Architectural Shingle Repair ?


Did my first architectural shingle repair today while repl a leaking vent cap.

Three tab repair...no problem. Flat bar, upper course, sealant...got all that. These threw me for a while this morning.

Kind of say yay, or nay to the method I came up with...and add comments.

Since these are laminated, no vanes you can leave a partial shingle -- cutting it back leaving a sq end as long as it's min 6" from the next butt joint ?? Yes ?

Then just carry on, cut back as needed -- placing new shingles over butt joints, etc, etc ?

A cool trick I learned is you can replace the rubber boot on Oatey brand pipe jacks. Leave the galvanized flashing, but change out the donut.

I still charge nearly the same.

You don't even have to change it, just slide on a new collar. If that's the problem.

Thanks for the input. This was a 12" x 16" cap for bath exhaust. Had several nails into the top part. Had to repl about 6 shingles.

Sounds like you sorted it out just fine. I had to do something similar to my own pellet stove chimney. The installers simply placed the boot/flashing on top of the architectural shingles and siliconed the snot out of it. Of course it didn't take long for it to begin leaking.
Peeled up several shingles with a flat bar, slid boot down to the deck and reshingled & tarred around the boot as necessary. No problems several years later.
