Challenge

We received a call from the owners of this gorgeous home in Dunwoody, concerning a significant amount of water making its way indoors. This job was particularly tricky because the home had a mansard roof, exemplified by its flat top and four sloping sides around the house. The flat portion of mansard roofs often cause a problem when, after a bit of heavy rains, the water is unable to slide off the roof as it would normally do with the typical sloped structure. Instead the mansard roofs experience a pooling effect, allowing the water to sit stagnant on the roof’s surface, potentially damaged the shingles and rotting the wood decking below.
