Valleys are deteriorating at a rapid rate. Why?

  • Build up of snow over the winter puts tremendous pressure on the valleys of your home.
  • If your valleys are not protected properly with ice/water damning or even if there are leaks at the seams of the plywood, over time that pressure may deteriorate the life expectancy of your shingles.
  • Most snow compacts in the valley, that is just a fact.

If I have skylights that leak, can they be repaired?
