Before we started on the back porch
Before the leak was found
Notice that the old patio roof was nailed directly to the vinyl siding
The previous homeowner painted the gas water heater exhaust
The previous home owner painted the gas furnace exhaust white
Here is 1 of 6 old pipe boots that was not replaced when the roof was replaced. The installation company used silicone and paint just to save a couple of dollars.
Here we have removed the old porch ceiling. Added house wrap and we are beginning to install new flashing and siding.
Here we are installing new flashing at the base of the chimney. So that wind driven rain won't be able to get into the house and cause anymore damage.
We installed new flashing for the base of the chimney. This will keep wind driven rain out of the house.
We installed 12" X 12" flashing for the outside corner post for extra added protection against any future leaks for the new homeowner.
Installing the new siding
The installation of the new siding is complete.
The new siding has been installed
The leaks have been repaired and the new siding has been installed. And the exhaust pipes have been painted a flat black using a high temp paint.
On this project the home owner had a leak at the base of the chimney. And this little leak tuned into a big project.
