The most important day of a new roof’s life is the first. Most of what goes into a high-quality installation are barely visible once the shingles are installed.
Being Marietta’s top reroofer, we have seen it all. When we remove the old roof there is no telling what we’ll find. One time, we found where the origional builder had used left over vinyl walpaper to flash aroung the chimney.
It gets better! There was no cricket, either!
Without a cricket, water pooled up against the chimney. And since the builder had used premium wallpaper, he thought he didn’t need metal flashing.
