Cedar Roof Repair - Langley 006

We have the skills it takes to finish the job right.  No matter what the material is, we can work with it.  On this repair, the customer wanted to add another large room onto there house.  This will be the third addition.  1/2” tapersawn shingles were used on this 5/12 pitch tie in.  At the “dead valley” or “low slope area”, we chose to use a “2 ply torch on system” as well as “sand/base” for fireproofing.  After carefully tearing off the existing cedar shingles, and the nails, we were ready to start installing the new cedar.  One must be very careful not to damage the existing “felt paper” or “tar paper”, as it is a key factor in keeping the roof waterproof.  All and all the repair went very well.  It looks very nice and the cedar shingles will start to blend with each other after a few years.  New attic exhaust vents were added, these vents will ensure the roof lasts a long time.  It is important to have proper soffit ventilation as well.  The soffit is the area under your roof overhangs.  These lower areas are used for fresh air intake.

This chimney will never leak, we guarantee it.   Multiple layers of protection ensure the water flows of exactly the way we want it to.  For this chimney we had to use EPDM rubber combined with metal back pans on the rears sides.  All the water is guided onto the torch-on valley.  This torch-on is “stripped” in for maximum protection.  Both the smooth layer of torch-on underneath and the granulated layer on top are stripped in.  Later the siding will be finished.  We suggest having us come back to clean off the roof once a year.

Chimney Top Repair

Chimney Top Replacement

Does your chimney look like the one on the left?  Chances are it’s leaking.

We will replace the top pan.  Taller sides help to protect and cover the existing exposed wood.  No need to paint in the future.

Condensation causes the pan to drip into the chimney cavity.  We eliminate this by sloping our pans to the outside.  We also ventilate the chimney to almost eliminate the moisture caused by the hot pipes inside.

Total cost to the customer is $400.00 + HST.
