We can take on the largest or smallest of roof replacement projects including over roofing installs, along with complete roof replacements that includes the removal of the roof and the re-application of roof substrate plywood which is nailed down according to building code standards.
Roof repair can include wind, storm & ice damage to exposed substrate repairs of trouble areas or the repair of shingles or flashing to existing roofs.
The most outer surface & defense of the roof & home the shingles create a strong waterproof membrane that allows the water & ice to shed from the roof into the eaves trough
- Built-Up Roof (BUR) The traditional hot-tar-and-gravel roof is built from three or more plies of waterproof material alternated with hot tar and ballasted by a layer of smooth river stone. Once made of tar paper, these types of roofs gradually are using more-advanced materials such as fiberglass membranes. Shingles
- Modified Bitumen A single-ply rolled roof similar to ice-and-water shield, but impregnated with a mineral-based wear surface. Torch-down systems involve heating the adhesive as the material is unrolled. Newer peel-and-stick systems are safer and easier.
- EPDM (short for ethylene propylene diene monomer) is a true rubber. The durable material resembles an inner tube, but it's engineered to resist damage from sunlight. EPDM can be mechanically anchored with fasteners, ballasted with stone, or glued.
Roof flashing is placed around discontinuities or objects that protrude through the roof of a building to deflect water away from seams or joints and in valleys where the runoff is concentrated, we will install custom flashing that is fitted specific to your roofing needs.
Skylight installations require specific flashing to prevent leaking and penetration of water & ice build up on roofs, we have the experience to address these concerns.
Chimneys are usually associated with a penetration through a roof which need to be addressed with flashing and water proofing system that allows for the water & ice build up to run off and not collect or over flow the flashing installation.
Always essential eaves troughs allow the water run off from the roof to flow to the downspouts and away from the home to prevent water and ice build up that can effect the buildings waterproofness right down to the foundations.
