Aliso Viejo Roof Chimney Leak

 

Aliso Viejo Roof Chimney Leak.  Above pictures show what we first saw when we went up on the roof to see what might be the problem.  When we are called out because of a reported roof leak we try our best to find any easy or obvious problem that we could solve that would possibly fix the roof.  If we do not see any defects to the roof or damage that could be a leak source then we will have to do leak detection and track the leak to it’s source.  Here we found no broken tiles, the mortar in good shape, and all the flashing appeared to be in order.

We will have to remove the roof from around the chimney (about 3-4 feet in every direction) and do leak detection procedure to find the roof leak source.

All tile removed from around the chimney

The first parts of the roof to have leaking problem is the valleys, skylights, and chimney or fireplace boxes.  These areas can handle a lot of water and they have some detail flashing work that needs to be very well in order for the roof not to fail here.  The leak coming into the house was a small on and made a very small (baseball) sized brownish stain on the master bedroom ceiling.  I had wanted the customer this is a sign of roof failure around or very near to the chimney (which is directly above the ceiling damage) and that we would need to at least remove the tile and flashing around the chimney to rule it out or find the problem.

Chimney Repair all materials removed down to the deck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With everything removed we could see water stains on the plywood just below satellite dish (not related to the dish).  The plywood was carefully checked and was deemed okay after all nails were re-pounded into the deck.  All new felt, waterproofing was installed back in place and roof flashing was fabricated on the spot and everything was put back together in a manner to outlast the whole rest of the existing roof covering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the end we found a problem with the original stucco around the chimney was causing the initial water intrusion under the flashing and felt paper and that is what wore out the felt (roofing) paper near the front left corner of the chimney and caused the leak in the master bedroom.  After all the felt and flashing was replaced we repaired the stucco and put everything back together.  The repair we did will outlast the whole rest of the roof.  Our warranty is “No Leak” 5 year warranty.  The best you’ll find.
