New roof leaking! need advice asap
This is not a major disaster but could quickly turn into one! Here is my story on my one week old roof!
Just my luck. Get a new roof and first rain the damn thing leaks! Called the roofer back out. He caluked- AGH! NOT what I wanted.
Said everything looked fine. Shouldn't be a problem now.
Well there is and caulk didn't fix it! Went up in the atic and found it leaking around the framing of a sky light.
Called my roofer at home about 9 p.m.
#1 he doesn't believe it's leaking as he flashed the skylight correctly he claims!
#2 claims it's not from the flashing but from the skylight glass part!
#3 Sometimes leaks happen even after a new roof is put up (his words) Tell me, do I have STUPID written across my face! I thought the idea to replace the roof was to STOP all leaks....
I invited him over tonight to see for himself where the leak is. He declined. Having a party (most likely paying for it with my 5,000 dollars.
This skylight NEVER leaked! Now my ceiling has water damage. The insulation inside the atic is soaked and as I type I have a bucket collecting water from the drip, drip, drip!
How do I get this across to this roofer? To think this guy came recommened! Where do I go from here?
He is coming out tomorrow with his trusty caulk gun I'm sure.
