Aluminum Ridge Vent Leak Repair In Woodbridge, VA

 

 

Hi, this is Steve from Roofer 911.

I'm at a home in Woodbridge, Virginia, and they have a few different leaks. Now, the first one is the ridge vent. When I look at this, I see all these nails that are holding the ridge vent in to place, and that's unnecessary because all they had to do is just fasten into the rafters. The reason why they have a leak is because it was never sealed underneath.

We're going to take this ridge vent off. It's about, maybe, 40 feet. Once the ridge vent is off, then we're going to shield the deck heavy with polyurethane, then the new ridge vent will be pressed right into the seal, and then very important, we're going to fasten right in to the rafters.

Yeah, they have another problem over here and it's just a matter of time before they have a leak. You can see the rubber collar has collapsed, so we're going to just seal that with polyurethane. Also, they have another leak at this other vent pipe flange, and I'll show you why.

Here you can see the metal flashing is all exposed here on the side, so when there's a heavy, melting snow, the water can very easily seep underneath the flashing and then leak inside the house.

The pipe still is in good condition, so we can reuse the flange. We're going to remove all the roofing completely around the pipe, seal the flashing with ice and water shield, and then re-shingle it. Also, we're going to seal the rubber collar with polyurethane because that's the first thing that goes. You can see it's starting to deteriorate a little bit here, so within a few years they will have a leak.

That's it. Everything else is good. Homeowner mentioned they had some additional rotted plywood, but everything is, oops, there it is. Yeah, right here there is a soft piece of wood.

Now, I want to show you something. The water is traveling underneath the roof, and eventually it's going to cause the plywood here to rot too. You can see the shingles are starting to lift up ever so slightly right there, so if this ridge vent is not taken care of, this is going to be the next area where they're going to have a leak and damaged plywood.

Again, my name is Steve from Roofer 911, and if you have any questions whatsoever, I can be reached at 703-475-2446, and we specialize in roof repair in Woodbridge and all areas of Northern Virginia. Thank you.
