Field Report, June 21 2011:

The client’s roof was a cedar shake tear-off/conversion about 20 to 25 years old and was already showing major signs of deterioration, most likely because of the area’s humidity. The flashing on the skylight had been improperly installed, causing it to leak on the top and staining the ceiling on the inside. We wrapped it up the curbs with Ice & Water shield and installed new coloured skylight flashing. Since the main house was a vaulted ceiling, the moisture that was coming in would have went right down the drywall and followed it down all the way to the bottom. Also, because of the vaulted ceilings, the insulation was up close to the sheeting and there were no air vents installed. We cut in and installed two air roof vents one two of the roof’s dormers – both of which had less than 100 ft. of air space.

As you can see from the photos below, the finished Cambridge IKO dual-black shingle roof has great architectural style, especially with the high profile shingle cap.
