Common Roofing Questions

No. Unfortunately, there are some things tar just can’t fix. This damage was discovered after removing 3 layers of roofing, to then find that no step flashing was added where the roof and siding meet- Add an additional 2 layers of roofing to that problem and you’ve got yourself a massive headache to deal with.

Faulty Roofing Examples

No flashing or water-proofing was added to this section of the roof.

This is section of roofing is called a valley. These areas are typically where you will find sitting water and/or snow to pile up. These compromised areas require special attention and the expertise of a professional roofer that knows exactly how to combat these potential leaks.

Adding Tar

No step or counter flashing.

Here’s an example of what just adding tar looks like. There is no step or counter flashing on this chimney, just tar to fill a1″ void between the shingle and brick. Sad!


Tar Applications

Years of Failed Tar Applications.

This is years of tar applications, some kind of mesh-paper, and countless attempts at stopping a leak with silicone. Sometimes adding multiple layers of solvent will actually do the opposite of what was intended. Water now has no escape route and will more than likely start to pool up where it shouldn’t.
