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.
