I had my roof redone for first time a year ago. Bungalow with attached garage, house built in ‘97, pretty straightforward.
Found out at end of day they had issue with flashing where roof meets wall and I come home to exposed step flashing.
First thing I thought was whoa, that’s not right. Company assured me they were not done and would be adding more white counter flashing to cover.
I’m familiar enough with building construction to know a seal against stucco like that will fail over time. There should be proper path for water to ensure it has no opportunity to get ‘behind’ the flashing (flashing should go behind stucco).
I told them I did not want counter flashing and that I’ve seen many houses in my area re-roofed, and never seen flashing applied at wall like that, and that it just looked wrong. They removed the new flashing, and did some work with the flashing that existed, to salvage it, and it looked back to ‘normal’.
Now, the roof is leaking at the wall (my garage is unfinished, so it’s not totally bad), and small leak.
I don’t know what to do now. Is there no way to fix this without the ‘flashing just glued to the outside’ method?? I don’t like that option at all, but don’t want leak either.
Any advice would be appreciated!!
You can see the old flashing in one of the photos-doesn’t look like step flashing though, but is there any way to make it work/reuse it?
