This is a multi-dimensional dome with hips separating each area that we were requested to completely remove and relay. The reason why we performed the above operation was the fifty year breakdown of flashings and underlayments.

Chimney With Leak

Completed Repair And Restoration

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

A. This chimney and its flashing were a source of leaks for the owner. The problem was broken tile and poor caulked flashings, as well as breakdown of the original flashings after sixty years.

B. We removed tile + installed new sixteen ounce lead coated copper flashings, saddles and counter flashings. Please note how neat the step/flashings renewed are - and the storage of tile removed for replacement of the saddles -i.e. Functional flashing between chimney and tile roof.

C. This is the final appearance after the repair and restoration. Notice the new flashing in place and the broken tiles replaced that were to the left of the chimney in picture "A" as shown by the arrow.

This slate roof was shortcut repaired with roof cement spread in the joints separating one slate from the other. The integrity of the roof was destroyed by this repair. The whole area will have to be taken up, and new slates installed to return the roof to its proper appearance.

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

This flat deck was tied into a slate roof with termination bar. (Notice the arrow pointing to the bar) This bar should only be used at wall & coping areas for flat roofs. The bar is used here, causing the shelf to hold water flow from the slate roof. It is not a good connection between the two roof areas. This slate roof was blamed for the leak though the leak was the improper termination of the flat deck.

The repair included:

* Removing the termination bar
* Several courses of slate
* Extending the flat up and under the slate
* Reinstalling the slate removed

This corrected the leak.

Mismatched Tile Roof  Tile Roof Corrective Procedure  Tile Roof Near Completion

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

A. The tile roof as pictured was repaired some 20 years ago with mismatched tiles and improper installation procedures after a tree had fallen on this area. This allowed water entry that broke down the underlayment quickly and caused interior wall damage.

B. This is the corrective procedure that we took in the repair process using scaffolding and equipment as necessary.

C. The job at this stage is almost complete. We replaced the tile with matching tile and installed new underlayment and flashings in proper order to correct the problem.
