Case Studies: Leaky Roof in Knoxville, TN

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 by Kyler Headrick


In most cases, leaks come from a penetration to the roof, maybe a pipe vent, chimney or even a puncture in the roof.
This is the problems with Chimney's. Most people will think "I'll just caulk it" or i've heard the expression "There is no such thing as too much caulk" a million times.
Most of the time there is a simple fix that doesn't require you to over load a tube of caulk all around your chimney.

Here's an example of a chimney that needs to be re-flashed.


Our chimney flashing that we do is actually to cut into the brick or stone and put a lip or flage of the metal inside the cutout of the chimney with one straight clean look. Our step flashing goes under this as well and gives you a good protection against these leaks.
This has always been a go to solution for chimney leaks for us.
