The homeowner called us because their insurance company requested they have some repairs done to their roof. If these repairs were not done then the insurance company would deny coverage of the roof portion of their home. When we got to the property to inspect it, we discovered that these shingles had a glue-like substance painted on the water lines in the shingles. This "repair" had actually damaged those shingles and they were no longer working properly with the rest of the roofing system. You see, those lines in the shingle are designed for water to flow off of your roof. The glue-like substance that had been applied was gumming up those water lines. We were able to remove those shingles and found really good underlayment underneath the shingles. This was a good sign that water had not backed up in this area. We were able to install new shingles and get this roof back into tip-top shape.
