Roof repair Advice from a Toronto roofing contractor
We’re going to help out this customer with a single flipped aisle kind of right above her bubble driveway so she’s not real happy about that so she called us out we’re going to take care of it.
It’s pretty simple first thing you want to do is inspect the felt paper, make sure there’s no big holes there they’re not textured make sure the tile is not broken. Your roofer should have just a simple pair of gloves so they don’t get the cocking on himself cocking gun Polly at the base talking and we’re going to show you when you fill up these channels.
You can see there’s a couple portions to the tile there’s the tile two nail holes obviously we won’t use a channel that connects them to the other tile and that’s where you want to glue the tiles together.
A lot of time the Toronto roofing contractor will simply take the tile, push it up into place and you can see if they’re not careful they’ll rip the other tar paper and then they put underneath the tile they just put the caulking gun
But if any water gets in this channel right here which it does and it hits the pocking then it goes back under the roof so if it hits the caulking back here it starts getting back under the roof and you can get leaks so basically just real simple someone put caulking right there.
Just a dab of caulking so we’re going to do that right now. I’m not wearing the gloves because I have to okay that’s just this caulking is really stiff you’re just going to squeeze it out and get a nice amount on there.
This is a base sealant and adhesive so when it dries you’re not going to be able to remove it so in roofing terms is considered a dollop of the cocking.
We’re just going to push the tile up in place and I have to do that with two hands and then I’ll show you what it looks like. We have the caulking all the way up here so any water that gets in this channel it’s going to continue to go out the bottom of the channel it’s not going to get blocked.
