If you've ever wanted more natural light in your home, skylights are a stylish option. And the most cost effective time to install skylights is when you’re replacing the roof.
Ask about modern skylight installation.
"My roof was at the point where it was tarped because it was leaking, missing shingles, etc., so I had a lot of questions. The roof was being done on a house I don’t currently live in so I also had concerns about not being able to monitor the progress of the work.
Overall everything about having them do the work was great! They were very professional. Like I mentioned before I was not onsite. But my property was clean when they finished. And I spoke with neighbors after, who told me they were not disturbed by the work being done.”
Driving Rain Protection:
Most roofers install ice and water underlayment 3ft off the eaves. We install 6ft off all eaves, and 18 inches up all rakes and around all vents and penetrations (skylights, chimneys & exhaust fans, etc.)
This gives you added protection from driving rain coming from left or right side. If water should ever get under the drip edge or shingle, it's protected with extra ice and water underlayment.
High Wind Protection & Proper Nail Length:
Most manufacturers recommend using 1 ½ nails in the northeast, and that's exactly what we use every day, so you get better protection from wind. Yet, it's amazing how many roofing contractors cut corners and use the 1 ¼, or smaller nails to save a buck at the customer's expense. Over time, expansion and contraction will cause short nails to work themselves out. The result is premature failure.
Vent Pipe Leak Protection:
Roof vent pipes need to be sealed properly to prevent leakage. A pipe boot makes a watertight seal around each vent. We've found that the plastic pipe boots just don't withstand the elements as well as the metal ones. They also tend to crack when the fasteners penetrate the boot.
Plastic boots are cheaper and many contractors do use them, but we never do because we've seen too many failures.
Cleaner Lines and Tighter Seal
Many contractors try to save a buck by not using a drip edge up the "roof rakes."
It's one of those things that's not absolutely required, but we do it anyway because it gives a nice clean look and ensures a tighter seal to the roof deck around the edges of the roof.
A Thorough Cleanup
We always say that you get a bonus landscaping cleanup when getting your roof done. We protect the grounds and the existing landscaping with plywood and tarps.
When your roof is completed, we blow any debris off your roof with air, so your new investment looks really sharp.
Before we leave, we'll rake all of the tarped areas and sweep all around the house, sidewalks, decks and patios with a magnet to get any stray nails.
Lastly, we'll give your gutters a thorough cleaning to ensure proper drainage.
