Glennfield Manor

Glennfield Manor: This project in Meridian, Idaho, brought a repair we see often. Here we have a roof that continues down into a low-slope patio. When you have a low-sloped roof – in this case, this is a 2/12 pitch or lower for the patio – you cannot use shingles. Shingles in a low slope area will result in water damage, as you see in the pictures. For any pitch or 2/12 or lower, we recommend “rolled roofing” material, for which we use Owens Corning Deck Seal, a self-adhered roofing system. This roofing system is installed without nails, eliminating any penetrations. The first layer is a “base” and then it’s covered with the “cap.”

For this project specifically, you can see the extent of the damage to the wood decking was significant enough for us to replace the roof decking boards. We also replaced the first two courses of shingles of Glennfield Manor with Owens Corning Oakridge shingles with ice and water shield underneath. For additional protection, we also installed rolled metal that was custom-made for this transition from the roof face to the patio to prevent any future leaks. It’s important that if you have a low-slope section of your roof to get it inspected yearly to watch for water damage.
