Laguna Niguel Tile Roof Leak Repair

6 Thornapple, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

Customer: Pritchard Residence

Job Type: Tile roof leak repair, small flat roof replacement

Roofing Problem : We were called out to do a roof inspection at the Pritchard residence because of a reported roof leak into their garage. The Pritchard’s were getting water damage to the garage ceiling.

Roof Type: Standard weight, flat, concrete roofing tile (brushed shake), and a completely flat rock roof over the garage.

Solution: Remove the flat rock roof completely. We even stripped the decking so that we could frame a new appropriately pitched deck surface. The existing roof deck was to flat to install new roof over. With the roofing and decking removed we were able to identify inadequate framing and bracing under the deck and we repaired. The deck is now super strong and the pitched is good enough to last a lifetime. With the decking work completed we took to the task of installing a Certainteed self adhered commercial grade roll roof system over the same area. We did not re-use the existing flashing like most contractors do. We had some custom fabricated to match the pitch we designed. We finished the roof off with a brown colored self adhered cap sheet to make the roof look good from any angle.

The second part of the roof leak was stemming from the tile roof directly below the flat roof that we replaced. The flat roof was leaking under the tile roof and because of that we removed all of the tile beneath the flat deck all the way down to the edge. This allowed us to check the decking and repair it as needed. The damaged felt paper was removed and replaced and properly tied into the existing roof in a permanent manner and the tiles that we carefully stacked aside for later re-use were then put back in place. Problems solved.


Take a look below and see how it came out. Keep in mind we always take pictures of our work. That is because we take great pride in the level of work we do for you. And, we want you to have the piece of mind that everything we promised was done and done correctly.

Laguna Niguel Roof Repair

2 Thornapple, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

Customer: Chun Residence

Job Type: Tile roof repair

Roofing Problem : We were called out to do a roof inspection at the Chun residence because of a reported roof leak. The Chun were getting water damage to the interior ceiling in an upstairs spare bedroom and also the upstairs hallway bathroom.

Roof Type: Standard weight, flat, concrete roofing tile (brushed shake)

Solution: Identify the two areas on the roof that were directly related to the inside ceiling damage. The roof needed to be significantly repaired in both areas. The first area turned out to be a problem with the chimney flashing. We completely all the roofing tiles, all the flashing, and all of the roofing felt from around the chimney. We were then able to determine that the leak was confined to the area we had removed. With that knowledge we installed a layer of ice and water shield around the chimney, new roofing felt, and then custom fabricate new chimney flashing. With the water proofing done we were then able to re-use the existing tile that we had carefully stacked aside for later re-use and used them to put the roof back together in its original condition.

Roof Leak DetectionThe second roof leak turned out to be centered in a valley. A valley is an area of the roof where two sides meet at about a 45 degree angle. The valley catches and directs the water either off the roof completely or back on top of the roof tiles where it can safely run off the roof. Valley leak for a number of reason and they are very tricky to repair. If you don’t do enough to fix the valley you will end up fixing it again. If you suspect your tile roof has a leak in either the valley or around a chimney call us and you can be sure it will get done correctly.
