Roof Replacement Case Studies: Copper Cricket Installation on a Lexington Roof

Friday, July 20th, 2018 by Dan Styers

Challenge

Customer in Lexington, KY called in with a leak.  Ice & Water had been punishing the backside of the chimney for nearly 20 years. During the winter months, ice and snow will build up and cause leaks because of the water not being able to escape completely.

Solution

Harrison's Roofing fabricated a cricket and installed the cricket on the backside of the chimney. After setting the cricket in the right spot, we then installed a ice & water around the complete perimeter of the chimney. Upon drying the chimney in we fabricated our own step flashing out of copper. Next came the fun part! With one piece of copper, we fabricated the cover for the cricket, and the valley to divert the water.
