Owner called us out to look at a leak on a metal roof. Once on the roof it was pretty obvious what the problem was. In these pictures you will see what’s causing the problem.
- 1Water getting trapped between metal
In this picture you can see that the transition metal makes a downward swoop as it goes under the upper metal. This is creating a dam and the water is filling up under the metal and going up the roof and over the transition metal. This is how the water is getting under the metal and causing it to leakGo To Pin
- 2No closures
under this section of roofing there should be closures. They are foam inserts that keep of wind blown rain, bugs and small animals. Here are examples of that they look like and where they go.Go To Pin
