McHenry Roofing is a Maryland contractor that provides comprehensive roofing services to those in the Baltimore area. It’s a company that is especially well-known for its ability to detect and resolve roof leak issues. This includes being very proficient when it comes to doing proper roof pipe flashing collar repair in Greektown. It’s such an important roof area to keep leak-free, that the company owner, Joseph Conley, wanted to talk more about the benefits of having properly sealed chimneys, roof vent pipes, and skylights.

Conley, says, “You can have the nicest layer of shingle or other roof covering material on top of your home or business, but it will not keep your roof leak free unless all the chimneys, vent pipes, and skylights that protrude through your roof are well-sealed where they meet the top of the roof. That’s why we make sure that our experienced roofing techs pay close attention to these areas when they are doing whole roof replacements or trying to detect where a customer’s roof leaks are coming from.”

The company owner went on to say that of course roof flashing and rubber boots are important when it comes to keeping water from seeping into a home or business around chimneys, vent pipes, and other objects that protrude through a roof. If this happens, these leaks can cause damage to a home or building's roof structure, walls, flooring, and contents. This he says is something that can cause some very expensive and unanticipated repairs.

It was also mentioned by Conley that roof flashing and roof boots perform other important functions besides preventing leaks. One of which is they make it harder for rodents, insects, birds, and other critters from gaining access into a home. All these unwanted pests are known to cause extensive damage to attics and other types of interior spaces once they make a home of them. Roof flashing and pipe boots also act as a form of insulation. This situation results in them helping to prevent airflow in and out of a home or building around chimneys, skylights, vent pipes, and more.

Metal roof flashing and rubber boots are also sometimes times placed in areas where they play an important role in channeling water off of a roof. The company owner added that anyone that is experiencing a roof leak is encouraged to give them a call right away. He stated that roof leaks only get worse over time, and this can result in even more extensive damage being done if roof leak repairs are put off and water continues to saturate areas of a home where it is not meant to be. When he or other company techs do a roof leak inspection, he says that roof areas with flashing and rubber boots are closely looked at.

Baltimore area customers that have had pipe flashing and boot repairs or other roof work done by the company often leave glowing reviews about that experience. Agnes Joseph stated, “We have hired McHenry Roofing for several different services. They have repaired a skylight for us, replaced our roof and gutters, and even installed new vinyl siding at our home. Beth and her team are friendly and personal. Our neighbors even noted how much curb appeal has been added to our home. I have recommended McHenry Roofing to both friends and family. Everyone has been pleased with their work.”

Similar sentiments were expressed by Addie McNeal who proclaimed, “We had a wonderful experience with Jeff and McHenry Roofing. We had them first inspect our roof, and we were so impressed by the comprehensive report and quote, that it was a no-brainer to use them. We continued to be impressed along the way, as they were very communicative about start times, the progress along the way, and the final product! We are out-of-town owners, so excellent communication is a must. And on top of that, the repair work was great too!”
