Roofing Services Case Studies: Animals Living in Roof in Long Branch, NJ

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015 by Ralph Tawil

Challenge

Customer decided to do their roof, one of the concerns they had was that multiple repairs were made behind the gutter due to fascia rot.

The rotted fascia allowed squirrels and birds to get inside the home.Once we stripped the roof, we realized that the problem was due to a poorly constructed gutter system. The original owner thought it would be best if they cut into the roof line and had the water drain into the gutter from under the decking.  When the original homeowner decided to do his roof, he chose not to do a tear off, but a go over of the existing system. At that point, the roofer that did the second layer covered up the gutter thinking the shingles would keep the water outside of the roof. This may have worked for a little while but eventually the standing water worked its way behind the shingles and dripped back into the A-Frame forcing the water out behind the soffit and fascia.

Solution

Many handyman returned to the jobsite and kept fixing the rotted soffit and fascia with new wood and drip edge, however nobody ever looked above the roofline to realize the gutter was going right through the shingles. Our solution was to cut back the gutter, cap off the end and install new decking and flashing at the eaves. We also removed the smaller gutters on either side of the A-Frame, replaced the fascia with new wood, cladded the fascia with aluminum and reinstalled the gutters and pitched accordingly.
