Roofing Tip (leaks onto soffits). http://www.eavestrough.ca/ Its surprising how often we see this problem with the shingles around the perimeter of the roof. It is often a structural mistake by the carpenters that built the home. When reroofing is the time to repair. Leaving this area flat or sunken down will usually cause water to leak onto the roof deck and filter out behind the fascia and onto the soffits. This will cause annoying leaks and eventually rotten wood. Not good! We see so much of it around Toronto. homeowners have to be educated so that this kind of thing doesn't keep getting covered over with each new roof.
Its an easy fix when the roof is stripped, but will anyone notice or care enough to bring it up?
It may take few years for the new shingles to settle into the low spot. Hopefully you will still have warranty and the roofers will come back and repair this for you if it was overlooked.
