Question about stabilizing and bracing mast on roof of my house


I'm gonna include pictures at the bottom, but I have a roof mast with serious sag and it's leaking g in the attic when it rains. I'm going to be replacing 2 sections of flat roof on my house? And when I do I want to stabilize this mast and seal it off good to keep it stable and keep it waterproof. The lines coming g out of the mast are coming from the house, to the separated garage. I don't believe this is something a power company is responsible for, it was just negligence by the previous owner. I know burying it is ideal, but it's not in the budget. Thanks!

This is a "replace" problem, not a "repair".

Whole deck looks questionable.

Question about stabilizing and bracing mast on roof of my house


Is that mast pipe bent or just pulled over? It should extend inside the bldg along a solid wall and be braced securely to that wall. The only support it should need on the roof is a guy-wire extending in the opposite direction as the powerline if even that. That one doesn't look tall enough that it should require even that.

Putting braces and brackets on the roof not only shouldn't be necessary but they are messy and leak-prone. I would say your problem isn't on the roof. You should look below for your proper solution. After that a simple lead boot is your only necessity on the roof.

Thanks for the reply, I believe I need to crawl up into the attic and see if maybe some bracing or brackets came out of a stud or something. gonna have a look and see what I figure out.
