Forum Title: How Much to just REPAIR it she said
She wanted a repair only. Took me inside the house and showed me 8 leaks. Including around all the skylights, the chimney, the dead spot below the two big joined skylights and several other places all throughout the home. I had to explain to her that any money spent on a repair would just be a waste and there was no way I could guarantee it. I gave her a price to rip it all back off, eliminate the skylights, Install a large aluminum flashing pan at the long dead spot, properly flash the chimney and change out all the base flashings on every pipe, vent, etc. When I showed her the price, her eye balls rolled back so far you could only see the whIt's! This is a TWO year old roof done by a storm chaser that has split town. Drip edge was not overlapped at the bottoms most of the way around the whole house and no over hang on the membrane either. Bad news. very poor skylight work Base flashing needed replaced on the vent, extremely excessive tar used instead. 4 x 4 wall flashing installed behind skylights. More 4 x 4 wall flashing, installed on TOP of the membrane and the OUTSIDE of the siding. drip edge on rakes is only 1 inch wide and membrane is NOT stuck to it. somebody didn't know how to install a pipe flashing around a utility pole without the help of the power company.
