I HAVE A SITUATION WHERE A 9:12 LANDS ON A 2:12 WHICH RAN INTO A WALL. THE WALL WAS TOPPED BY A 5:12 ROOF WHICH I HAVE EXTENDED TO FORM A CRICKET SPLITTING THE 2:12. I HAVE LAYED GRACE MEMBRANE 4'6" OUT FROM THE VALLEY,INSTALLED PREFORMED VALLEY METAL, AND SILICONED ALL SEAMS. THE ENTIRE ROOF NOW HAS 30lb FELT UNDERLAYMENT AND IS SCREWED EVERY 9"HOR AND 2'VERT. ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS?

I'm confused. What sort of roof are you installing?

IT'S A REMODEL OF A 150 YR OLD HOUSE, WHICH FOR THE GULF COAST IS VERY OLD. I CAN TRY TO ATTACH A PHOTO OR TWO IF YOU THINK THAT WOULD HELP EXPLAIN THE STRANGE SITUATION. IT STARTED WHEN THEY PUT TWO ENTIRE BUILDINGS CLOSE TOGETHER, AND BUILT AN ADDITION BETWEEN. PROBABLY ABOUT TURN OF THE CENTURY. THE 9:12 TO 2:12 TO WALL LIKELY STARTED LEAKING 90 YRS AGO IN HEAVY STORMS. THERE WAS A MONSTER GALV FLASHING THAT LOOKED LIKE IT DIDN'T COMPLETELY FAIL 'TIL A DECADE OR SO AGO. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT SCOTT

Unfortunately, the picturesdid not come through. Sounds like a neat old place though. If you wish, you can email direct to me at [email protected] It sounds like you have a decent plan in place. A couple of questions ... have you consulted with the roofing manufacturer? Is this roof done and you're having problems or is this still in the planning stages or is it done and you're just curious if there is anything else you can do? You mentioned siliconing all the seams ... was that on the roof panels themselves? Are you sure that the sealant you used is compatible with the paint finish on the roofing?
