In roofing, each house is unique and requires special attention to areas that are considered leak prone, which includes chimneys. A chimney can be found in different locations on a roof, which each require different attention, to ensure water does not penetrate the roof line. A chimney in the middle of a roof, at the bottom of a roof, or in a valley all require special techniques to ensure long lasting water protection.
Chapman Construction specializes in properly sealing chimneys with step flashing, counter flashing, and in some cases building custom valleys to divert the water flow. The building up of the roof line, is called a Cricket or saddle. This new ridge is added to a roof to keep water from pooling up against the chimney, where it would be more likely to leak inside the home.
Chimneys positioned at the low side of the roof, along the eave, typically requires the addition of a cricket. A chimney that is located at the peak or ridge of the roof, does not always require this additional protection. In addition, just because your roof may not have a cricket now, it may be recommended to provide the best long term protection against the elements.
Any penetration point in your roof is considered a leak prone area and should be the first place you look when trying to locate a leak. Pipe vents are the most common type of penetration found on a roof and are from bathrooms, dryers, and some high efficient HVAC units. Each PVC pipe is typically wrapped in a boot and rubber doughnut. However, these boots can leak over the years.
Hot summers can eventually crack and tear the rubber seal around your vent pipe. These should be inspected every year, to keep you from finding out, after the fact, that you have a roof leak. In addition, when the rubber separates, water will enter your attic space and typically track down a rafter. This allows the water to enter your ceiling from a place far away from where the actual leak took place. Just because the leak is not showing up in your home directly below the vent pipe, inspect anyway, this may solve your problem.
A new roof can provide safety and security for your home and family. However, a roof does not consist of shingles alone, but many roofing components that create a barrier to the weather, while allowing harmful elements to escape your attic and home. It’s important for any roofer to understand the components they work with, to ensure that your home’s HVAC and other ventilation is properly installed.
All roofing penetrations must be suitably removed, installed, and inspected when you receive a new roof. This includes common pvc vents, furnace flues, and chimneys that must all be either replaced or repaired. When having a new roof installed, confirm with the contractor that the vent boots are being replaced and properly sealed. For furnace flues, make sure the roofing contractor understands the components they are working with, to allow the proper ventilation of harmful gasses. And for chimneys, confirm that the flashing will be replaced for tear-offs, with new install of step and counter flashing.
