As my age and neurosis increase, my sense that roofs should have no holes intensifies. While a very fine job was done repairing the roof a few years ago, Isaiah and I were were disappointed to find leaks in both the chimney and sewer vents (attic vents on 12/12 pitch near peak were perfect). These leaks were not the result of faulty installation, but faulty design, and more generally a faulty notion that it is a good idea to have holes in roofs. Last fall we removed a chimney, and so, for the first time in this roof's history, it has no holes. It is worth noting that the interior of the roof still shows char from former chimney fire(s). We will install sewer vents through gable ends, but it is our earnest hope that the roof shall have no holes.
