& Tomorrow (or the next day, or the next… depending on how busy or A.D.D.-distracted I am) I will post the “after” pics.
Currently, this is ~10 sq. of torchdown mod bit however @ first I thought it was a 90# granulated cold process because the seams / laps were so heavily tarred up. Plus, there are gasp staples all OVER the laps! Yoiks… no wonder there are 4 active leaks!
Pitch is about Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½:12 to 1:12 @ best (for all but about 3 squares), however @ least there is SOME slope.
I’m installing some custom modified metal for the edges; 6" on the deck, 2" on the drop (2Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½" drop if you take out the kick).
The new product will be
–CertainTeed FlintPrime primer directly on the deck
–CertainTeed FlintLastic SA Base
–CertainTeed FlintBond seaming cement (to resolve the air voids)
–CertainTeed FlintLastic SA cap sheet
There are no vertical turns, so no cant strips are required.
Access is pretty tight up under the one obvious section, but we’ll be putting in new L flash metal for the head laps, @ least 3" in the narrow spaces & 4" for all others.
The shingle roof is not going to be replaced due to financial constraints (that, & he’s like me & has his fingers crossed for hail). It’s a 2 layer system with a 1x plank decking system.
PVC penetrations will be capped with Portal Plus EPDM boots.
It’s our guess that the low slope section was added on around 12 - 15 years ago.
Now for the photos…
High temps are expected to be ~66F with a medium wind of 10 - 15 mph. There is minimal shade from the East or Southern exposure & about 60% of the way through the day, shade finally hits the affected areas of roof.
