Orange County Chimney Leak Repair

Orange County Leaking Chimney Repair Company

The photo to the right shows a typical concrete tile roof found all over Orange County. Concrete tile roofs come in three basic shapes or styles. The one shown is called flat tile. The roof install for all tile is basically the same but the roof repair techniques necessary to repair a roof leak will be different.

Orange County Roof Repairs

Tile roof repairs may sound quick and easy but often they are not!

Typically, when I am called out to inspect the roof due to a roof leak I will go up on the roof and check it out. A lot of times the roof looks normal with no physical signs of damaged that would cause the roof to leak.

In this case of a roof leaking from around a chimney or fireplace the problem is often the flashing needs to be removed and replaced. This can involve a significant amount of the roofing tiles, felt and flashing to be removed in order to fully uncover the exact leak source and check for any damaged decking or plywood.

Roof Leaking Near the Chimney Result in Drywall and Mold Damage

Believe it or not but a lot of roofers don't like to remove the old roofing felt and flashing. They will go right over it! This saves them time and money. And, you get a cheaper roof repair that wont last. Repairing your roof like we do is a lot more work than just removing some tiles and re-papering the area.

As you can see from the photo roof leaks cause a lot of hidden damage. The water damage you see to the plywood was caused by a tiny water stain on the ceiling of the master bedroom. This tiny leak caused mold damage to the wood, decking, and insulation.

Dry rot or Termite damaged wood replacement is a must do with the roof removed.

The photo shows how your roof deck should look before any waterproofing starts. Removing the roofing paper and putting new felt paper down is only half the job. The necessary plywood inspection must be done and any mold damaged plywood must be removed. This will make the roof repair much more expensive.

Whenever you do things the right way it is always more money upfront but, in the long run you save a lot of money by not having to do the roof repairs a second time. Our prices are extremely competitive.
