Hi. This is Steve from Roofer 911.
I'm at a home in Manassas, Virginia, and I wanted to make this video, so this way you can see the importance of having an infrared scan done by Roofer 911. Now, the homeowner originally complained about having a leak in this area here, but when I turned the camera on, I noticed she had a lot more problems than that's noticeable to the naked eye.
This damage here was caused here was caused by improper installation of the step flashing up against the chimney. The contractors drove nails through the flashing by nailing the shingles too close to the brickwork itself, and that's what caused the leak, but also we checked the crown on the top of the chimney as well, and there were large cracks. That wasn't attributing to the leak here, but instead it was causing water to seep down into the fireplace. We're going to rebuild the crown and take care of the step flashing.
Now, when I scanned further, I noticed she had more moisture damage over here and also it went up further here, so all this moisture here has nothing to do with the chimney but instead the ridge vent, the open breathing space underneath was cut too wide. We need to close it up a little bit, and then we're going to do the proper waterproofing procedures underneath and then reinstall a new ridge vent. Once we're done everything, this leak is over and done with.
