof with gray shingles and the valley is pictured here.

    A few pictures of a perfect 6 inch stagger

    Most standard or architectural/dimensional shingles are supposed to be on a 6-inch stagger. This is a perfect example

    This is a picture of the shingles stagger on the roof.
