Roof Replacement and
Roof Repair Specialist(703) 475-2446
Hi, this is Steve from Roofer 911.
I'm on a roof in Ashburn Virginia, and the homeowner has a leak where the lower roof meets up against the wall directly below that downspout. Now, one thing I tell my customers all the time, wherever you see the water stain inside your home, it doesn't mean that the leak is originating from directly above on a roof.
She got other estimates from other contractors and they were saying all you have to do is just seal where the roof meets up against the J channel with caulk and that will resolve the problem.
Little did they understand that, that leak could be starting from all the way up above and then the water is travelling underneath the shingles. Wherever the water finds an opening, that's where it will settle, and usually the water settles at the lowest point, and that's where the shingle roof and the metal roof meet.
The only way to resolve this problem is to remove all the roof material where the roof and the wall meet, repair or replace any damaged step flashing, and then re-shingle this area.
The ridge vent here has nothing to do with the leak, the ridge vent is fine. Once these procedures are done, this leak is over and done with.
