Denis from Stewart Roofing repaired my roof leak which occurred where the roof met a wall in two locations. His work was performed efficiently over two days and consisted of removing the lower 2 pieces of cedar siding to expose the wall, and also removing the flashing, shingles close to the wall, as well as step flashing.
Denis then installed a waterproof membrane on the edge of the roof deck and lower wall, new step flashing, shingles (to replace the ones that he removed) and also new wall flashing, which looks great. The roof looks better now than it did before he started, as he finished it with a nice brown-coloured flashing with a J-trim to make the cut siding look neat and tidy.
The debris was cleaned up on both days and I felt that Stewart Roofing respected my property. Denis gave me some good advice regarding the prevention of ice damming, which I plan on following. He also moved a down-spout at my request to allow me to more easily remove ice from that area of the roof.
When having a new roof installed, be sure to have new step flashing and wall flashing installed at the same time to avoid leaks in the future. I learned the hard way about this, but thanks to Stewart Roofing, I now feel less anxious when stormy weather approaches and am looking forward to testing next Spring’s ice melt to truly test the roof and flashing.
I would definitely recommend Stewart Roofing to anyone looking to have a new roofing system installed, or for leak repairs.
