Wet Deck Roof


Hello!
I thought I would post an update to this saga... Unfortunately it didn't have a happy ending, with the contractor doing right, and all issues resolved. It's still ongoing, but now its not a work issue, its a resolution issue with lawyers involved.

The concise version:
It's going to have to be re-roofed. The water issues came to light again in July 2012, not to long after he bolted yet again, pretty much leaving my home a trashed mess. He also didn't have the necessary inspections for the roof. Unfortunately, the roof is not the only issue. I'm knee deep in preparing a lengthy complaint to the contractor's board as well. It's the story that keeps on giving, but not in a good way.

So for those, who still saw issues, you were right! I again thank you for all of your valuable input that was given.

Yet another visit by a structural engineer was necessary, and a couple more roofing professionals have also been here. And to boot, this all brought to light my siding isn't installed correctly, and my doors are not flashed.

It's hard to believe that we are steadily approaching three years since this mess began.

At least now, in the end, there is the one saving grace that it will be eventually done properly, and that at some point, there will be an end to this nightmare.

While the flood in itself that set this rebuild in motion was a very bad experience, I would rather live through that a 100 times over, then ever go through a rebuild again.

I, however,look forward to in the end finally being able to post pictures of my properly done roof.

Thanks for updating us. We do like to hear how things turn out with people posting here. Unfortunately, just like people's roofs, once the problem is solved we get ignored and forgotten and it really makes us sad...

Wet Deck Roof


Things wrong.

1. The panels are through fastened and the wrong type. These look like wall panels, not roof panels. They look really thin also.

2. The upper end of the panels should have been turned up. Cant tell what they did.

3. The upper end shoud have had a Z cleat, ant an apron flashing should have been run up under the shingle roof and been enveloped with ice dams flashing.

4. Need tight shot of flashing at base of chimney but its a pretty good chance its wrong. They would need sleepers and another deck over the T1-11 to be able to fasten the clips for a proper standing seam roof to be fastened.

THE NOMENCLATURE CDX WAS DISCONTINUED IN THE EARLY 60'S WHEN PANEL MANUFACTURERS DECIDED TO STOP USING INTERIOR GLUE. IT IS NOW 2013

IT HAS BEEN CD-EXPOSURE 1 FOR OVER 50 YEARS. GET WITH THE PROGRAM VERNE.
