Flashing problems led to leaks for this homeowner in Upper Marlboro, Md. Some of the bigger builders, in this case Ryan Homes, “cut corners” by using rubber EPDM roofing to flash wall/porch intersections where aluminum flashing should be used.
The result? You guessed it — the rubber disintegrates after a few years and rain water ends up in the house — causing damage and providing a breeding ground for mold (if left unfixed).
At Home Restorations of Md, we’ll replace this flashing with proper “custom made” aluminum, and provide some other services as well . . .
