Chimney Water Damage Repairs from Bad Roof Flashing


Home Remodeling Project Updates (11/29/2011)

Chimney Water Damage Repairs

Rotted Chimney Floor Joist FramingEver wonder what years of water build-up on untreated wood will do? The answer is simple: Lots and lots of rotten wood!

Steve Way Builders, LLC was recently contracted by the homeowners of this Lansing, Michigan home to investigate the source of some water damage showing on some drywall within the home. Upon further investigation, the source of the water problem was unmistakable. For roughly 20 or more years, water was running within the wall of the chimney due to improper roof flashing.

To fix the flashing and water damage problem, Steve Way Builders, LLC needed to re-flash the chimney and fix any wood that has been damaged. After removing the vinyl siding and sheathing on the chimney wall, the water damage was extensive. The sheathing was completely rotted away, as was one of the 16' wall studs in the chimney wall. Also badly rotted was the floor joist and subfloor system of the cantilevered chimney base.

After the rotted wood was removed, new joists were "sistered" in to the original floor system and a new stud was installed to finish the chimney wall framing. New insulation was installed in the chimney to replace the original water logged insulation. The new chimney wall was sheathed with plywood and covered with Tyvek HomeWrap to help prevent moisture from entering the chimney wall.

Repaired Water Damaged ChimneyWith the chimney framing fixed, Steve Way Builders, LLC removed roof shingles to fix the flashing surrounding the chimney. Aluminum coil stock was custom bent to create multiple flashing pieces for the chimney. After fixing the chimney flashing, the shingles and vinyl siding that were removed earlier were re-installed, completing the chimney repair.

As seen in this home, poor roof flashing can cause major problems within a home. The best way to prevent water damage is to have the job completed correctly the first time around. Unfortunately this is not always the case. When you find yourself with a water leak, fix the problem as soon as possible to prevent mold build-up and to keep the costs to fix the problem as inexpensive as possible.

What other suggestions to do have regarding water damage and roof flashing? Have you found yourself in a similar situation?

If you began utilizing VPN services for the work, 
you are probably recognizable by having starting  
up the VPN as well as then logging in on whatever application you should be safeguarded via the electronic private network. 
If you want to discover every wi-fi network and access point in your area, this is the tool to use. 
It kicks up the element of realism, brings  
the fantasy level up to whole new heights for your guests, 
and makes it a far more memorable evening.

It's amazing to visit this web site and reading the views of all colleagues about this article, while I  
am also keen of getting experience. Pria suka sex, itu sudah jelas. 
Juga ada yang menyampaikan, pria memikirkan sex setiap 7 detik. 
Bila tak ada alasan kesehatan, pria akan siap melakukan sex kapan pun. Namun, sayangnya tidak begitu adanya  
dengan pasangan si pria. Wanita tidak selalu ingin atau siap bercinta. 
Sesudah membaca tulisan dibawah ini, para wanita ketahuilah, saat  
suami Anda minta untuk melakukan hubungan sex, ia juga minta bantuan Anda untuk menjaga kesehatannya. 
Alasannya :  
Untuk hidup  
Suatu studi yang dilaksanakan di Queen's University di Belfast menunjukkan bahwasanya pria yang  
meraih orgasme seksual yang aman menunjukkan tingkat kehidupan lebih  
tinggi. Sementara mereka yang tidak sering melakukan hubungan seksual  
tingkat hidupnya setengah dari mereka yang mempunyai  
kebiasaan mencapai orgasme. Jadi, semakin sering Anda melakukan seks  
(yang aman bersama pasangan sah), semakin tinggi tingkat  
lama hidup Anda.  
Tubuh indah  
Majalah Men's Health sempat mengatakan bahwasanya melakukan hubungan sex merupakan alat paling  
mengasyikkan serta paling hebat untuk membakar kalori walau tidak akan membakar  
kalori sebanyak lari atau angkat beban. Satu sesi yang cukup panas dapat membakar  
sekitar 200 kalori. Pria bisa juga melatih otot pantat, pelvis, paha, serta lengannya, dan menambah rate  
detak jantung.  
Kesehatan prostat  
Nah, kanker prostat merupakan salah satu penyakit yang ditakuti  
pria di usia lanjut serta paling umum dihadapi pria. 
Pada usia muda barangkali ini bukan jadi perhatian besar, namun kanker ini  
dapat dihindari dengan "menguras" isi prostat dengan interval yang rutin. Percaya atau tidak,  
cara kuras terbaiknya yaitu dengan ejakulasi yang teratur. 
Ditulis British Journal of Urology International, pria pada umur 20-an dapat mengurangi sepertiga resiko terkena kanker  
prostat dengan berejakulasi lebih dari 5 kali dalam satu minggu. 
"Buat kamu juga, kok"  
Tak hanya alasan kesehatan diatas, sex juga nyatanya dapat meredakan rasa sakit untuk pria dan wanitanya. 
Sex untuk wanita dapat membantu menambah sistem imun tubuh, kesehatan sistem kantong  
kemih, dan mengurangi kemungkinan depresi. 
Sekian tentang Alasan Seks Baik Untuk Kesehatan Pria. 
Semoga bermanfaat :)

each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. 
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download  
it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
