San Juan Capistrano Tile Roof Repair
Updated: Aug 26, 2021
This is a roof repair near a chimney area that I completed in the city of San Juan Capistrano. This section of the home leaked by the chimney area due to a build up of debris that blocked the proper water flow off the roof.
When debris impedes the flow of water from running its course, the blockage deviates water into other areas. Water will pool and drip into other directions, seeping under tiles, saturating the area, until it penetrates all the layers of the roofing system.
To fix the leak, I removed and stacked the tile in the area before tearing off the rotten underlayment and plywood. I installed new plywood and 2 new layers of ASTM #30. Around the chimney, I installed new roof to wall, step, and saddle flashings. Finally I reinstalled the same tile and birdstop.
Keeping the roof clean from debris is a small but important step in preventing leaks and ensuring the longevity of your roof. The proper installation of metal flashings and tiles is vital to directing the flow of water and air flow on the roof.
