There are numerous contractors willing to replace your old roof, but most contractors don't have the skill or the pride to do the job right. We examine the decking, underlayment, flashing and ventilation to make sure we don't miss any problem areas. We even take it a step further by applying four layers of protection to your new roof to keep water leaks away.
Most contractors don’t remove underlayment in order to inspect the wood decking. We, however, take the extra step to inspect the entire roof decking for overall strength and integrity to securely hold the nails and shingles.
Flashing is where most leaks occur. Many contractors give a minimum amount of attention to these areas. We recognize these areas to be the most important places to prevent water leaks. We apply a superior flashing sealant like Rescue 911 for the best protection possible. Additionally we take the extra step of painting visible flashing to match the color of the roof. With all these steps, you will have a leak-free, beautiful roof.
Without proper installation of underlayment your decking will be exposed to moisture that will cause your decking to become soft and appear wavy. This can also cause the shingles to crack and deteriorate more quickly. We only use plastic caps to install underlayment. We also use Valley Fast or Ice and Water shield in the valley giving protection like no other valley product. Although it is not a visible component, it serves a very important purpose.
Improper ventilation of your attic will cause high temperatures that will void the manufacturer’s warranty. High temperature may even cause damage to the structure of your house and exterior paint. It can even cause your roof to lose half its life due to premature shingle damage. It is essential that we do an analysis of current ventilation and give you the specified amount of heat releasing vents required to maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.
